Personal Care Attendants

Visitors with severe disabilities may be accompanied by paid Personal Care Attendants (PCA) at no additional cost during their visit to the Colonial Theatre. This applies to all ticketed events that the visitor is attending. This also applies to individual, membership, complimentary and group sales tickets.

Visitors with PCAs who wish to purchase advance tickets for concerts or movies should contact 610.917.1228 to request complimentary companion tickets for a paid PCA. These tickets must be picked up in person by the visitor and the paid PCA at the Box Office.

It is advised that visitors call 610.917.1228 for tickets for reserved seating events early to insure that a seat is available next to the handicap wheelchair space at the theatre.
