The running time of performances is approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes with no intermission. Proof of ticket purchase on paper or smart phone device is required for admittance.

Through last year's previews of the development work for Beauty Will Save the World, 9th Hour raised around $1,000 for the Canadian charity Restoring Hope which has a mission "to love and serve the youth and young adults in the Ottawa area who are experiencing homelessness, are marginalized and/or are exploited." They accomplish this by "providing physical, spiritual, emotional and mental support and by addressing specific problems faced by these youth so that they may discover their talents, their potential and their worth." 9th Hour wants to bring further awareness and support for the important work of this local charity in the nation's capital by asking patrons to "tip the show" after each performance in July. Donations can also be made online through Canada Helps.
In the event of cancellation due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances, an announcement will be made the day of the performance by 9th Hour on social media. The box office will email ticket holders of the cancelled performance and issue them a credit voucher, which they can use for a later performance of the show.
