Security protocols may vary slightly for each venue and show.

Weapons of any kind are prohibited in the Fisher Theatre, this includes off-duty law enforcement and military persons.

Broadway In Detroit reserves the right to remove disruptive patrons WITHOUT refund. Everyone is at our venues to experience a wonderful performance, please do nothing to take that away from anyone.


All Broadway In Detroit venues allow guests to bring a small purse or personal bag with them to the performance. We defer to our security and front-of-house staff to determine what is a reasonable size for the performance you are attending. Some family / kids shows permit small children to attend. For those performances, diaper bags are acceptable.


If your purse or bag will not fit easily in your lap or next to you on the floor between you and another patron, it is too large to bring to the theatre. Backpacks, suit cases, and other large containers are prohibited. 


When you arrive at our venues, please have your tickets ready to be verified and scanned by our door hosts. For Mobile Tickets, we recommend reviewing our Mobile Ticketing Guide HERE prior to your arrival.  For Ticketmaster Tickets, please DO NOT "Screenshot" your tickets. Ticketmaster uses a rotating barcode and your barcode may change by the time you reach our scanning stations. Prior to having your tickets scanned, please ensure that your phone is NOT on "Dark Mode."
