Season Subscriptions and Friends of the Theatre
The Minnesota State University, Mankato Department of Theatre & Dance has two season subscriptions available each year:
The Mainstage season is six productions presented during the academic school year (late September-April) and includes a big musical as the opening and closing shows, and four plays. Two of these plays are presented in the proscenium-style Ted Paul Theatre and two are presented in the flexible-seating Andreas Theatre. Season subscriptions are currently $85 (2010), with brochures mailed in mid-August and priority given to Friends of the Theatre—those who donate $100 or more to the department in a given year. A maximum of 4 subscriptions may be purchased using any Friends' priority status. Additional tickets for individual shows may be purchased with a season subscription. Individual ticket sales for ALL shows go on sale shortly after this priority period.
Our professional summer stock season, Highland Summer Theatre, has four productions between late May and late July. Again, we have two musicals staged in the Ted Paul Theatre and two plays staged in the Andreas Theatre. Season subscriptions are $60 (2011), with brochures mailed in mid-April and priority given to Friends of the Theatre—those who donate $100 or more to the department in a given year. A maximum of 4 subscriptions may be purchased using any Friends' priority status. Additional tickets for individual shows may be purchased with a season subscription. Individual tickets for ALL shows go on sale shortly after this priority period.

The Ted Paul Theatre has wheelchair accessible seating both at Row C (the level of the lower Performing Arts Center hallway) and at the last row of the seating (at either end of the aisle, accessible from the lobby). The location of wheelchair seating in the Andreas Theatre changes by configuration but always is in the first row of seating on the floor. Please note the need for wheelchair seating when purchasing your tickets.
Help Us by Recycling your show program
For each of its many performances, the MSU Department of Theatre & Dance is able to reduce costs through the generous recycling of playbills by our patrons. The small gesture of giving your "gently used" playbill back to an usher on your way out of the theatre allows us to order fewer and put the saved money back into the productions and scholarships. For that we thank you!
Don't Let Your Tickets Go Unused
We've got an even greater chance for you to help us by recycling. If you are a season ticket holder who is unable to use your ticket for a performance–or maybe you're lucky enough to be able to winter in a warmer climate–please pass along tickets you know you can't use to someone you feel would like the night out. Give them to a friend who might like to attend or, even better for us, find someone who has never attended an MSU Theatre & Dance production and let them enjoy themselves on you.
By turning them back to us, you can make sure your ticket is put to good use, improve the life of a friend and perhaps create a new theatre patron. But if you'd prefer, let us handle it for you. Return your tickets to the Box Office and we will make sure they are put to good use.
As always, you are welcome to exchange tickets for a performance as long as you do so at least 24 hours in advance and there are tickets available for the new performance. On those rare occasions when you can't, however, we'd encourage you to recycle.
