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. Unique charts will be uploaded to each show's page on The Vex's website.

*JCC Member rates available for current members of the Barshop Jewish Community Center.
