SERVICE ANIMALS / GUIDE DOGS
The Florida Theatre welcomes service animals with their owners. A service animal is a dog or miniature pony trained to perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. In accordance with the law, you will not be asked about your own disability, and you will not be asked to provide documentation of your service animal’s training, but you may be asked whether an animal is a trained service animal and what tasks the animal has been trained to perform. The behavior of a service animal must be under the control of its owner, and the service animal should not pose a direct threat to the health or safety of others. Owners who are unable to take effective action to control an out-of-control service animal may be asked to remove the animal from the premises. When purchasing a ticket, please let us know if your service animal will be able to rest at your feet during a performance or if additional provisions are needed.
