Historic Egyptian Theatre Shifts Season Cycle and Lowers Prices


The Egyptian Theatre is making changes--the theatre has reduced its prices, revamped it season ticket options and is shifting its annual season cycle to start at the beginning of the summer rather than in January as it has been in the past.

The shift will kick off the season with the June production currently slotted to be Altar Boyz. In the past, the season cycle began in January and would be completed in December. The shift is intended to prevent the momentum lost with the sluggish three month gap between the Feb/March show and the June/July show. Egyptian Theatre Artistic Director, Terence Goodman said that the season shift will allow momentum to be built up throughout the season and wrap up with the end of the ski season.

Patrons will also see a change in ticketing; the Egyptian Theatre will now have three differently priced ticketing sections. The sections will divide the theatre into back half, front half and Cabaret Tables (when available). The change in ticketing sections also comes with an overall reduction in ticket prices. The Egyptian staff recognized the struggling economy and wanted to help people continue to be able to attend theatre. “Historically, attending theatre has always helped the public forget their problems during hard times. This theatre is part of the Park City community and we’re lowering our ticket prices to help make it easier for the community to continue to attend the theatre during this economic downturn.” said Goodman, “Our new season is lighthearted and full of fun. Attending a show this season is a going to be a great getaway!”

The Egyptian Theatre’s new 2008-2009 season has 4 shows including the Utah Premiere of Altar Boyz, the long awaited return of Pageant, the timeless classic The Music Man and the hilarious Grecian musical, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum wrapping up the season!
