This stipulation is clearly marked on each ticket. Should a decision be made to cancel or postpone an event, this information will be posted as soon as it is determined.

Late Seating Policy

Late seating once a performance has begun is at the discretion of the performer.

For theatrical events Peabody Opera House does not allow patrons arriving late to enter the theater once the performance has begun. Latecomers will not be seated until there is an appropriate break, which will be determined by the Peabody Opera House Management and the show production, or until intermission if applicable. There are two primary reasons for this policy:

  • It is very distracting to the performers on stage and may result in an injury.
  • It is very disruptive to the patrons that arrived for the performance on time.

If you must leave the performance at any time once it has begun, you will not be readmitted until an appropriate break or intermission. Please remember to allow a sufficient amount of travel time to arrive at the Peabody Opera House and park your vehicle at least 30 minutes prior to your performance’s start time. Remember to allow additional travel time as a result of poor weather conditions, heavy traffic, road construction, other metro St. Louis events and parking congestion.

Lost and Found Children

If you become separated from your child during an event, please seek the nearest Guest Service Host or Security Guard. When bringing children to an event it is always helpful to make sure that the child has their contact information on them.  

Lost and Found Items

All found lost items are turned into the Guest Service Center located across from the box office at the main entrance. Guests may inquire about items at anytime during an event and have their item and contact information logged in for easier retrieval when found. After an event, guests may call the Peabody Opera House Lost and Found Hotline at 314-499-7602. All found items are held for 30 days. Any items still on property after 30 days are donated to local charity organizations.
