CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., June 7, 2011 — Season tickets sales open to the public June 8 for the 2011-2012 season at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus.

“We are urging people to order their season tickets by

July 8 to receive their first choice of seats,” said Box Office Manager Ellen Farrow.  “There are many performances scheduled for 2011-2012, broken down into multiple series.  Right now we are accepting season ticket orders only for the Symphony, Touring, and Theatre/Dance Series – or for a Master Series consisting of all three.”

With so many choices, it is important for subscribers to understand the process. “We are taking seating preferences in the order in which requests are received,” said Farrow, “but no seats will be officially assigned until season ticket sales end July 8.

“Season ticket holders can retain their seat location from year to year, with the option to move to better seats when available,” Farrow added. “They also receive top seating priority for special events. The majority of our season ticket holders are renewing, so we urge everyone to order as soon as possible.”
