Individual theater tickets now available

Thingamajig Theatre Company’s 2014-2015 season begins in less than a month. Starting today, individual tickets are available for purchase to all of the exciting shows offered over the next eight months.

As patrons are accustomed, tickets can be secured through the web or by calling the box office, but some changes have been made. Thingamajig Theatre Company and the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts have merged their ticket portals and moved to a new ticketing vendor.

Producing Artistic Director Tim Moore notes that this new vendor “ranks among the top five ticketing services in the country for customer satisfaction and has award-winning security features to ensure our patron’s information is safe and secure.”

“Misterman,” Thingamajig’s 2014-2015 season opener, features the voice work of Academy Award-winner Olympia Dukakis, stars Craig MacArthur and is directed by Melissa Firlit.

In “Misterman,” Thomas Magill (MacArthur) is a well-meaning evangelist who has an obsession with sin. Sifting through his memory, he repeatedly relives his searches for the heavenly peace that he might expect to come in his town of Innisfree. Frustrated by all around him, and on the day of the town’s community dance, Thomas decides to set off on a proselytizing tour of his neighbors. From the garage mechanic to Roger the dog, all could be saved if Thomas works hard enough. Lonely, mocked and often thwarted in his mission, Thomas’ zeal is re-charged when the angelic Edel offers to accompany him in his good works.

Irish Theatre Magazine called “Misterman,” “A very significant piece of theatermaking.”

The season continues with “Chaps! A Jingle Jangle Christmas” in December, “Lend Me a Tenor” playing January 2015, Pam Houston’s “Cowboys Are My Weakness” in February and “A Picasso” throughout May.

“As in past seasons, we’re offering our patrons another taste of many different theater pieces,” adds Moore. “There’s humor, great music, lots and lots of laughs, and, of course, pieces of significance that will provide great conversation long after the play is over.”

Join us for another fantastic season of professional theater, all located within the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts atop Put Hill. For information, please visit www.pagosacenter.org or call 731-SHOW (7469).
