Broadway Grand Rapids rolls out five and six-ticket packages for 2021-22 season
GRAND RAPIDS, MI – Broadway Grand Rapids recently announced show packages of five and six tickets for the 2021-22 season.
The five-ticket package includes Hairspray, Isn’t Too Proud, Dear Evan Hansen, Mean Girls, and Come From Away, all of which were postponed last season. The package with six tickets adds “Hamilton” to the roster, which is in town for two weeks.
RELATED: Broadway Grand Rapids will reopen in September 2021 with 5 shows scheduled and the return of ‘Hamilton’.
The ticket packages are the audience’s first opportunity to secure seats for a variety of shows. Individual tickets for each show will be available at a later date.
The five-ticket package starts at $ 219 and the six-ticket package starts at $ 268.
The announcement comes due to the pandemic in a difficult year for the theater industry.
“We’re now on the map for this new season to tour Broadway,” said Meghan Distel, Broadway Grand Rapids director of marketing. “It showed that Grand Rapids is ready to support these shows, the growth we’ve seen over the past few years.”
“This line-up for next year is no exception,” she said. “The shows just keep getting better.”
Performance dates for the 2021-2022 season are:
- Come away from us – 21.-26. September 2021
- Hairspray – 11-16 January 2022
- Hamilton – February 8-20, 2022
- Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of Temptation – March 29 – April 3, 2022
- Dear Evan Hansen – 3.-8. May 2022
- Middle Girls – 21-26 June 2022
Distel said that while it is difficult to determine what January will bring when the “hairspray” season kicks off, Broadway Grand Rapids will adhere to health guidelines after adjusting during last year’s postponed season. She said the health and comfort of the audience is a top priority.
There are plans to work with local and state health officials on a health and wellness plan that complies with local, state, and federal guidelines to welcome the audience back together. Health and safety plans are communicated prior to the first show.
Since announcing the package last week, Distel said what she heard the most was the excitement of viewers longing to get back to live theater.
“I think it has been mentally stressful to see life in this pandemic for the past 14 months and so we hear nothing but positive because of the excitement and enthusiasm of our patrons,” she said.
