The events of the past two years have given us the luxury of reviewing our subscriber packages and policies, as well as “best practices” afforded us by time and technology.
We are pleased to announce the following changes for subscribers in the upcoming season.
We are thrilled to bring you our newly built 380-seat theatre, located at the south end of our parking lot in the newly remodeled space of the old Fieldhouse. The new Meldrum Theatre at the Einar Nielsen Fieldhouse was funded through generous donations and will provide a more intimate experience for our smaller plays. You are invited to become a subscriber this season to ensure you will forever be recognized as a founding subscriber of this exquisite performance space.
Plays held at Meldrum Theatre will be part of our regular 7-Play and Pick 5 season subscriptions. Since the new theatre is smaller than Simmons Pioneer Memorial Theatre, we will have fewer seats available on a single ticket basis. In addition, since there will be no seating comparable to the balcony or loge, we will assign the best seats to 7-Play and Pick 5 subscribers, as subscribers renew, and make the remaining seats, if any, available after the renewal period. As usual, there is no reserved seating for Rush patrons and those subscribers may attend on a space-available basis.
Two Free Show Swaps
Seven Play season subscribers are entitled to two free “show swaps” per season. This can be for any reason or into any show (if swapping from a play to a musical, subscriber will need to pay the difference). Traveling during the holidays? Swap into a different production. Don’t care for the content? Swap into another.
This benefit is in addition to our free ticket exchange: Seven Play, Pick 5 and Pick 3 season subscribers are entitled to one ticket exchange per production (same production, different performance) with no exchange fee. Please request your exchange, honored on a space-available basis, at least 48 hours before your original performance time. Subsequent exchanges for the same production have a $5 fee per ticket.
Pick 3 Musical Subscription
For patrons whose preferences are musicals only, we introduce the Pick 3 Musical package that allows you to select tickets to any 3 of the 4 musicals we are producing this season, at a discounted price.
Additional Ticket Prices
We continue to offer exceptional pricing to season subscribers for additional tickets purchased above their subscription package. Pricing is based on the type package to which the patron is subscribed: 7-Play subscribers may purchase additional tickets at a 20% discount; Pick 5 and Pick 3 Musical subscribers receive a 10% discount.
Last Season for Upper Balcony Seating
The 2022-2023 season will be the last season for specific Upper Balcony (HH-NN) legacy pricing. With the opening of the new Meldrum Theatre, which has no balcony, we have limited availability and premium seating all around.
35 & Under and Senior Citizen Rates
We will continue the 50% discount on 35 & Under and Senior Citizen rates in 2022-2023 but will calculate that discount off full price tickets. This will help us maintain a significant discount in a rapidly growing population. The 35 & Under package applies to Monday through Thursday performances and the Senior Citizen package applies to Saturday Matinees.
Rush Pass Seating
In order to preserve a superior seating experience for patrons in light of our new, smaller theatre unveiling, we will still seat Rush patrons in best available seats, but the available seating will be in specific sections of the theatre designated for this purpose. The areas designated for Rush seating may change for each production; patrons will be assigned seating at the Rush window.
Flex Pass Has Been Eliminated
We have removed the Flex Pass as a subscriber option, but have added a Pick 3 Musical package as an option. We have also decided to provide an even greater discount on additional tickets for 7 Play subscribers so your discount per ticket is the same or even less depending on the number of tickets you purchase. This helps eliminate passes that don’t get fully used and allows you earlier choice in selecting tickets at the time of renewal!
Last Season for 7 Play Voucher
In 2022-2023 season, 7 Play season subscribers will continue to receive a voucher for one free ticket for each subscription purchased and that voucher may be used only for the plays specified. With the launch of Meldrum Theatre, we will be discontinuing the voucher as a subscriber benefit in subsequent years. In its place, we have reduced the price for additional tickets for subscribers, which we feel is of even greater benefit for those who share their love of theatre with friends and family.
Plays Have One Price
Plays will now be the same price Monday through Saturday, instead of a higher price on Fridays and Saturdays. This streamlines our ticketing, and you can attend any performance without considering a higher or lower ticket price.
