Think of it as a holiday gift basket full of laughs. The Western Nevada Musical Theatre Company is opening sales for its Spotlight on Broadway 2007 season tickets, offering holiday shoppers economical season ticket packages for a year of great entertainment. Slated for 2007:
"You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown," the musical animation of Charles Shultz' lovable comic strip, plays in Western Nevada Community College's newly-renovated Sarah Winnemucca Hall, weekends, March 30-April 8.
"Thoroughly Modern Millie," 2002 winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical Revival, comes to the Carson City Community Center weekends, May 11-20. This high-spirited story of a young girl trying to make it in New York in the Roaring '20s is full of comedy, romance and sparkling production numbers.
The season closes in November with the Broadway favorite, "Guys and Dolls." When crafty Nathan Detroit needs to raise money for his floating crap game, he bets high-roller Sky Masterson that he can't woo a beautiful missionary girl. Bets turn to romance with what critics call a perfect musical comedy score: "Luck Be A Lady," "Sit Down, You're Rockin' The Boat," and more. The production plays at the Carson City Community Center weekends, November 3-18.
Season ticket packages start as low as $36 to $45 for those who can commit to show dates when they buy tickets (Pick-a-Color tickets). Prices for those who prefer to reserve their performance date two weeks before the show range from $39 to $48.
Season ticket-holders come from California and Nevada, including Reno, Minden, Gardnerville, Carson City, Wellington, Fallon, Penn Valley and Susanville. Some travel from as far away as San Jose, according to WNMTC Producer and Artistic Director Stephanie Arrigotti.
"We have people who initially came on tour buses from the Bay Area to see our shows, then chose to buy season tickets for themselves and their friends, and drive up on their own," she said.
Ticket sales for the company have been strong, despite a national downward trend in theatre subscriptions. "We keep prices low to make the shows affordable for our audiences, but work hard to keep the quality high," added Arrigotti. "Our season ticket holders also enjoy the benefit of getting first pick of seats when we open the house. They are important to us, and we do what we can to let them know that."
Tickets may be purchased by phone or in person at the WNCC Performing Arts Office, 2201 West College Parkway, 775-445-4249.
