The Building

The Tarragon Theatre is a large brick building where plays are created and performed. There are two theatres in the building; the Mainspace which seats 200 people and the Extraspace which seats 100 people. Both theatres have accessible seating.

The main entrance to our building is on Howland Avenue near the corner of Bridgman Avenue. The sidewalk is level leading up to the glass double doors. On your left there is a button you can press to open the door. This button sometimes gets stuck in the cold weather and you may need to press it more than once. Our staff are happy to help if needed.

When you come in from outside you will enter the lobby. Below is a picture of what the lobby looks like when you enter from the front doors. The lobby may be busy with many people talking and moving around. The lobby is brightly lit and there may be music playing. We have painted the lobby since these photos were taken, some of the walls are now blue. The art on the walls changes depending on the show.

The lobby is where audience members wait before going into a theatre to experience a show. In the lobby you can sit on a bench, use the washrooms, and buy a snack or drink from the bar.

If you enter through the main doors, the box office is on your left. The box office is where you can purchase a ticket if you haven’t already or connect with a staff member. The doors directly ahead of you go into the Mainspace theatre and to your right are the doors to the Extraspace theatre, the bar, and the washrooms. If you need help directing to the theatres, please approach a volunteer or ask at the box office.

It is recommended that you keep your mask on in the lobby unless eating or drinking.

The box office is where you can buy a ticket to see the show. If you already bought a ticket it will have been emailed to you. If you wish, you can pick up a printed ticket at the box office. The box office staff will ask you for your first and last name to find your ticket.
