Parking & Entrance

Please feel free to park at the Erie Parking Authority Lot B north of the Warner if it is open. We also have secured the ERIE Insurance lot across from the Erie Insurance Arena.


  • All volunteers, except for tech and creative teams (use main backstage doors), must use the designated volunteer entrance on 9th Street. There will be a security check at this door where you will show your CATW lanyard or this email to get in. Only volunteers who have preregistered will be permitted to enter the Warner early. All other attendees must wait until the main doors open to the public one hour ahead.

Volunteer Central

You will find Volunteer Central on the third floor in the new addition of the theater. Head straight up the stairs after you show your credentials (there is an elevator around the corner if needed). Please make this your first stop so we can officially check you in.
