HAMMOND -- Tickets for the 17th
season of Fanfare, Southeastern Louisiana University’s annual October arts
festival, go on sale Sept. 16 when the Fanfare box office opens at the
Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts, 220 E. Thomas St., in downtown
Box office hours are noon-5 p.m., weekdays,
and the telephone number is 985-543-4371. On days when performances are
scheduled at the Columbia Theatre, box office hours will be extended until
curtain time, said Columbia/Fanfare Artistic Director Donna Gay Anderson.
“The opening of the Columbia Theatre
for the Performing Arts last January has given us an exciting new venue
for Fanfare events,” Anderson said. “While we will still stage wonderful
events on campus, many Fanfare 2002 events will take place in this beautifully
renovated performance hall. If you haven’t already attended an event at
the Columbia, we invited you to do so during Fanfare. Fanfare, as always,
has something for everyone!”
