Discounted tickets and subscription packages are still available for spring UI arts events

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The 2000-2001 performing arts season at the University of Iowa is half completed, but discounted subscription packages are still available for the Mainstage season of University Theatres, and volume discounts are still available for Hancher Auditorium events.

University Theatres initially offered three-play and five-play packages, and with three Mainstage productions remaining, the three-play packages may still be purchased that offer discounts of 20 percent.

The remaining Mainstage productions are: the Midwest premiere of "Aloha, Say the Pretty Girls" by Naomi Iizuka, Feb. 1-11; "Strange Attractors" by Iowa Playwrights Workshop graduate student David Adjmi, Feb. 22 through March 4; and Moliere’s "The Learned Ladies," March 29 through April 8.

Hancher ticket buyers may still take advantage of volume discounts by creating their own custom series of three or more events. A simultaneous purchase of three to five events qualifies for a 15-percent discount, and a simultaneous purchase of six or more events qualifies for a 20-percent discount. UI students, senior citizens and audience members 17 and younger also qualify for special discounts to most events. Most winter-spring Hancher-sponsored events are available for the volume discounts.

Tickets for University Theatres Mainstage productions and Hancher events are available from the Hancher box office.
