Discounted tickets and subscription packages are still available for spring
UI arts events
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The 2000-2001 performing arts season at the University
of Iowa is half completed, but discounted subscription packages are still
available for the Mainstage season of University Theatres, and volume discounts
are still available for Hancher Auditorium events.
University Theatres initially offered three-play and five-play packages,
and with three Mainstage productions remaining, the three-play packages may
still be purchased that offer discounts of 20 percent.
The remaining Mainstage productions are: the Midwest premiere of "Aloha,
Say the Pretty Girls" by Naomi Iizuka, Feb. 1-11; "Strange Attractors"
by Iowa Playwrights Workshop graduate student David Adjmi, Feb. 22 through
March 4; and Molieres "The Learned Ladies," March 29 through
Hancher ticket buyers may still take advantage of volume discounts by creating
their own custom series of three or more events. A simultaneous purchase of
three to five events qualifies for a 15-percent discount, and a simultaneous
purchase of six or more events qualifies for a 20-percent discount. UI students,
senior citizens and audience members 17 and younger also qualify for special
discounts to most events. Most winter-spring Hancher-sponsored events are
available for the volume discounts.
Tickets for University Theatres Mainstage productions and Hancher events
are available from the Hancher box office.
