Tickets to Go on Sale 9/7 for the Fabulous Fox Theatre's 2013-14 Season
Nine of the Fox Theatre's 2013-2014 U.S. Bank Broadway Series shows will go on sale Saturday, September 7 at 10am. From 10am to 2pm, the public is invited to view the newly restored auditorium ceiling and to enjoy free tours of the theatre.
The ceiling restoration project, which began on June 10, is the most massive project undertaken at the Fox Theatre since the original restoration in 1981. The project required the entire auditorium to be scaffolded from floor to ceiling to allow for a complete cleaning, touch up painting and fabric repair. "I am absolutely thrilled that my Fox partners and I were finally able to give the auditorium ceiling the proper restoration it deserves," says Mary Strauss. The open house on September 7 will allow visitors to see the stunning results of the ceiling restoration and to tour the theatre. Organ concerts will be performed from 10am to 2pm. Free popcorn and soda will be provided. Visitors will be able to register for ticket giveaways.
Tickets for the following shows will be available on Saturday, September 7 beginning at 10am: SISTER ACT, A CHRISTMAS CAROL, ELF, WEST SIDE STORY, MAMMA MIA!, WE WILL ROCK YOU, ONCE, JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT, and THE WIZARD OF OZ. Tickets will be available online at MetroTix.com, by phone at 314-534-1111 and in person at the Fox Theatre Box office. Please refer to FabulousFox.com for current pricing for individual shows.

A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, SISTER ACT is reason to rejoice!
