Music Man ad

The pre-order period for tickets to The Music Man has closed, but there are still plenty of tickets available at the door before each show!

Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and K-12 students, with free tickets for preschoolers. The box office opens 45 minutes before each performance. We’re pressing our band uniforms and polishing a whole lot of trombones, so be sure to come out this weekend to see one of the most popular musicals to ever!

Ticket order deadline extended

The deadline for “MusicMan” cash/check preorders has been extended to Tuesday 4/25. Download the order form from, and send it to school with a cast or crew member, or drop it off in the Jr.-Sr. High office. Please make checks out to Madison Local Schools. Online credit card orders will be open through midnight Wednesday. Tickets will also be available at the door while they last.

We’re looking for your Disney trip photos!

1236780_613623275385201_868499272_nNow’s the perfect time to share the photos you took on the Disney trip with others, while you’re still recovering from the fun – or still stuck inside waiting for warmer weather! But Facebook has a bad habit of compressing photos uploaded there, so we’ve set up a group on Flickr where everyone can upload their photos and share them with others in their full glory. Here’s the link:

You can sign in with a Yahoo, Facebook or Google ID. Then upload your best photos from the trip. All photos will be approved before they are made public, so they won’t be visible right away. We’ve already got a few people planning to make videos of the trip, so your photos could end up in those masterpieces as long as you don’t wait – send in those photos now!

MadisonArts Tumblr + easier signup for texts

In our gradual but inevitable move towards pushing info directly into your brain (don’t laugh – one of these days you’ll be wearing Google Glass), MadisonArts now has a Tumblr blog. Just as with Facebook and Twitter, everything posted on the web site will automatically repost on Tumblr, but there will also be some occasional fun items for band and drama fans.

And now it’s easier to sign up for text updates via the Remind101 service. Students and parents can get texts for Band, Color Guard and/or Drama activities. We use Remind101 because of its safety features: we never see your phone number; it sends texts to the entire group, not individuals; and it’s one-way (we text you, but you can’t text back). And now, instead of having to send texts to get signed up, each of our three accounts has its own dedicated sign-up page:

So for those keeping score at home, here are all the ways you can get band and drama updates from MadisonArts:

  • Check the website
  • Sign up for email updates (fill out the form in the right hand column of the website)
  • Follow MadisonArts on Facebook, Twitter (@MadisonArts1) or Tumblr (also MadisonArts1)
  • Sign up for text updates via Remind1o1, using the links above.
  • And there are still Band newsletters distributed regularly with calendars and other information.

Les Misérables Photos available online

Performance photos from Les Misérables are now available for purchase online. Taken by our technical director, Kevin Ferguson, there are over 500 photos to choose from. (The samples you see are just a very small selection, and have been reduced in size; when you order prints, they will be full quality and have no watermarks.)

To access the galleries, you will need the password printed on the back of the Les Mis tickets. The password is also posted backstage in the theater, or you can email Kevin to request it. Click here to view the galleries.
