We’re All Set For The Capitol Steps Friday Night

Friday night at 8 PM, The Capitol Steps take the stage for what’s sure to be an all-out onslaught of political sasucceed-smalltire. We’ve been preparing all week for the
opening night show, and we even had a visit from Valonda Callaway of WNCN’s My Carolina Today. Valonda spoke with Scotty about the show and the upcoming season. She also visited with Palladian Series Principal’s Club sponsor Betsy Grannis of The Morning Glory Inn. If you missed the segment on the morning show, you can see it here.

Behind The Scenes: Single Ticket Sales, Stage Upgrades & More

Wow! It’s been a busy week here at The Clayton Center. Single tickets went on sale for all of our upcoming Palladian Series shows, and sales have been tremendous. So much so that if you’ve been thinking about seeing Capitol Steps in October or Jeanne Robertson in January, you may want to give us a call, come by or go online to purchase your tickets. Both shows are proving to be extremely popular with our patrons, and seats are going fast.

 While the box office staff was busy selling tickets, Scotty, Steven and crew were working to install and paint a new stage floor. The result is awesome.

The coming weeks will be full of exciting projects, including our annual Scene Stealers Sign-Up Social. We’ll gather our volunteers together with their calenclayton center-177dars and begin scheduling work times. If you’re interested in becoming a Scene Stealer, call the box office at 919-553-1737 and request to be put on our contact list. We always like to see new smiling faces at the shows.

Radio-active: Scotty Talks About New Palladian Series On Morning Show

Did you happen to catch our own Executive Director Scotty Henley talking up the season on KIX 102.9 FM this week? Scotty visited with on-air morning personality Jenn LuMaye and gave her the low down on all of our upcoming shows. As part of the morning show promotion, Jenn gave away a pair of tickets to the each show during the KIX morning quiz.kix-logo

The Clayton Center is partnering with KIX—and other local radio and TV stations—for the 2014-15 season. If you haven’t tuned in to the KIX classic hits station, check it out! Jenn will feature The Clayton Center during the morning show in the week leading up to each performance, so there will be more chances to win.

Look for The Clayton Center in this Sunday’s News & Observer, too. We’ll be included in the newspaper’s annual Fall Arts Preview, which lists all of the great arts and entertainment events going on around the Triangle. It’s a great reference you can plan to have on hand when you’re looking for something exciting to do close to home.
