Amenities & Accessibility

The theatres, parking, and bathrooms are all fully accessible to persons with disabilities. 



Drinks and light refreshments are available for purchase with card or Apple pay at the lobby bar one hour prior to each Mertz Theatre performance. Drinks purchased in Asolo Rep cups with lids are permitted inside the theatre; no food is allowed. Refreshments are made available through a partnership with Morton’s Gourmet Market and Catering.

At this time, we are no longer accepting cash as a payment option for refreshments.

Hearing Loop Sysytem

Asolo Repertory Theatre is now equipped with a hearing loop system in both the Mertz and Cook Theatres to assist those with hearing aids or cochlear implants equipped with telecoils (T-Coil). Sound is transmitted directly from our P.A. system without background noise or interference to better serve our patrons. By turning your hearing aid to “T” for reception, you will be able to hear our performances with improved amplification and clarity. Seats in the Mertz NOT equipped with the loop include Row A in the orchestra and Row F in the mezzanine. For those patrons who do not have the T-Coil system, complimentary hearing amplification headsets are available in our lobby for both theatres.




Free parking is available in front of the theatre, however close proximity parking for weekday matinee performances is limited. Please plan to arrive early. Accessible parking is on the front and east sides, with ramp access to the lobby.

Wheelchair Accommodations

Wheelchair seating is available in all theatres and must be requested in advance. Please call the box office at 941.351.8000.


Mertz Theatre orchestra seating is at street level. An elevator is available to the mezzanine, with a few steps into seats. Balcony seating is steep, and at least one flight of stairs must be maneuvered. In the Cook Theatre, most seats require mobility up or down a small number of stairs.
