We have approximately 375 seats available for each show. A lot of people decide at the last minute to come, and there are always out-of-town visitors who hear about the show while they are in this area. We want to always have seats available for those people. We have had visitors from New York, Wisconsin, Vermont, Georgia, Arkansas, Nevada, Virginia, California, and other states have attended as well as visitors from foreign countries including France, Germany, Canada, Holland, and Hong Kong just to name a few. We would hate to turn them away because we sold all the seats in advance.

If you want advance tickets, they are available at the Abita Springs Town Hall during business hours 9-5 Monday-Friday. If you are out-of-town, they will make arrangements to have you send a check and mail you the tickets. (Please do this far enough in advance to expedite the process, and call beforehand to make the arrangements 985-892-0711) If you don't have the tickets, the doors open at 5:45. The line for tickets purchased at the door can start forming as early as 5pm, so we recommend get in line early, just in case, so you get a good seat.

Advanced tickets available at:

Abita Springs Town Hall
