Taking Your Seats:
Allow ushers to guide you. Facing the stage, move down the aisle to your seat, saying a polite ‘excuse me; and ‘thank you’ to the patrons already seated. Sit on your own seat and not the one you wished for, disrupting proceedings when the person shows up. During the performance, if you need to step out, do not return to your seat till there is a break. If seated in the premium box in an opera, adjust your seats to make sure that everyone gets a good view.
