Starting on June 9 the box office will also be open at the Little York Pavilion from 6:00 - 7:30 pm on performance evenings only and 11:00 am - 2:00 pm only on Sundays when matinees are held. Walk-ups may pay with cash, check or credit card. Phone orders are accepted at these times for credit card customers only. The Box Office phone numbers are 607-756-2627 and 800-427-6160.

Ticket sales are also available 24 hours a day through the CRT website at www.cortlandrep.org. Customers using this online service will be able to choose the performance and ticket price, and will be given the best available seats. A minimal additional charge will apply for on-line sales.

The CRT Box Office staff reminds customers that all single ticket sales are final. No refunds will be given at any time. With 24 hours notice, only subscribers may exchange tickets for a different performance within the run of the same production.

This summer’s productions include an exciting mix of plays and musicals, all of which are making their CRT debuts: Agatha Christie’s “Spider’s Web”: a comedic thriller by the Queen of Mystery from June 9 - 19; the hysterical farce “See How They Run” from June 23 – July 2; a three week run of the classic musical “The Pajama Game” from July 7 - 24; the magical and romantic Scottish musical “Brigadoon” from July 28 - August 14; the Central New York debut of the comedy “Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks” from August 18 - 28, and the New York State premiere of the gender bending WWII USO show “The Andrews Brothers” from September 1 - 11.

Tickets are also on sale for the CRT Kids show “The Jungle Book” which will be held for four performances only, on July 29, 31, August 6 & 7 at 10:00 am. Based on the classic children’s book and fun for the whole family, this delightful play will also be performed at the Little York Pavilion.

CRT invites customers planning to see “Brigadoon” to consider attending their benefit performance of “Broadway on the Lake” to be held on July 31. In addition to an evening performance of the musical, included with this ticket will be an elegant buffet offering hearty appetizers, assorted seafood and carving stations with complimentary non-alcoholic beverages, an extensive silent auction with items donated by Central New York businesses and a brief live auction of special “big ticket” items.
