About Rinker Playhouse
Located on level three of the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, Rinker Playhouse offers a theatre experience like no other. The 285-seat venue features an intimate setting that invites visitors to sit back, relax, and enjoy the show. Most presentations have reserved seating that can sell out quickly, so make sure to get your box office tickets in advance! Before the performance begins, we also recommend grabbing a bite to eat at Rosemary Square. Whether you’re looking for a quick meal or an elegant sit-down dinner, you’ll find several amazing restaurants just steps away from the Kravis Center.
