Memorial Opera House 2014 packages available for fans of live theatre

Back To Front Page

There is nothing worse than calling to order tickets only to be told an event is sold out or only single seats remain.

The staff of the historic Memorial Opera House in downtown Valparaiso have seen and heard the disappointment of theatre fans that waited too long or heard about a production too late to secure tickets.

From that came the idea to offer specially-priced 2014 Season Ticket Packages for the holiday gift-giving season as anticipation builds for the seven spectacular productions being presented over the next twelve months, which run the gamut from comedies, to musicals, to dramas.

“Anything Goes” (Feb. 21-March 9), “Company” (April 25-May 11), “The Glass Menagerie” (June 13-29), “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” (July 25-Aug. 10), “Prisoner of Second Avenue” (Sept. 12-28), “The Mystery of Edwin Drood” (Oct. 31-Nov. 16) and “Annie” (Dec. 5-21). All performances feature the actors of The Memorial Opera House and run at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. on Sundays.

“We have made it our personal mission to continue delivering quality entertainment at a reasonable price,” said Memorial Opera House business director, Michelle Smith. “We are now offering a fantastic deal this year that offers a 20 percent savings on the overall package price for our great 2014 season. Your purchase helps us preserve this National Historic Monument dedicated to spotlighting history, community, and the arts.”

Costs include the Adult Package $117, Senior Package $100, Student Package $100, Military Personnel Package $100.

Package Options: Series 1: First Friday, Series 2: First Saturday, Series 3: First Sunday, Series 4: Second Friday, Series 5: Second Saturday, Series 6: Second Sunday, Series 7: Third Friday, Series 8: Third Saturday, and Series 9: Third Sunday.
