Thank you for joining us for our encore production of
FIDDLER ON THE ROOF
at The Lyceum Theatre, Horton Plaza.


We first began producing shows at the Lyceum back in 1990, and we are thrilled to be back with our hit production of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF. The Theatre has easily accessible parking at Horton Plaza and is within walking distance of many great San Diego restaurants. Here’s some information to help with your planning:


DIRECTIONS


From 1-5 South

Take the Front Street/Civic Center exit. At the fork, go left onto Second Avenue. Go up two blocks and make a right onto Fourth Avenue. Continue to the intersection of F St. and 4th Ave. A right turn at F St takes you directly into the Horton Plaza parking garage.


From 163 South

Continue driving until the 163 ends and becomes 10th Avenue. Make a right on F Street and proceed about six blocks into the Horton Plaza garage


From 5 North

Take the 6th Ave exit. Go straight across 6th and the road becomes Elm Street. At 4th Ave turn left. Go about eleven blocks to the intersection of F and Fourth Avenue and turn right into the Horton Plaza garage.


In the garage you can usually find the most available parking in the “fruit” section.


PARKING AT HORTON PLAZA & PARKING VALIDATION


Parking in the Horton garage on the Fourth Avenue side, also known as the Vegetable Garage, is much closer to the Lyceum theatre than the Nordstrom end, known as the Fruit Garage. Make sure to only validate your parking ticket inside the lobby of the theatre. The theatre validates 4 hours of free parking. Elsewhere in the mall only validates for 3 hours, and once you have validated your ticket you will be unable to validate it again.


THE LYCEUM


The Lyceum is at the bottom of Horton Plaza in front of Broadway Circle. Take the steps around the multi-color obelisk down to the Theatre’s entrance on level T1. If you need ticketing help, you will find the Lamb’s Box Office Extension at the Lyceum to the right of the entrance doors.


There are two theatres in the Lyceum. FIDDLER is in the larger Lyceum Stage. On your tickets you will find a door entrance number. If you have Door 8 on your ticket, you are in the Orchestra Section and will enter through Door 8 on level T2. Door 2, 3 , 4 , 5 or 6 to the Mezzanine Sections enter through those doors on level T1.


LIMITED MOBILITY & WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBILITY


If stairs are an issue for you, please contact the box office for seating availability. If you have reserved a Wheelchair spot you will take the elevator to T2 where you will enter the Lyceum Stage.


ELEVATOR


There is an elevator whose theatre access is turned on one hour prior to each performance. The elevator is slow, and services all six levels of the mall, so plan accordingly. TI is the location of the Box Office and Mezzanine entrances. T2 services the lower floor where the Orchestra entrance is located.


RESTROOMS


There are restrooms on both levels T1 and T2, each with wheelchair access.

Please don’t hesitate to contact the LAMB’S Box Office at 619-437-6000 (Tues – Sat 1-7) if you have any additional questions.
