•   Tickets for this performance are $10 each in advance, or $15 at the door. All proceeds go to the performer.
•   An advance ticket guarantees that you’ll get in if it sells out, and reserves you a chair. The transaction fee is rolled into the ticket price so the performer gets the full amount.
•   You can change the number of tickets after you click through to the next page.
•   A Paypal account is not required. There will be a link to proceed without one, but they make it small and tricksy.
•   Tickets at the door for this show will be $15. Chairs up front are saved (but not assigned) for advance ticket holders; any chairs still available on show day are first-come first-served for walk-ups.
•   If our 40 chairs all get reserved, advance ticket sales will automatically close.
•   Advance ticket sales will shut down at midnight the day before the show if it hasn’t sold out. Any remaining chairs are first come first served.
•   After completing, a “success” page should pop up and you should get an email from Paypal.
•   The name you give will be on a list at the door. All you have to do is show up. There are no physical tickets.
•   We won’t sell your info to anybody. We won’t even add you to our secret email newsletter coterie.
•   Questions? Drop us a line at stage33@stage33live.com or text/voicemail 802-289-0148. (Text is better.)
