Do you have a seating chart?

At the Alhambra Theatre, there's not a bad seat in the house.

Our tables are positioned around the stage, so all of our guests have an up-close and intimate theater experience. The farthest table is only 75 feet away. Coupled with our state-of-the-art sound and lighting system, you'll always feel like you're part of the action.

What accessibility options does the Alhambra Theatre offer?

The Alhambra's entry and exit are entirely accessible by wheelchair, and we have several tables for people who use a wheelchair. To book these tables, please call the Box Office at (904) 641-1212.

We also offer special hearing devices upon request. These headsets are available at no charge but are limited in quantity. Please call the Box Office at (904) 641-1212 in advance of your reservation to request a headset.


Typically, our shows are about two hours long. However, this can vary based show format, audience participation, and comedic timing. Please call the Box Office at (904) 641-1212 for the approximate run-time of the current show.

What is the dress code?

Attending a show at the Alhambra Theatre is an occasion to get dressed up.

We would describe our dress code as smart casual. Sports jackets are encouraged, but ties are not required. We ask that you, please refrain from wearing overly-casual attire such as jeans, t-shirts, and flip-flops.

Is there a bar or somewhere to relax before a show?

Get an early start on the fun in our rustic themed Library Lounge. Reminiscent of a Carolina mountain lodge, in our library you’ll find cozy seating, a roaring fireplace, and a fully stocked bar filled with your favorite libations.

Come in before the show for a great drink and delightful conversation or stay after for a chance to meet the cast.

Can you tell me about the food experience at the Alhambra?

Executive Chef DeJuan Roy, the former Executive Chef of 95 Cordova, creates a new menu for each production to highlight each show’s unique story and theme. If you visited our theater before 2009, you’d be happy to know that we have retired the buffet and replaced it with an improved three-course offering.

Each meal is served at your table and made to enhance your theater & dining experience. Upon arrival, you will be seated and promptly greeted by your server who will then take each of your course requests, much like a restaurant!

Within our kitchen, we can craft specialty dishes for those with special dietary needs and cook tailored options for events hosted at the Alhambra Theatre. For those with special food requests, we ask for at least 48 hours notice prior to your reservation. Requests can be made through the box office.

How much should I tip?

Suggested Tipping Guide

At the Alhambra Theatre & Dining, your ticket price includes the cost of your meal. However, it does not include the tip. Like any restaurant, gratuities are an excellent way for you to acknowledge the service you received and should reflect your level of satisfaction.


  • 18% – $6.30 per person (meal only)
  • 20% – $7.00 per person (meal only)
  • 25% – $8.75 per person (meal only)

We based the percentages listed above on the food portion of a regular-season ticket, which is approximately $35 per person. If you enjoy a premium drink, such as a bottle of wine or soda, you will receive a separate bill for beverages.


The “Alhambra Dinner Theatre” is now “Alhambra Theatre & Dining.”

Why is the name different?

In Jacksonville, the Alhambra name has been synonymous with exceptional live theater for over 50 years. We are known for our high-quality performances, and thus “theatre” has taken a more prominent place in our name. That is not to say that the meal is getting secondary attention.

We believe that the show inspired fare prepared by Executive Chef DeJuan Roy enhances your overall experience. Visit our dining page to learn more and to view our current show menu.

How do I audition for an upcoming show?

The creative folks at our theater are always looking for budding talent to perform at the Alhambra. Please visit the Casting and Employment page for information about upcoming auditions.

What are your ticket policies?

To enhance your experience at Alhambra Theatre & Dining, we have fully outlined our policies on the theater policies page.

By purchasing a ticket and attending a show, you agree to accept and adhere to the policies laid out on that page for the benefit of all guests and employees.
