Theatre Conveniences

Arrival for performances 
The Luhrs Center lobby generally opens ninety minutes prior to scheduled events, and seating begins approximately one half hour before the performance. Late arrivals are seated during appropriate intervals in the performance at the direction and discretion of the performer.

Headphone systems for the hearing impaired are available upon request for all Luhrs Center performances (limited number of devices available). Please see a ticket services associate at the Box Office to obtain a device. Please note that you will be required to leave your driver’s license at the Box Office until you return the device immediately after the performance.

Complimentary Coat Check

Coat check service is offered at most regularly scheduled performances. The coat check room is located in the center of the lower lobby as you enter the main doors. 

Refreshments are available for purchase at most performances in the Orrstown Bank upstairs lobby. Please note that all refreshments must be consumed prior to entering Grove Theatre.  Outside food and beverages are not permitted in the building, and should be disgarded or returned to your vehicle prior to entering the building.

Restrooms are located on every level of the Luhrs Center. As you face the stage, women’s restrooms are found on the right and men’s restrooms on the left. To find the closest restroom to your seat, please ask an usher.


For your convenience, an elevator services all levels of the Luhrs Center and is located to the left of all lobby levels.

Emergency Contact 
If a patron would need to be contacted during a performance for an emergency situation, please contact the Shippensburg University Police at 717-477-1444 and let an officer know the names and seat numbers of the patrons to be contacted.

Courtesy Phones
In the event of an emergency only, patrons may use courtesy phones available throughout the Luhrs Center (on campus and local calls only). Please ask an usher for assistance in locating the courtesy phone closest to your seat.
