Batavia Fine Arts Centre School Day Show Policies

  • Between the hours of 7am and 3pm, Monday through Friday, the Batavia Fine Arts Centre is a BUS ONLY location. All performance attendees MUST arrive and be picked up by bus. There may be other accommodations for cast/crew, but these must be discussed with the Theatre Manager ahead of the performance(s).
  • There is no parking for busses on site. Busses must leave the campus during the performance and may return no earlier than 10 minutes prior to the end of your performance.
  • Schools who choose to violate the busses only direction will only be permitted to park cars in the subdivision across from the Batavia Fine Arts Centre. Parking is limited to two (2) hours. The Batavia Fine Arts Centre is not responsible for tickets issued.
  • Prior to your performance date, it is recommended your group calls all performance attendees to remind them that the Batavia Fine Arts Centre is a bus only location with the script below.
    • We are calling today regarding your upcoming visit to the Batavia Fine Arts Centre onDATE for the performance of TITLE.​  The reason for our call is to reiterate the information sent to you by YOUR COMPANY NAME, which is that the Batavia Fine Arts Centre is a Bus only location.  There is no parking onsite, and street parking is limited and monitored by city police as it is 2 hour parking only.  The reason for this is that the Batavia Fine Arts Centre is on the campus of Batavia High School and all parking spaces are purchased by students during the school day.  Students come and go throughout the day, so even parking spots that appear open at one instance are not open at all times and those students need to be able to have full access to their spots between the hours of 7:00 am and 2:30 pm.  Please communicate this to all people who may need to have this information.  Thank you very much and we look forward to seeing you on DATE.  Feel free to call us with any additional questions at PHONE NUMBER.
  • Doors to the building will open 30 minutes before your scheduled performance. Please ensure your performance attendees arrive at that time and not earlier.
  • Your group needs to assign a minimum of five (5) adults to direct and instruct the busses, two (2) at the entrance to the parking lot,  two (2) in front of the Batavia Fine Arts Centre main doors and (1) at the east entrance to the parking lot. Please dress for the weather.
  • Performance attendees only have access to the backstage bathrooms along with cast/crew. Your group needs to assign at least two (2) adults to solely direct attendees to the bathrooms, one (1) on the lobby side of the backstage doors and one (1) on the backstage side. Batavia Fine Arts Centre staff cannot be responsible for directing attendees to the bathrooms.
  • If your group would like to have access to the Batavia High School bathrooms during the day, three (3) adults, at least one (1) male and one (1) female, need to submit to a background check to be run by the Batavia High School. On the day of your show, 2 of these individuals will wear an identifying lanyard and stand on the Batavia High School side of the magnetized doors and direct children to the bathrooms. Your group will also need to assign one (1) adult to stand on the Batavia Fine Arts Centre side of the magnetized doors to let children pass through. This adult will be given a pass key by the Batavia Fine Arts Centre staff. PLEASE NOTE only children will be allowed into the Batavia High School bathrooms. Adults must stay on the Batavia Fine Arts Centre side of the doors. Adults who wish to stay with the children or who need the bathrooms themselves must use backstage bathrooms.
