Plan Your Visit

Helpful Hints for
Attending the Annie



Allowing Time for Campus Congestion

Always allow yourself ample time for parking, especially because you may need to walk from the Sun Trust Parking Garage. There are sometimes multiple events happening on campus around us, so plan for possible congestion on campus roads.


Late Comers

If you arrive late, please proceed through the Late Comers Entrance door, located to the immediate right of the Box Office. Our House Manager will assist you to your seat at an appropriate moment. Please do not try to enter through the main front doors of the theatre once they are closed.


Concessions

We are pleased to offer concessions before our productions and throughout intermission. Our concession booth is to the right of the main doors, and is completely staffed by the Rollins Players student organization. They offer a variety of candy, sodas, and bottled water. Please be aware that no food or drink is allowed inside the Annie.


Dining and the Surrounding Area

There is a variety of fine restaurants and shopping experiences in the area surrounding Rollins College. We encourage you to expand your visit to include a Winter Park experience! Whether eating at Park Plaza Gardens, taking the scenic Winter Park Boat Tour, or shopping at The Pottery Barn, there’s a full day’s worth of activities just around the corner.

Parking

We always recommend that our patrons park in the Sun Trust Parking Garage, located conveniently close to Rollins Campus. The Sun Trust Parking Garage is free for Annie Russell ticket holders by simply presenting your ticket stub upon exiting the garage.

The Sun Trust Parking Garage is located on the corner of Lyman Street and Park Avenue. To locate the garage, proceed towards Rollins College. When you reach the intersection of Park Avenue and Fairbanks, turn onto Park Avenue heading North, or away from Rollins. Make a Right at Lyman Avenue and the Parking Garage is immediately on your right.

Walking from the garage: Once your vehicle is safely parked, exit the parking garage on the South side (the side closest to Rollins College). You will be approaching Fairbanks Avenue. There is a pedestrian crosswalk traffic light, which will guide you safely across Fairbanks and onto Rollins campus. Proceed onto campus, following the brick walkway. The Annie Russell Theatre is directly ahead, located next to the Chapel.


Accessibility

For our patrons with disabilities, we do offer handicapped parking spaces on campus surrounding the theatre. Please allow your permit to show clearly in your windshield.

The Annie Russell offers two wheelchair access ramps into our theatre. They are located on the left side of the building, around the corner from the Box Office. One ramp takes you up in front of the box office, and into the front entrance of the theatre doors. The second ramp allows you to enter directly into the theatre seating area. You will require an usher’s assistance to access this second door, as it is only opened from the inside.

In order for us to accommodate your seating needs, please make our Box Office staff aware of any special requests in advance such as wheelchair seating, or handicap accessible seating.

We also have upgraded hearing assist devices for hearing impaired patrons. You may request these devices from the House Manager upon entering our theatre.
