PLATINUM Seating, GOLD Seating, SILVER Seating, and BRONZE Seating.

HOW ARE SEATS ASSIGNED?

Seating for the 2019-2020 season is assigned in the following order:
1) Returning Season Subscribers based on original Date of Purchase
2) All other subscriptions based on original Date of Purchase

WHEN DO I RECEIVE MY TICKETS?

Subscription orders will be confirmed with an email confirmation after order placement. Tickets for the entire season are sent out in late August or early September.

CAN I BUY INDIVIDUAL PERFORMANCES / TICKETS?

Tickets are sold by Series only. Tickets to individual events are not available. There are six separate lectures in the Series, and a Series ticket includes all six lectures. If a Series is not sold out when it begins in September, tickets remain available by Series, and the charge for the remaining engagements is prorated.

WHY?

Selling tickets as a package enables us to advertise the Series all at once and reduces the costs of presenting these notable speakers. If each event were marketed and ticketed individually, the ticket price would be approximately double that price.

ARE THERE ANY STUDENT DISCOUNTS?

The Sacramento Speakers Series is proud to offer our Share the Vision program, which allows students from local high schools to attend the Series, free of charge. For more information about Share the Vision, please contact 916.388.1100 or at info@sacramentospeakers.com.

HOW LONG IS EACH LECTURE?

Each evening lasts about 90 minutes, from 8pm to 9:30pm. The speaker lectures for about an hour, followed by a moderated question and answer section. This 25-30 minute session, during which the speaker clarifies or amplifies previous remarks or offers spontaneous and revealing new information, is often the most interesting portion of the evening.

CAN I GET AN AUDIO TAPE, VIDEO TAPE, OR TRANSCRIPT?

By contract, we do not create any of these for public use. Very seldom in our history has this been done, and it required special permission from several sources.

If your question, comment, suggestion, etc. has not been addressed above or, if you would like to interact with someone directly, please utilize the headings below.

WHERE CAN I FIND HANDICAP PARKING?

Handicap parking near the Convention Center can be somewhat difficult to find, but we have highlighted a few options below that are near the Community Center Theater and Memorial Auditorium.

MEMORIAL AUDITORIUM ACCESSIBLE SEATING LOCATIONS

The Memorial Auditorium has accessible seating at the floor and Dress Circle levels.

Please note, due to historical nature of the venue, Memorial Auditorium has no elevator or escalator access to the first or second balcony,

These additional accessible seats are held to accommodate accessible seating requests 1) until the event is sold out or 2) if event is not a sell-out, and seats are not purchased by a person with a disability, they may be sold to an able-bodied person on the day of the performance, subject to availability. A non-fixed chair will be placed in the space.

HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE IN POST-EVENT FEEDBACK SURVEYS?

We send an email with a survey link to our patrons following each event. If you do not receive an email from us following an event, but would like to, please Join our mailing list!
