Friends and/or family are not welcome backstage or in the Ice Arena/dressing room area, either before or after the show or during intermission… to hang out and visit. Once you have checked in for rehearsal or performance, you should concentrate solely on the show and will have a blast visiting after curtain call.  Ice arena restrooms, water fountains and vending machines are for cast and crew… no one else. Don’t embarass yourself or your friends by having a staff member invite to leave. They should not hang out in the parking lot either, waiting for you to get done. Tell them when to come back… after rehearsal or performance.
