Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the dress code?

Dress like you’re going out to a show rather than a traditional gala — think festive, dressy casual. Wear something elevated, fun, and comfortable.

What food and drink will be available?

During the reception, our Premier guests will enjoy hors d’oeuvres and an open bar with beer, wine, and a signature cocktail. We recommend grabbing dinner before or after the show.

Is the venue accessible?

Capital Turnaround features ramps that allow wheelchair access and has ADA restrooms.

Are there any age restrictions?

We welcome guests 18+ at Armed with the Arts. If you have any questions, please contact Rebecca Klinger.
