KRT slashes 2008 tickets to $15

Rural theater makes professional productions even more accessible


HORSE CAVE — In an effort to make live theater productions more affordable, Kentucky Repertory Theatre at Horse Cave is reducing ticket prices for the 2008 season. Tickets for adults and seniors will be $15 and tickets for students and children will be $8.

“With gas prices rising, we want to make it easier for everyone to experience our wonderful 2008 plays,” said marketing director Libby Ellis.

These ticket prices will become effective immediately and any other discounts will not apply.

Opening Sept. 5 and running until Nov. 16 is the rib-tickling comedy “Cash on Delivery” by Michael Cooney. Also in production is the official Kentucky Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission presentation of “Abraham Lincoln” by John Drinkwater. This production, also sponsored by the Kentucky Arts Council, will run until Nov. 16.

Other season offerings include “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Christopher Sergel, “Amadeus” by Peter Shaffer, “King Lear” by William Shakespeare and “Christmas Belles” by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten.

“Holiday groups need to make sure to make reservations for our Christmas presentation early because tickets are selling fast,” Ellis added.
