After the June 20 live event, several people either spoke to me in person, emailed or called me to express their concern or confusion about ticket pricing. Their concern is one I shared and I’ve worked to eliminate this confusion. Tickets, since we began selling them, have traditionally been priced affordably at $8 in advance and $10 the day of the show.
Selling tickets in advance requires service charges. There is no way around this.
The service provider who prints the tickets needs to get paid for their service ($1 to Ticketfly) and the seller needs to be paid for the work required to sell the tickets ($1 to either Logjam Presents or Rockin’ Rudy’s). Even buying tickets online involves person hours putting the event page in place and marketing to bring awareness to the availability of tickets.
Some attendees were surprised by the $2 fee when they came to the venue to purchase tickets the day of the show. I understand this.
In order to provide as much transparency as possible, I’ve worked with Logjam Presents and we have agreed to build in the service charge into the advertised price of tickets for the September 10th Tell Us Something live event.
Tickets for the Sunday, September 10th Tell Us Something event are affordable at $10 in advance, including service fees, and $12 day of the show, including service fees.
The theme for the September 10th live event, which is presented in conjunction with In the Footsteps of Norman Maclean, is “Up the Blackfoot”.
Tickets are on sale now at the Top Hat box office, online at thewilma.com and at Rockin’ Rudy’s.
As always, I welcome feedback and comments as I work to bring live storytelling to our community.
Your story matters.
