Kauffman Center places the highest priority on the comfort and safety of its patrons.

If you have questions regarding emergency procedures, please see our House Manager for detailed information.

Please proceed orderly to the closest door marked with a lighted Green Exit sign.  Ushers will direct you to the closest and safest building exits.  There are numerous exit doors on each side of Helzberg Hall that lead directly outside.  The areas to the north of the Kauffman Center (Bartle Hall parking lot, Bartle Ballroom Courtyard) are good places to meet others in your group if you become separated.

You will be asked to stay in your seats inside Helzberg Hall. If appropriate, announcements will be made to direct you to a different location as necessary.

It is imperative that you listen to and comply with any and all specific instructions that may be announced.
