Dinner Before the Show

Stocker Arts Center, in partnership with the office of LCCC Conferencing and Dining Services, Executive Chef Chase Wilcox, is offering dinner prior to the Performing Artists Series Shows. The dinners are held in either the Norton Culinary Arts Center or the Spitzer Conference Center. Once you come in to either the Norton Culinary Arts Center or Spitzer Conference Center, you don’t have to go back outside in the weather to get to Stocker – there is easy interior passage from both buildings to Stocker! Dinner tickets are $30 per person and seatings are at either 5:45pm or 6:15pm. The dinner tickets for the PAS shows are available when the shows go on sale. Seating is limited, so get your tickets early!

Valet Parking

At the same price since 2008 when we started offering the service!

We’re again offering Towne Park (formerly MVP Valet) parking on a prepaid basis for $5/per car (not including tip). You can pre-purchase Valet tickets up to 1 week prior to the performance – or when you buy your subscription! The prepaid Valet tickets indicate which show they are good for, so just bring the ticket with you when you come to that show. No worries about the weather, how crowded the lots will be or how far away you’ll have to park! You can pre-purchase Valet parking for 1 show for $5 – or for all 6 shows for only $30. Or, you can decide at the last moment to let the Towne Park Valets park your car – they will accept cash payment the day of the show. You can also still choose to park your car and take advantage of our free parking. It’s up to you!
