TheatreZone Announces Second Saturday Matinee for 2017-18 Shows

TheatreZone announces that, to meet increasing demand, it has added a second Saturday matinee to its 2017-18 shows schedule. These performances will take place on the first Saturday of each show's run, increasing total performances of a show from 11 to 12.

"We are grateful that our theater is so popular that we typically sell out," says Founding Artistic Director Mark Danni. "Going into our 13th season, we realized that one way we could reach more theater lovers was to add another matinee. Because our performers are professional actors and singers, we know they can handle six shows each week. We look forward to welcoming current and new patrons through this expanded schedule."

TheatreZone is located in the G&L Theatre on the Community School of Naples campus, 13275 Livingston Road, Naples, Florida. Show tickets range from $50 to $75. A concert series, to be announced at a later date, has separate pricing.

Season tickets are on sale now. Individual tickets will go on sale May 1.

Tickets may be purchased online at theatrezone-florida.com or by calling the Box Office at 888-966-3352.

The on-site Box Office is open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesdays through June 13. It will reopen on Sept. 12 and be open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
