Due to the large renewal rate of our subscribers, at this time new subscriptions are only available in Knight Stage 3 and will go on-sale Tuesday, May 7, 2013.
The Knight Stage 3 seating package will get you a seat in the Knight Stage 3 Theater inside the Lesher Center, downstairs from the Hofmann Theatre, where the lectures take place. All programs will be broadcast live in the Knight Theatre, where subscribers will have dedicated ushers, and the same opportunity to submit questions as the Hofmann audience. Knight subscribers will also have the first opportunity to upgrade for seating in the Hofmann Theatre the following Newsmakers season.
A limited number of Knight seating packages will be made available for just $180. It's a great way to get involved with Newsmakers and be a part of the discourse. If there happens to be any remaining Hofmann Theatre subscriptions, they will also go on sale to the public at that time at the Lesher Center Ticket Office (1601 Civic Drive in Walnut Creek).
Tickets are sold by series only (Hofmann Package: $413 premier main floor, $406 general main floor, and $315 balcony; Knight Stage 3 Package: $180). The box office opens at 11:00 AM and phone sales begin at noon by calling 925.943.SHOW.
If you have extra tickets throughout the season, please return them to the ticket office and you will receive a tax deduction receipt.
If any extra tickets are available for the event, they will be available at the ticket office at 6:30 p.m. the day of the event. Hofmann Theatre tickets are $75/each and Knight Stage 3 simulcast tickets are $40/each.
