Visitor Information

The ’62 Center for Theatre & Dance provides teaching, rehearsal, performance, and technical spaces for the Williams College Department of Theatre, Department of Dance, Williams student performing ensembles of all types, lectures and panel discussions, intercollegiate festivals, and nationally renowned visiting artists performing and working in collaborative residencies with our students. The Center is named in honor of the Williams College Class of 1962, whose members envisioned the state-of-the-art venue for performing arts and led the campaign to build the Center.

Directions & Parking

Ample free parking is available in the parking garage behind the theatre, just off of Route 7, and in lots across the street from the theatre and on campus. Handicapped parking spaces are available on level one of the garage.

Ticket Policies

Tickets to most Dance Department and Theatre Department performances are $3 per person. Tickets to CenterSeries events are $3 for students with a valid ID and $10 for all others. Credit cards and cash are accepted. Tickets are non-refundable and can only be exchanged within a run of the same performance, subject to availability. Refunds may only be issued for events that are canceled and not rescheduled or replaced.

Please pick up reserved tickets at the Will Call window no later than 30 minutes before the event. E-ticket and Print-at-Home options are also available. All unclaimed or unused tickets/e-tickets are subject to release 10 minutes prior to showtime.

All events in the ’62 Center are general admission and require a ticket for admittance unless otherwise stated. For sold-out performances, a wait list will be started at the Box Office one hour prior to curtain. Wait lists are in-person only and are highly recommended.

Late Seating

Performances at the ’62 Center begin promptly at the scheduled curtain time. Arriving late to a performance can be extremely disruptive to the artists and your fellow audience members. Late seating is subject to availability and is not guaranteed. When late seating is permitted, latecomers are seated at the discretion of house management. 

Cell Phone and Recording Devices

As a courtesy to both patrons and performers, we ask that you turn off your cell phones, pagers, and other electronic devices prior to entering the theaters and completely refrain from their use during performances. Photography and audio/video recording of any performance is strictly prohibited.
