New ticket policy at Fayette Opera House 2012.09.05

Written by David Green.

The Fayette Arts Council has announced changes to its ticket policy for the 2012-13 Opera House performance season.

This year, while both artist series retain their autonomy, a single “Passport Season Pass” will be honored at the Opera House Box Office for programs in both the Fayette Artist and Glasgow Reed Organ Series.

The Arts Council retired the “Family Pass” in favor of the more flexible Fayette Opera House Passport Season Pass. Passport 2012-13 ticket holders may choose to purchase a three program, five program, or an eight program series pass for the programs offered at Fayette’s historic Opera House.

The new pass offers greater flexibility to patrons whose busy schedules may prevent them from enjoying all eight concert opportunities. It also gives season series ticket holders the opportunity to blend programs from each series into an entertainment package that suits their specific tastes.  In addition, the new pass also offers value and savings of 20 percent or more over the cost of general admission tickets at the box office door.

General admission tickets for the 2012-13 programs will cost $12 at the door for adults (age 22-59) and $10 for Senior Citizens (age 60 and over) and students (age 13-22). Children age 12 and under will be admitted free when accompanied by an adult ticket or pass holder.

Tickets may be purchased for groups of 15 or more by calling the box office.

For season pass information or information about any of the activities sponsored by the Fayette Arts Council, call 419/237-3111 and leave a message, or speak with any Fayette Arts Council member.

    A PERFORMER named Biligbaatar, a member of the AnDa Union troupe from Inner Mongolia, dances at Stair District Library last week during a visit to the Midwest. The nine-member group blends a variety of traditions from Inner and Outer Mongolia. The music is described as drawing from “all the Mongol tribes that Genghis Khan unified.” The group considers itself music gatherers whose goal is to preserve traditional sounds of Mongolia. Biligbaatar grew up among traditional herders who live in yurts. Additional photos are on the back page of this week’s Observer.

    UMPIRE Thomas Henthorn tosses the bat between team captains Mikayla Price and Chuck Piskoti of Flint’s Lumber City Base Ball Club. Following the 1860 rules, after the bat was grabbed by the captains, captains’ hands advanced to the top of the bat—one hand on top of the other. The captain whose hand ended up on top decided who would bat first. Additional photos of Sunday’s game appear on page 12 of this week’s Observer. The contest was organized in conjunction with Stair District Library’s Hometown Teams exhibit that runs through Nov. 20.
