WHAT TYPE OF SEATING IS AVAILABLE?

****Please note that you are selecting your seats for the events held at the Community Center Theater only. Comparable seats for the Yo Yo Ma event at Memorial Auditorium will be assigned. If you have any questions, please call our office at 916-388-1100.
HOW ARE SEATS ASSIGNED?
Seating for the 2014-2015 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 a mailed letter approximately two weeks after order placement. Tickets for the entire season are sent out during the middle part of 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 October, tickets remain available by Series, and the charge for the remaining engagements is prorated.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
WHAT HANDICAP SEATING IS AVAILABLE?
As of February 2010, additional accessible seating is available at the Community Center Theater. This seating (four spaces plus four companion seats), located in row I on the main floor (orchestra level), is available for patrons with disabilities. To utilize these seats, a patron using a mobility device must have a vertical clearance no greater than 42” so as not to obstruct the sight line of the stage for patrons seated behind row I. The vertical clearance is measured from the floor to shoulder height, or from floor to top of the seat back to their mobility assisted device, whichever is greater. Other patrons who request accessible seating can be seated in the Grand Tier (Row WC), Second Tier (Row WC) or main level (Row CC).
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!
