Accessibility

Accessible Parking

We offer accessible parking in the Warren Administration lot next to the soccer field. Please allow your permit to show clearly in your windshield. 

Entering the Theatre & Getting Seated

The Annie Russell offers two wheelchair access ramps into our theatre. They are located on the left side of the building, around the corner from the Box Office. One ramp takes you up in front of the box office, and into the front entrance of the theatre doors. The second ramp allows you to enter directly into the theatre seating area. You will require an usher’s assistance to access this second door, as it is only opened from the inside.

In order for us to ensure your visit to the Annie is as enjoyable as possible, please share any requests for seating accommodations at the time you book your tickets.

Deaf and Hearing Impaired Patrons

Each production offers a performance with American Sign Language interpretation. Please view our Current & Upcoming Shows for the date and time. When booking your tickets, please select the yellow seats labeled, "ASL Seating (Choose if you need accommodations)."

We have hearing assist devices for hearing impaired patrons. You may request these devices from the House Manager upon entering the theatre.

Getting Around

Directions and Parking

The Annie Russell Theatre is in the heart of campus, right next door to Knowles Memorial Chapel. We recommend our patrons use the SunTrust Parking Garage, located just off Park Avenue between Comstock and Lyman Avenues. The garage is guaranteed to have a space for you and costs $6 for up to four hours of parking.

From I-4 East Take the Fairbanks Avenue Exit 87. Turn right onto Fairbanks and continue East for almost 2 miles. Turn left onto Park Avenue. Turn right on Comstock Avenue. The SunTrust Parking Garage will be on your left.

From I-4 West Take the Fairbanks Avenue Exit 87. Keep left at the fork onto Fairbanks and continue east for almost 2 miles. Turn left onto Park Avenue. Turn right on Comstock Avenue. The SunTrust Parking Garage will be on your left.

From S.R. 436 Turn west onto Aloma Avenue (heading towards I-4). Continue on Aloma Avenue for approximately 3 miles. Aloma Avenue becomes Fairbanks Avenue. Turn right onto Park Avenue. Turn right on Comstock Avenue. The SunTrust Parking Garage will be on your left.

After parking your car, exit the garage on the southeast corner (the corner closest to Fairbanks and farthest from Park Avenue). There you'll find a burgundy sign indicating our shuttle stop. Annie's Rapid Transit is available to transport you one hour prior to curtain and directly following the performance. If you're comfortable walking, cross Fairbanks at the large crosswalk, enter campus underneath the metal archway, and the Annie Russell Theatre will be the second building on your left. 

Here's a map that illustrates these walking directions and marks the shuttle stop.

Late Comers

If you arrive late, please proceed through the Late Comers Entrance door, located to the left of the main doors of the theatre. Our House Manager will assist you to your seat at an appropriate moment. Please do not try to enter through the main front doors of the theatre once they are closed.
