The Ringgold Playhouse will offer five mainstage productions from February through September

The Ringgold Playhouse is currently offering season ticket packages for avid theater-goers as a forerunner to the opening of its 2018 season on Feb. 15. 

A tradition at TRP, the season ticket package grants admission to each production of the season for a discounted price. 

"It's just something we do every year that saves our audience members a little bit of money and thanks them for their patronage," said TRP Executive Director Adam Cook. "We have a lot of folks who attend every production, so a season ticket is a fitting deal for them." 

Ticket prices at TRP are $10 for general admission seats. The season ticket grants the purchaser admittance to all five mainstage productions at a rate of $40.  

"When we began the season ticket deal, it was a way for us to reward people who wanted to see all our shows by essentially giving them one of the shows for free," Mr. Cook said. "Our tickets aren't terribly expensive to begin with, but our regulars really seem to appreciate perk of good discount." 

TRP's 2018 season will kick off Feb. 15 with a seven-performance run of John Cariani's romantic comedy "Almost, Maine." The show tackles love, life, and relationships in the mythical Maine town full of quirky humor and endearing townspeople. 

The rest of the TRP includes Sam Shepard’s “True West” in April, TRP original “The Goober County Fair Talent Show” in May, “Neil Simon’s “Rumors” in July,” and the Wooten and Jones Hope comedy, “The Hallelujah Girls!” in September. 

Season and individual show tickets can be purchased in person at Ringgold City Hall, over the phone at 706-935-3061, or online at CityOfRinggoldGa.gov.
