  1. A permit is required for any group use of the amphitheater; the group must also reserve the Orchard Park pavilion.

  4. The amphitheater is available only during the same dates as the seasonal pavilion reservations (mid-April through mid-Oct.).

  7. The sale of any goods or services related to the performance must be specifically approved by CRPR in advance.
  8. CRPR may invoice the group for any special services provided by staff.
