Event seasons are ending…

Time is running out — as the Mondavi Center, the Department of Theatre and Dance and the Department of Music seasons come to a close, so does the curtain on the opportunity for your free ticket to any show.

All first-year students, whether undergraduate, graduate students or transfer students, are given the opportunity to redeem one free ticket to any event during their first year at UC Davis. This deal only applies to Mondavi Center Presents, Department of Theatre and Dance or Department of Music events.

As soon as students are registered for their first quarter of classes, they become eligible to redeem their free ticket.

“There are only a few events left for the season, so don’t miss out on using this use-it-or-lose-it ticket,” said Mondavi’s Public Relations Coordinator Amanda Caraway. Tickets can be reserved either by phone or in person at the ticket office.

In addition to this first-year deal, all UC Davis students save 50% on tickets for Mondavi Center Presents events. These are not to be mistaken for shows such as Florence + The Machine, though, as the Mondavi Center also serves as an entertainment venue rented out by outside groups.

To further make entertainment and tickets more accessible for students, the Mondavi Center sets aside a number of tickets for each show to be purchased before the show is sold publicly.

“We have ‘on-sale’ days before every season and ‘just-added’ shows,” Caraway said. “For two to three days, we allow students to purchase tickets before the public has access.”

There are additional discounts awarded for season subscribers or “choose your own package” purchases where specific shows can be picked out from a variety of series and combined for a small discount.

The Mondavi Center celebrates its ten-year anniversary next season, boasting events and shows in the new lineup. Brand-new events were just added to the Mondavi Center calendar, including Lyle Lovett on July 7, Steve Martin on August 25 and Eddie Izzard on October 26.

“The upcoming shows are exciting,” Caraway said. “I would advise students not to walk, but to run, to the ticket office for Steve Martin.”
