Theatre patrons, including students, faculty and staff, can now order tickets online for all William Woods University theatre productions.
"We have updated our ticketing system for the convenience of our patrons," Joe Potter, artistic director of theatre, said.
To use the online ordering system, go to williamwoods.edu/academics/art.asp. Click on the box that says “WWU Theatre Box Office” and follow the instructions. Payment can be made by credit or debit card. Ticket orders must be completed within a 10-minute time limit.
"As a department, we felt it was necessary to move into the 21st century with the online ticketing system,” Michael J. Dodson, graduate assistant in theatre, said. “This allowed us to add credit/debit card payment options. With technology advancing every day, it only makes sense to bring the box office to patrons who can purchase tickets from the comfort and convenience of their own home."
According to Dodson, having the box office online is a more convenient way to order tickets, but they can still be reserved by calling the box office at (573) 592-4267 and picking them up the night of the performance. Payment at the door can be by check, cash or credit/debit card.
This season offers something for everyone – “The Drowsy Chaperone” (musical comedy), “Amadeus” (drama), “The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940” (comedy), and “Our Town” (classical drama).
Patrons who buy season tickets basically get to see all four shows for the price of three. That’s a savings of 20 percent. To buy season tickets, call Joe Potter at 592-4281. Reservations will be made via the box office staff as in the past.
Season ticket prices are $40 for adults, $29 for WWU faculty/staff/students, $34 for senior citizens (62+) and $22 for children (6-12). Season tickets are on sale until the last performance of the Drowsy Chaperone.
The Drowsy Chaperone opens Thursday, Oct. 6, and runs Oct 6, 7 and 8 at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee on Sunday, Oct. 9, at 2 p.m. in Cutlip Auditorium. Single ticket prices for “The Drowsy Chaperone” are $14 for adults, $12 for WWU faculty/staff/students, $12 for senior citizens (62+) and $10 for children (6-12).
