The Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center (PAC) will begin selling both individual tickets and series subscription for the 2013-14 College of the Canyons Presents season, as well as all COC performing arts and community theatre productions, at 10 a.m. Monday, July 15.
The 2013-14 PAC schedule offers shows spread across four series selections: Chancellor’s Choice, World Beat, Comedy and the Young at Heart Series.
This season patrons can also create their own series through the PAC’s new ‘Mix & Match’ subscription program.
In addition, patrons will have multiple opportunities to mix and mingle with their favorite artists as part of the PAC’s meet-and-greet events, often held in support of the PAC K-12 Educational Outreach Program.
“This season is going to be so much fun,” said Evy Warshawski, PAC Executive Director. “Many of the groups visiting Santa Clarita will be on the PAC stage for the very first time, while others are back by popular demand.
“The variety and diversity included in this season showcases excellence on center stage,” added Warshawski, “and our special ‘meet-and-greet’ events will bring these talented performers even closer to our audiences.”
