Dear TUCK EVERLASTING Cast/Crew/Orchestra Families,
Please read the attached information carefully, as it details the process of our new online ticketing and box office system through ShowClix. We’ve been talking about making this move for the better part of 5 years now and have for some reason or another not followed through. With a new leadership team of directors and changes to the program, this seemed to be the logical time to make the switch. Note that the majority of the schools around us do the exact same thing with comparable pricing, though we opted to include all fees into the price of the ticket rather than passing them on to you at checkout. So, there is an increase in prices to account for this, though it’s been 11 years since the last increase so we see this price point staying where it is for quite some time! We’ve also accounted for giving the cast/crew/pit orchestra time to reserve their seats ahead of time just as we used to with the paper pre-sale. The difference is instead of turning in a form with a check and waiting for your orders to be filled and tickets sent home, you’ll log on, choose your seats, pay for them right then, and decide how you want them to be delivered. And we’ve figured out a way to offer a (modest) discount during the pre-sale period as well that was never offered in the past.
Hopefully the attached document will answer any questions you may have. We’ve been talking through this process for several months, trying to think of any possible situation that may arise, and think we’ve streamlined everything to make it as easy on all as possible.
Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you next month at the shows!
