“Purchasing a subscription to your favorite Public Appearances series makes perfect sense because  your seats are always reserved for you, you save about 25 percent off of the regular ticket price, and you have a chance to purchase single tickets before they go on sale to the general public,” said Catherine Marhenke, marketing and development director for Public Appearances. “The week of Aug. 8-12 is Subscriber Courtesy Week. Patrons who have a subscription to any Public Appearances series can purchase single tickets that week. Single tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday, Aug. 15.”
