Company of Fools is proud to produce plays that reflect the beauty and complexity of our contemporary world; as such, our productions may contain adult themes, content, and language. If you have questions about the content of any of our shows, or if you are wondering about a play’s appropriateness for younger audiences, please contact the Box Office.
We are happy to provide you with any information to help you make an informed decision!
Any questions—please call us at 208-788-6520!
COF’s home base is the historic Liberty Theatre at 110 North Main Street in beautiful Hailey, Idaho.
You may pick up your tickets at COF’s box office at the Liberty Theatre (M-F, 10-4) or the Sun Valley Museum of Art in Ketchum during regular business hours (Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm, Saturdays in Feb & Mar, Jul & Aug, 11am-5pm) or one hour prior to curtain at the Liberty on the day of the performance. Tickets purchased via phone or online will be held at will call.
Street parking is available on both sides of Main Street near the theatre. You may also park on the side streets directly north and south of the theatre (Carbonate Street and Bullion Street). All street parking in Hailey is free.
If you need to exchange your tickets for a different performance date of the same show, please call our box office at 208-578-9122 and we’ll do our best to accommodate your request based on availability.
Sun Valley Museum of Art members and seniors receive discounts on tickets at Company of Fools. In addition, we offer several different programs to make theatre affordable for everyone: Pay What You Feel (the first night of every theatre production – not play readings), Educator’s’ Night, Group Rates (for 8 or more) and “10 for $10” (10 seats in the front row are sold for $10 each starting at one hour prior to curtain).
We do ask that you come wearing clothes and shoes, but beyond that, it’s really up to you! There’s usually a wide range of attire at our theatre, and at a given performance you may see people wearing anything from shirt and tie to jeans and cowboy boots.
The Liberty Theatre is fully wheelchair accessible and has an ADA compliant restroom. Front row and flexible seating is available upon request. Please call our box office with any special requests at 208-578-9122.
Most seasons, COF stages at least one production appropriate for children. Please take a moment to review our season on our website to see what is available for children. In general, we recommend children under age 3 do not attend any performance as COF does not allow babes in arms. All children must have a reserved seat.
Special Parent & Baby Performances (NEW for 2019 )
Beginning in the fall 2019, COF will offer a special Parent & Baby performance for each mainstage production. COF has created a special opportunity where parents can get out to see a play with their babies in tow! The theatre will be prepped and ready, with the house lights kept illuminated so that parents can keep an eye on their little ones. Baby changing station will be available in the restroom, and space will be set aside in the lobby where parents can retreat in the event that a little angel decides to turn into a little monster. Best of all, patrons can attend the show for a donation of their choosing, and babies get in for free! Please check the events calendar or contact us for more information at 208-578-9122.
If you have any questions about content, age-appropriateness or stage effects (such as strobe lights or theatrical fog) that might have a bearing on patron comfort, please contact the box office at 208-578-9122.
COF recently joined the Theatre Development Fund’s Autism-Friendly Theatre Network, the first theatre in Idaho to join the prestigious organization that advocates for accessible live performing arts experiences for patrons with a range of spectrum or sensory disorders. Beginning in the fall 2019, we will offer a “Sensory Friendly” performance for each mainstage production specifically designed for audience members with autism, spectrum disorders, or other sensory disorders. Please check the events calendar or contact us for more information at 208-578-9122. Special thanks to TDF’s National Autism-Friendly Performance Training Program for serving as an advisor.
A selection of beverages (bottled water, wine, beer, coffee, and tea) and snacks are available at our concessions counter. Food and beverage brought in from the outside is not allowed in the theatre. Cash or credit cards are accepted.
Yes! When you’re ready to order, just call our box office at 208-578-9122 and we’ll get you squared away. Gift certificates can be used for any Company of Fools/Sun Valley Museum of Art events.
es! Thanks to a group of generous donors, Company of Fools is now thrilled to be able to offer AudioFetch, an assistive listening application to empower anyone with a smartphone to hear what they are watching at the Liberty Theatre in real-time!
