Credit Requirements


Receiving Credit for Attending Performances


Encore performance

Rules To Follow To Receive Encore Credit:


Scan in and out of all performances. If your card does not work, contact Ms. Misha Neil right away! Non-Encore students should not scan in.


Do not remove the name portion of your ticket stub. If there is a problem with the scanners, your ticket stub is used to determine your attendance.


Do not use a ticket that belongs to someone else. If your friend cannot attend a show, bring the ticket in 30 minutes prior to the show, and have the name on the ticket changed to your own.


You must bring your Elmira College ID to gain entrance to all performances. Our student workers will not input your information, or allow you to do it. No ID...No show, and No credit for coming to the show.


Talking or text messaging on cell phones is forbidden, as it is at any performance venue. If your cell phone is on, you will be asked to leave and you will not receive credit.


Sit in the seat for which you were given a ticket. We do not have open seating at the Gibson Theatre. Encore students are not the only audience members at the performances. If you are in a seat that belongs to someone else, you will be asked to move.


Arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start of the performance. If you arrive late, you WILL NOT be allowed to enter.


Hold your applause! If a piece contains multiple movements, wait until each movement is completed and the entire piece is finished before applauding.


Do not talk during performances.


Do not leave the performance, except for an emergency, in the middle of a piece. Wait until the end of the piece to leave your seat. At the end of the performance wait until all performers have completely left the stage before exiting.


Food and beverages are not allowed in the theatre.


Do not rest your knees above the top or drape your legs over the seat in front of you.


Show respect to your fellow students, faculty, patrons and performers. Remember it is not easy to get up in front of a group of people to perform!
