Support Friends of McCain

July 2021

Dear Friends of McCain:



The past several months have been challenging, but thanks to your past financial support, intermission will soon end. I am beyond excited to announce that we will be debuting our new lobby space and presenting live shows this September! Can you even imagine a live show at McCain Auditorium again?

Your continued support will help make that happen! We plan to present six spectacular shows this fall, increasing to around 10 in the spring. Despite the decrease in the typical number of shows, the season promises to bring sheer joy! To get things kicked off, we will announce part of the exciting season in late July. We will then add and announce shows periodically as our systems ramp up. As we add shows after our initial announcement in late July, Friends of McCain donors will receive early access to purchase tickets before the added shows go on sale to the general public.

As part of our rebuilding process, purchasing tickets will not be the same. Shows will not be available in season packages, and we will not be offering subscriber discounts and priority seating as we have in the past. As our return to normalcy will be incremental, we have instead chosen to focus our time to getting back to doing what we do best, presenting great shows you love just as soon as we can. We plan to return to our normal level of personalized service for our valued donors for the 2022–2023 season.

With that said, we are offering many exciting thank you gifts (depending on donation level) for THIS season such as free garage parking, exclusive VIP admittance to the Director’s Lounge in our brand-new second floor multipurpose room, complimentary one-time use of our new spaces, early access to purchase tickets to added shows before they go on sale to the public, and more! There are many changes to our thank you gift program this year. For a full list of opportunities, click here. As there will not be a season ticket catalog and order form this year to indicate your 2021–2022 Friends gift, please consider renewing your Friends membership now with this form.

Your support will help us return to presenting a broad array of world-class live shows and offer impactful outreach and educational events to K-Staters and the surrounding communities. Thanks again for helping us through this long and unexpected intermission. With your help, McCain will return stronger than ever. The show will go on. We cannot wait to WELCOME YOU BACK!

Todd Holmberg, Director
