Dancers In Multiple Shows:
The Venetian Theater will be vacated and cleaned in between each show. Even if your dancer is in back-to-back shows, you will be required to vacate the tent at the conclusion of the show so the venue can be properly cleaned.
If your dancer is in multiple shows, we encourage you to enjoy the beautiful grounds of the Caramoor. Feel free to pack a picnic and enjoy time with your family. You will have access to the Sunken Garden, Friends Field and the Picnic Lawns.
