May 30, 2018 – SFSC announced subscription ticket packages are available for the Artist and Matinee Series performances for the 2018-2019 season. Subscription packages offer big discounts on tickets, and seats are available in the best sections in the house before the general public.  

“The Artist Series is a bargain and the theater is so close to home,” said Ann Pollard, a long-time Artist Series subscriber. “We don’t have to drive to the coast and stay in a hotel when we want to see a show. We never have to wait in line for our tickets, and we never miss a sold-out show. Plus, we get invited to VIP receptions and events.”

Tom Meisenheimer, another subscriber, said, “My wife Pat and I are season subscribers because the shows are terrific with a good mix of artists and varied performances. We like the 15 percent discount for additional tickets which allows subscribers like us to treat our visiting snowbird friends to a show. It also feels good to make our yearly gift to support the fine arts at such a wonderful college.”

“To celebrate our 35th season, we’ve got something for everyone,” said Cindy Garren, director of cultural programs at SFSC. “Celebrities, comedy, Broadway, orchestras, Christian music, and country superstars—subscribers can save more than $100 by buying a series package.”

The 10-show Artist Series includes: John Tesh, Christmas Wonderland Spectacular, Evita, The Doo Wop Project, Jon Secada, Florida Orchestra, Wayne Newton, “The Sound of Music,” “Legally Blonde,” and Sandy Patti. All performances begin at 7 p.m. in the Alan Jay Wildstein Center for the Performing Arts. Subscription packages are $385 for gold circle tickets; $338 for silver section seating; and $298 for bronze seats. “With a bronze package, you can see a show for less than $30 and that is the best deal in Florida,” remarked Garren.

The 10-show Matinee Series, which begins in January includes: Let’s Hang On, a Frankie Valli tribute; Simon and Garfunkel Re-visited; Dueling Pianos; Phil Dirt and The Dozers; Divas 3; Alter Eagles, an Eagles tribute; Nashville Legacy with Jason Coleman; “My Mother’s Italian, My Father is Jewish and I’m in Therapy;” Violinist Doug Cameron and Family; and the University of Florida Concert Choir. All performances begin at 1:30 p.m. in the Alan Jay Wildstein Center for the Performing Arts.
