Broadway In Scranton Open House at Masonic Temple

This week, for three days only, Broadway In Scranton moves its office location to the Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple (420 N. Washington Ave.).

From Tuesday, September 28 thru Thursday, September 30, Broadway In Scranton will be hosting an Open House at the Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple.

During these three days, guests can visit the Cultural Center and purchase new season tickets in-person.  From 8A – 4P the theatre will be open and Broadway In Scranton staff will be on-site to walk patrons through the historic theatre and show them available seating options.  Patrons will be able to “test-drive” the seat locations prior to choosing and purchasing their seat(s) for the upcoming 2021-2022 Broadway In Scranton season.

“An open house provides patrons a wonderful opportunity to try out all of the available seats to get the true in-person view of the stage from the seat location” said Tom Combs from NAC Entertainment.  Combs went on to note that Broadway In Scranton has hosted open houses in prior seasons, but this time it feels much bigger and different than past years. “Having been shut down since March of 2020, the excitement and anticipation of Broadway’s return to the Cultural Center this fall is at an all time high.  The demand for season tickets is extremely robust and we expect the strong season ticket sales to continue.”

The 2021-2022 season includes Waitress, Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, South Pacific, and Cats.  Season Tickets are priced at $175, $235, $275 and $315.

Along with the four season shows, Broadway In Scranton presents three (3) specials coming to the Cultural Center this season:

RAIN – A TRIBUTE TO THE BEATLES opens its 2021 Tour in Scranton on October 6, 2021. Tickets for RAIN are now on sale.

See the international percussion sensation STOMP January 12 – 13, 2022 and the smash hit phenomenon BLUE MAN GROUP May 18-19, 2022. As a benefit for subscribers, STOMP and BLUE MAN GROUP tickets can be purchased before public on sale.

Frank Blasi, Executive Director of Broadway Theatre League of NEPA stated that the return to Scranton has been widely anticipated by the entire community.  “Our presentation of Broadway tours brings a large and diverse audience from near and far, which has a major positive economic impact on the restaurants, hotels, parking garages, and retail stores in our community. After 18 months, the community cannot wait to see theatre returning and we look forward to welcoming them back to the Scranton Cultural Center with open arms.”
