Tickets for The Pines Theater’s 2019 season, “A Season of Unlimited Talent, Passion and Showmanship,” go on sale next month, and Taylor Commiato, executive director of the Lufkin Convention and Visitors Bureau, is encouraging season ticketholders to secure their seats for a series of world-class performances that will appeal to music lovers of all ages.
“We have a great lineup of exciting new acts and old favorites,” Commiato said. “There’s something for everyone, and we hope every music lover in East Texas gets a chance to experience one of these moving performances in this beautiful community treasure.”
Most performances at The Pines sell out quickly, so Commiato recommends renewing or purchasing season tickets to guarantee a seat.
“Season tickets are the best way to make sure you have a seat at these popular performances,” Commiato said. “We always have a few individual tickets for each performance, and those individual tickets go on sale at the end of October.”
Beginning the week of October 8, season ticketholders who want to keep their seats will be able to renew their tickets. The week of October 15, season ticketholders who would like to change seats will be able to renew their tickets. The week of October 22, new season tickets will be available, and tickets to individual events will go on sale the week of October 29. To purchase tickets, visit www.thepineslufkin.com or call (936) 633-0349.
Season tickets are $190 for floor seats ($40 per show) and $160 for balcony seats ($35 per show). Tickets to individual events are $40 for floor seats and $35 for balcony seats, except for the Hot Club of Cowtown performance, which is $20 for floor seats and $15 for balcony seats.
