Tickets for students to attend various performing arts events around campus will be even cheaper on August 30, as students can save an extra 15 percent on already-discounted tickets, thanks to a grant from the University Park Student Fee Board.

The performances, that take place in Eisenhower and Schwab auditoriums, include jazz, musical theater, world music, dance troupes, and classical ensembles.

“We enthusiastically welcome Penn State students to the center’s performances and are excited that, on average, one-third of our audiences are students,” center director George Trudeau said in a release. “We’re pleased to be able to provide students tickets for most presentations for the very reasonable price of $15. Broadway show ticket prices are negotiated with the producers, so we don’t have as much flexibility, but we are still pleased that Penn State students receive the best prices for Broadway and all CPA presentations.”

Discounted performances include a concert featuring cellist Yo-Yo Ma and pianist Kathryn Stott, discounted to $61.20 and $52.70, respectively.

Penn State University Park students must show a valid Penn State ID on Wednesday, August 30 to receive the discounts and each student may buy one discounted ticket per event. Students can purchase tickets on that day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Eisenhower Auditorium.

More information and a full list of events are available at the Center for the Performing Arts website.
