CULTURAL ARTS PRODUCTIONS SCHEDULE AND ADMISSION PRICES
RECOMMENDATION ticket prices increase.
Staff has also reviewed ticket prices for Moonlight Cultural Arts Programs. Staff recommends maintaining most current ticket prices, with one minor adjustment for the 2017 Moonligh Summer Season and an increase for the 2018 Moonlight Club M cabaret series. The previously approved price ranges for the Moonlight Live and Moonlight Variety series remains the same.
For the 2017 Moonlight Summer Season, staff recommends that adult general lawn ticket prices increase $2, from $15 to $17 on Wednesday, Thursdays and Sundays, and from $20 to $22 on Fridays and Saturdays. This price increase creates a more balanced progression of ticket prices between ticket levels, with $10 between general lawn and reserved lawn, $15 between reserved lawn and reserved, and $10 between reserved and orchestra seating. Estimated revenue from the proposed increase is $6,00 for the season.
Staff also recommends an increase for the 2018 Club M cabaret series from $80 to $85 per ticket. This price increase more accurately reflects the value of the programming for this continually sold out series and allows staff to contract with increasingly popular acts. Estimated revenue for this increase is approximately $600 per event or $3,600 for the series. FULL REPORT
