Seating Charts
The nature of the Sheldon Vexler Theatre as a black box theater allows the seating configuration to be adjusted to meet the needs of each production. The Vex has two traditional seating layouts, thrust and in-the-round, but it is possible for the creative team to manipulate the seating configuration as needed. Please see the two standard seating charts below. 

*Credit card transactions for The Vex will appear on statements as 'Barshop JCC', not Sheldon Vexler Theatre.
