Michigan Shakespeare Festival Announces Ticket Discounts
The Michigan Shakespeare Festival is offering a 5% discount on tickets for all regular performances purchased through December 31, 2013. The offer extends to a variety of ticket types, including Flex Passes, Senior, Student and Group Tickets. "We wish to say a thank you to all of our loyal patrons who purchase their tickets early in the season. An MSF Flex Pass includes one ticket to each production and allows patrons to purchase now, but gives them the flexibility to choose their seats at a later date, so you don't have to have commit to a specific performance to take advantage of this deal" stated Artistic Director Janice L. Blixt. The offer doesn't extend to preview performance tickets. To redeem the offer, patrons will need to call the Potter Center Ticket Office at 517-796-8600 and mention ticket code MSF20132014. For walk up orders, the Potter Center Ticket Office is open Monday - Friday, 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. and one hour prior to show time. The ticket office is located within the Potter Center at 2111 Emmons Road, Jackson MI 49201.
The 2014 Season will feature Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest and Shakespeare's Cymbeline. Regular performances are Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. with Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2:00 p.m. All three productions are run in repertory. All performances will be held at the Baughman Theatre, located in the Potter Center on the campus of Jackson College, 2111 Emmons Road, Jackson MI 49201.
