Festival Ballet Theatre Sets new Box-Office Record for Barclay TheatreOpens New Studio in Irvine
Posted 06 January 2010 - 12:19 PM
I just wanted to let anyone interested, that Southland Ballet Academy, which is the school associated with Festival Ballet Theatre, has just opened a second studio for those students wishing to attend Southland but the commute makes it inconvenient to do so. Is is a really gorgeous new facility as can be seen by the photos at the website.

Am I missing something in the on-line ordering? Or is this just open seating?
Also, they show a different price for students and seniors -- but never define "senior." Is it 60? 62? 65? 65+?
Thanks for any insight you can give me on this.

It's nice to find someone in the same neck of the woods. I'm also looking forward to seeing Don Q with Gillian Murphy and Marcelo Gomes!
I agree, the Barclay's online ordering is a problem to me also. If you order online, they just assign you the best available ticket, according to whatever methods they use to determine the best seating at any given time. That has caused me to actually drive over to the Barclay's box office whenever I want tickets so that I can see what I'm getting. They have free parking spots at UC Irvine that are reserved for the box office sales outside the Barclay, which makes it easy to do. You just have to call for directions.
I realize that I could probably call on the telephone to the box office and discuss the seats with them while looking at the online seating chart and order them that way, however, since my daughter has ballet class over in that direction I usually just drive by.
I'm pretty sure the senior tickets start for those aged sixty and over, but you could discuss that with them via the telephone. (It does seems strange that they don't specify the age when you order the tickets).
