A Message to our subscribers from Artistic / Executive Director Jacqui Hubbard…
2016 is a big year for me – it will be my 25th year as part of the Ivoryton Playhouse. I began as a young mother in 1991, producing children’s theatre and serving on the board of trustees and I don’t think a day has gone by since then when I have not spent time caring for this beautiful old theatre. It is part of my family now and with it, all of the subscribers that make great theatre possible. We could not do it without our subscribers and we value your support more than you know. Your subscription money helps us to secure talent and production rights in advance to insure we have the best season possible, not only for you but for all the non-profit communities with whom we are able to partner. 2015 was an amazing year for us – more block buster shows and more sold out performances than ever before.
We have big plans for 2016 – just take a look at our season, isn’t it fantastic? Of course, bringing shows of this caliber to Ivoryton costs a lot of money so we will have to increase single ticket prices – but we are maintaining our subscription prices. We owe our success to our loyal subscribers and we are so grateful for the faith you put in us each year.
We know that there are many places for you to choose to spend your time and money and we are so grateful that you choose to spend it in Ivoryton. Thank you for helping to keep award winning, professional theatre alive and well on the Connecticut Shoreline.
As a special “thank you” to everyone who purchases a 7 play subscription, we will include a gift certificate for a ticket to the 2016 Holiday Show in December – a $64 value.
When you subscribe with a 7 and 5 play series, you are guaranteed a seat to our entire season. No waiting in line, no disappointment when shows are sold-out.
Priority Seating: Our 7 and 5 play subscribers have first choice on best available seating and you can keep them year after year.
3 play passes are also available. Please call 860.767.9520 for information.
Ticket Insurance: Receive protection against lost or stolen tickets.
