  • Doors open an hour before showtime, so get there early to see costumed characters, hear holiday tunes on the Wurlitzer organ, and grab treats to nibble on.
  • Bring a credit card along with your appetite. Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra shows are cashless, from the bars to the cookie counter.
  • If you have little ones, head upstairs half an hour before the show begins for a seasonal storybook reading.
  • Get your Instagram urges out in the lobby, because no photos or videos are allowed during the performance.
  • Don’t let grandma get run over by a reindeer: Be aware that puppeteers perform in the aisles during songs.
