You are also welcome to park in any visitor spot you find on campus, or along Park Avenue.

The Box Office

We are committed to offering our patrons the highest level of customer satisfaction at the Annie Russell Box Office. Our box office staff is comprised of committed and energetic Rollins students, and managed by our Box Office and Marketing Manager, Chelsea Hilend. The Annie Russell Box Office is located to the left of the main doors of the Annie Russell Theatre. The box office opens 10 days prior to each production, and closes on the final day of each production. For detailed information on our box office, please click here.


We offer handicapped parking in the Alfond Sports Center lot directly behind the theatre. Please allow your permit to show clearly in your windshield. If you park in the SunTrust Parking Garage, you can take our shuttle, "Annie's Rapid Transit," to the theatre. Our shuttle stop is on the southeast corner of the garage, nearest the pedestrian crosswalk at Fairbanks and Interlachen.

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 hearing assist devices for hearing impaired patrons. You may request these devices from the House Manager upon entering the theatre.
