The Kenley Amphitheater Seating Options
What is the difference between your three seating options?
- Orchestra Seating consists of three rows of removable seating set up right in front of the stage in the orchestra pit. Chairs are provided, all orchestra seats are assigned seating.
- Reserved Seating consists of nine rows of permanent seats, all individually assigned.
- General Admission is a first-come-first-serve grass area. You can bring a blanket, your own chair, or rent a chair for $1.00 (while supplies last). We do not have a height restriction on chairs but ask that you bring something reasonable so people behind you can still have a nice view. Most patrons bring a camping style or fold-able lawn chair. There is a limit on how many people fit on the grass, we do not oversell it.
