At the Hylton Center

Food at the Hylton

Concessions are available for Hylton Presents and Hylton Family Series and other select performances. All food and beverages require a ticket, which can be purchased at the cashier station located directly next to the concessions station in the Didlake Grand Foyer.  Cash and credit cards are accepted.

 New for 2022-2023: the Hylton Center is offering an elevated snack experience for our patrons that includes:

  • Mediterranean hummus with fresh veggies & mini pita rounds 
  • A “jarcuterie” of assorted meats, cheeses, olives, nuts, and dried fruit in a "jar" (limited quantities available)
  • Fresh fruit & berry cup with cream cheese fruit dip
  • Cookies, snacks, chips, and pretzels
  • Beverages including beer, wine, champagne, soda, and water

These food selections may vary by performance. Food and beverages are not permitted inside the theater with the exception of bottled water and beverages contained in Hylton Center tumbler cups.

Pre-Performance Discussions

Sponsored by the Friends of the Hylton Center

Join us at the Hylton Center one hour prior to most Hylton Presents events, and enjoy our lively and popular Pre-Performance Discussions. These forums are led by local experts and, often, by the artists themselves. Here, patrons are encouraged to ask questions and are able to gain a bit of insight and knowledge about our world-renowned guest artists. These captivating exchanges provide a unique opportunity to go behind the scenes!

When available, information about the speaker(s) is posted on the event listing for each performance.
