Bergen Performing Arts Center
There are two accessible parking spots on the street on the same side as the theatre, unfortunately they aren’t just reserved for the theatre so sometimes it’s difficult to claim them.
Leading to the orchestra, there are no stairs whatsoever. However, the matinee and balcony do not have an elevator and are only accessible by stairs at this time - so those who cannot walk up stairs must sit in the orchestra. If you accidentally purchase an upstairs ticket, speak to a house manager upon arrival and they will help you find an accessible floor seat.
There are two total spots for wheelchairs in the last row of the theatre (Row DD) on either the right or left (one on each side). It is an open space where you can sit in the wheelchair and there is a companion seat beside it. There are also limited mobility seats on both the right and left in rows E, P, and Z - the sides of the aisle seat flip up so that you can easily transfer into the seat. It is a small theatre so the view is still great from any of those seats despite them being towards the side of the theatre.
Unfortunately the mezzanine and balcony are not accessible - there is no elevator and you can only get there by the stairs.
Yes, this is the limited mobility seating in rows E, P and Z
