With such a wide variety of world-class entertainment, the possibilities to create the perfect customized series are endless. Titles in the series are slated for March-June 2012. Prices are as low as $24 per ticket, and by packaging three shows or more into a custom series, patrons will save even more.

A minimum of three performances are required for savings in the Design Your Own series. Three shows will result in a 5% total discount, five shows in a 7% total discount and seven shows in a 15% discount. Series ticket prices are dependent upon seat location. Individual tickets are set to go on sale for titles in the series in November of 2011.
