Tickets for plays and musical performances at the Johnson Theater now are available online, making it more convenient to take in the great entertainment that is produced there.
Tickets are sold through the MUB box office or at the door. But now, patrons can go online, view the seating chart, and make their selection. A previously used online service didn’t offer the same efficiency as the new system, says Mary DeTurk of the UNH Celebrity Series.
“Now, people can buy tickets in real time,” DeTurk says. “All of the tickets sold through the MUB can now be bought online—for the Celebrity Series, a play or dance or concert. It’s so easy. ”
Previously, tickets could be bought at the MUB box office only when UNH was in session. Patrons had to wait until late August to begin purchasing tickets for the upcoming season.
Purchasers can have their tickets mailed or they can be picked up at the box office window. There is a $1.50 processing charge per ticket for tickets bought online and a delivery fee of $2.50 per order for pick up or $3 per order for mailing.
“People call all time looking to get tickets. This will make a big difference,” DeTurk says. “Instead of just being able to get tickets a few days in advance, people can now order them as early as they want.”
The fall schedule includes:
The Winter’s Tale, a classic William Shakespeare comedy of love and betrayal, runs Nov. 5 through Nov. 9. King Leontes of Sicily has loyal friends, a gracious queen, an adoring son and a child on the way. Yet in a sudden fit of jealousy, drives his family and country to the brink of ruin. Thus begins his long journey through destruction to forgiveness. David Richman, professor of theater and dance, and acting coordinator for the humanities program, directs.
Don’t miss I C NO ARRLECHINO, created and directed byDavid Kaye, associate professor of theatre and dance, and director of acting and directing.
