Dress Code
Guests often wear both formal and casual attire to attend performances at the Gallagher Bluedorn, and all is welcome. Attire often varies by performance type.

Due to acoustical design of the heat and air conditioning system, cool breezes can sometimes be experienced during a show. Guests are welcome to bring a light jacket or sweater to help accommodate.

If you have specific concerns, contact the events office.


Typically, we can offer ticket exchanges depending on show seating availability. Contact UNITix for more information.
