General Behavior

2. Organizations must understand that the theatre is located on a high school and college campus and noise levels must be controlled as to minimize the effect on students in classes and/or in a dormitory situation.

3. Organizations are responsible for the removal of excessive amounts of trash created by their function.  A dumpster is available in the back of the venue. Please do not overfill trash receptacles and place recyclables in containers designated for that purpose.

4. Organizations will be allowed access to the facility precisely at the time designated by contractual agreement. Maintenance and janitorial staff are not authorized to let organizations into the facility without a member of the theatre management present.

5. NO FOOD OR BEVERAGES are allowed in the auditorium at any time. Organizations are asked to cooperate with this rule and to assist in seeking the cooperation of the audience members of your function or event.

Parking, Drop-off, and Delivery

1. Organizations must refrain from parking in the area in front of the main stairway leading to Keoho Plaza in the front of Mamiya Theatre designated as a FIre Lane. This area may be used as a drop off area only. 

2. Loading and unloading may be done on the Loading Dock in the back of the theatre, however - parking on the loading dock is strictly prohibited and is used as a Handicap Accessible area and Emergency Vehicle zone before, during and after events.  

Theatre Exterior and Keoho Plaza

1. Tables are available to place outside the venue and/or in the main lobby area for organizations to use. Remember that food and beverages are not allowed inside the auditorium, however - food and beverages may be served or sold outside the venue as long as it is consumed outside the facility.  House management must be present during the event to prevent food and beverages from entering the venue.

2. Tents and canopies are allowed in the Keoho Plaza as designated by contractual agreement.

3. Alcoholic beverages are not allowed without the written permission of Saint Louis School and the theatre management of the Dr. Richard T. Mamiya Theatre. Organizations must also present a certificate of permission to serve alcohol from the State of Hawaii Liquor Commission.

4. Many organizations find the Keoho Plaza area an excellent place to meet and greet the performers after the show. Audience members are not allowed backstage before, during, and after the event.

Main Lobby

1. You must notify the Theatre Manager if you intend to sell or display items in the main lobby area.  Sale of CD's, T-Shirts, and similar items are permitted. NO FOOD OR BEVERAGES may be sold in the main lobby area. 

2. Signage on tables must be freestanding - plexiglass frames are encouraged. Taping posters and signs on the theatre windows and on the koa wood walls are strictly prohibited.

3. While many organizations want to use the main lobby area to meet and greet the performers after the show, we recommend, due to the size of the lobby, that you move your audience to the exterior of the theatre and outside to the Keoho Plaza courtyard for your meet and greet.  Remember, audience members are not permitted backstage before, during and after the performance.


1. NO FOOD OR BEVERAGES are allowed in the auditorium.  Organizations are expected to inform their entourage as well as enforce this policy with participants and audience members.

2. Organizations must hire or supply their own House Manager who will be responsible for following the rules, policies, and protocol of the theatre management.  This includes but is not limited to policies regarding ticket taking, handicap seating, distribution of playbills or programs, and the use of cameras and recording devices.

3. Organizations are allowed to reserve seats and/or rows for their purpose. We recommend the use of rope and discourage the use of tape to prevent the damage of the seat fabrics and koa wood backs and armrests.

4. Organizations are asked to discourage their participants as well as audience members from placing their feet on the backs of the seats. This will minimize the deterioration of the fabric and koa wood backs of the seats.

5. Organizations are asked to make a standard announcement before the start of each performance which notifies the audience about the general rules and policies of the theatre.
