Create Your Own Experience

Are you familiar with our Create Your Own (CYO) package?  You can choose four or more events on our Performing Arts Season, getting up to a 15% savings on the tickets you purchase, lock in great seats, and secure access to Broadway events before individual tickets are on sale.  Becoming a CYO package buyer is a great way to treat yourself by setting some performance dates on the calendar and making sure you save room in your year for some great Performing Arts events.

Each year, I ask our staff to comment on the events they would choose if putting together their own CYO package.  Here are this year's responses:

Jen Tibbs
Jen Tibbs, Coordinator of Public Information and Marketing:

The Illusionsists
Beauty and the Beast

Of course The Cat in the Hat for my kids

Hey Jen - Of course, you don't *have* to limit yourself to four choices.  You can choose more!  It's part of the beauty of the CYO package.  Also, you can purchased different numbers of tickets for the shows in your package.  So you can get 2 tickets to The Illusionists and 4 for The Cat in the Hat.

Michelle Yenerall, Ticket Sales Assistant:

I am leaning towards most of the Broadway shows this season.

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast (saw it before when it was here and just loved it)
The Illusionists (Looks interesting)
Annie (Classic)
Maybe ELF (I liked the movie but I don’t know if I could sit through the musical)
The Chieftains (I want to take my dad to this)
Cameron Carpenter featuring the International Touring Organ (I just think this sounds interesting)

Hey Michelle - Taking a risk on something you're not entirely sure you'll like might feel better when you're getting a savings overall.  Another benefit to the CYO package! 

Shannon Smith
Shannon Smith, Ticket Office Manager:

The Met Opera – to see if I would like it…think I will but no real experience
Corky Siegel – I mean, it’s the blues, man
Lakota Sioux – beyond a shadow of a doubt, gonna be there
The Chieftains – of course
One extra maybe The Fab Four

Hey Shannon - Taking a risk is great and it's easier with a CYO package.  Also...of course you can pick more than four!  

Amy Zepp
Amy Zepp, Audience Development Coordinator:

Met Opera – I’ve never attended a live opera, and this seems like a good opportunity to get a sample of live opera performance.

Cameron Carpenter – A friend is getting her master’s in sacred music with an emphasis in organ performance, so she’s going to come with me.  I think his style and the variety of music genres will be fun, and I’ll also enjoy the reaction from someone who really understands organ music. 

Fifth House Ensemble – I want to experience a show that is truly interactive for the audience because we aren’t often able to present something like that.

Ragtime – It’s a classic show that I’ve never seen.

And from those who know exactly what they want, without need for comment:
