Plan Your Visit

Visit us at: Commodore Macdonnough School, 1701 South DuPont Highway, St. Georges, DE 19733

How To Get To The Theatre
The Commodore Macdonnough School is located underneath the St. Georges bridge near the DMV. When you get off the bridge, you will pass the school and have to use a left turn lane to make a U-turn. Instead of going back on the bridge, make a right to the yellow school building. Please review Google Maps or your GPS with the address: 1701 South DuPont Highway, St. Georges, DE 19733 for further directions.
Retail & Food
For each of our performances, we will be selling merchandise and concessions at the beginning and intermission (if applicable) for affordable prices.
Hours of admittance for each of our performances is 30 minutes before the show begins. So, for example, if a show starts at 7:30pm, the doors open at 7:00pm.
Parking is available to the front and to the right of the building. For the front entrance, you need to go past the school a little bit and make a right. For the right entrance, it is an open lot. You walk into our theatre in the entrance with the handicap accessible ramp under the Commodore Macdonnough School.

Theatre Etiquette

We ask for you to review our policies for being an audience member

Please be courteous to your neighbors:

  • Think “inside the box” while you enjoy the performance (“inside” your chair area)
  • Remove any headwear that may obstruct the view of your fellow theatre goers
  • Refrain from removing your shoes
  • Remember this is not a sing-along special, unless you are prompted by the actors on stage
  • Refrain from talking after the lights have gone down; save your commentary for after the show, you know … when you call all your friends to tell them they must see it.

All Griffin Theatre performances are copyrighted; there is NO video or audio recording or photography of any kind allowed during the shows. Even if you think you are being discrete, the actors on stage are very aware, and that can ruin the magic for everyone.

If you see someone behaving inappropriate, please continue to enjoy the show after you inform a House Usher or other staff, allowing the Griffin Staff to enforce Griffin policies.

Theatre is a special treat, and though there is not a dress code, please remember it is a great opportunity to look and feel your best.

Please arrive on time, allowing yourself at least 30 minutes before your performance to enjoy the Theatre offerings.

Please consider visiting the restroom before you take your seat or at the intermission. Using the facilities during the performance can be disruptive to your fellow theatre goers.

Please turn off your cell phone and refrain from texting, emailing, or checking messages during the performance (the light from your phone is distracting for both the actors on stage and your fellow theater goers).

Please consider unwrapping your cough drops or hard candy before the show begins.
