Calvin's News
Early Entry and Table Reservations information [12/8/14]
With the new ticketing system, we have implemented some changes in the way you request both table reservations and early entry privileges. When you select your ticket quantities on the Simpletix page, you also have the opportunity to select add-on "tickets" for both early entry and table seats. So if you want either early entry or to reserve a table, you specify quantities for both the regular tickets AND ALSO for the free add-on passes. Items in both categories are limited to the first thirty people who claim them. After those thirty are gone, you will no longer be able to select them. Also note for those of you wanting tables, you must purchase either 6 or 8 tickets AND 6 or 8 table add-on passes. If you find that all or part of the table passes are gone, then either continue your transaction without the table, or cancel out altogether. Finally note that Early Entry and Table Seat passes are mutually exclusive - no need to order both.
Our brand new website is live! [12/7/14]
Scroll down on this page for lots more detail and some policy changes as well.
Our new pricing model with additional targeted discounts [12/7/14]
In order to make our musical offerings more affordable to specific groups of people, we have decided to offer special discounts to seniors (65+), young adults (18-25), and students of any age with a current student id. Students will receive the same 50% discount as our youth audience does today, while the other two age-based groups will receive approximately 25% off the usual price. We hope you like it!
Our new ticketing partner, SimpleTix [12/7/14]
You will see that we have decided to outsource our ticketing processes to a 3rd party vendor, SimpleTix. When you click on a Buy Tickets link on the Uncle Calvins site, you will be taken to a page within the SimpleTix application, where you choose and pay for your tickets. We still have Paypal as one of our options for paying for your tickets, but we are also adding another credit card partner who promises better rates and faster service. We are adding a very modest handling fee of $0.50 per ticket to help cover the addtional expense of the SimpleTix service itself. Give us your feedback, we hope you like it! Also check out our new pricing model - more information to follow.
