Yakima Town Hall - Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Can we purchase individual tickets to the Town Hall Series?  

The Town Hall Speaker Series is sold as a package with one fee that is all-inclusive for the four speakers.  As you can well imagine, if sold individually, our tickets would each cost more than $85.00 for the caliber of speakers we offer.  By bundling them, we save printing costs, advertising costs, and ensure that each speaker has a full audience.  Donations from our sponsors cover a large portion of the cost of bringing these very special speakers to Yakima so we can keep our ticket price far below cost.

If I cannot attend a speaker, may I give away my ticket?

Absolutely!  I suggest that if you cannot attend all four speakers, you give some of your tickets away as gifts or employee incentives if you are a business owner.  People love receiving the tickets.  You can also share the purchase with a friend, with each of you attending half the speakers.   Of course, this is a great way to introduce a friend to Yakima Town Hall.

How can I purchase a gift certificate?  

You may purchase gift certificates for the next season’s speaker series, or purchase for the current season paying the full amount of $85.00 per season ticket.  You can send an e-mail to rjpryor28@msn.com or call (509) 952-0479 to place your order, or click here to buy tickets online.

Parking is difficult and I cannot walk a long distance.  Do you have any suggestions?

We have been granted permission by the City of Yakima to use the parking lot on Third Street across from the Yakima Police Department (Third & Walnut) 1 ½ blocks away.  Regardless of where you park, you should plan to start finding your parking place approximately 45 minutes before the event starts.  Taxi service is available in Yakima and is perfectly suited to deliver you to the front door.  Our speakers end promptly at noon, so you can tell your taxi when to pick you up.  

I ordered my tickets shortly after the last speaker in the spring.  When will you send my tickets?

We print the tickets in late August or early September so we can mail them out to our patrons approximately two weeks before the first speaker in the fall.   For those who purchase within two weeks before the first speaker, we will have them for you at The Capitol Theatre lobby when you arrive for the first speaker; this protects against tickets getting lost in the mail.

I know my tickets arrived in the mail and now I can’t find them.  What should I do?

We always have a list of our current ticket-holders at the theater.  When you approach the theater doors, tell the ticket-takers that you have misplaced your ticket and they will direct you to the Ticket Committee Chairperson who will make sure your name is on the list and then she will usher you into the theater.

Can Town Hall accommodate my special needs?

We have several sets of listening devices on tables just inside the front doors of the theater lobby.  You may check one out and return it at the end of the presentation.

If you will be arriving in a wheelchair, please contact us at least one week prior to the event.  There are a few spots in the theater where we can remove a chair to accommodate a wheelchair and reserve a seat for an attendant or helper next to you.  Both you and your caregiver must be ticketholders.

When will tickets for the next season’s series go on sale?

Current ticket holders will receive a brochure announcing the new season in April.  The brochure will include an order form for both the speaker series tickets and luncheons with the speaker.  Be sure to watch for the brochure and order early because we often sell out.  For those who are not presently ticket holders, Yakima Town Hall advertises the next season series in the Yakima Herald-Republic in April.  Once the season is published, you may order tickets by calling (509) 952-0479 where you can pay for your order by credit card. The tickets page on our website will also be set up the day after this year’s last speaker to allow you to order the next season’s series tickets by using PayPal.

I only want to attend the luncheons.  Can I buy luncheon reservations if I don’t buy the speaker series tickets?

Our luncheons are limited to 250 reservations to preserve the intimate feeling of dining with the speaker.  Only those who have ordered season tickets to the speaker series may make luncheon reservations.  A large number of our 1,000 ticket-holders vie for those 250 reservations which are sold on a first come-first served basis, with orders date-stamped as they arrive.  You will be notified by mail during the summer if you have a luncheon reservation.  Table assignments are posted inside the lobby before each speaker presentation.  

"Our ensemble hiked your beautiful canyon prior to my plane's departure, and I reflected on my warm reception at Yakima's Capitol Theatre. My appreciation for the women of Town Hall reminded me of this popular quote, 'Anytime there's a man who says something can't be done, don't interrupt the women already doing it.' Congratulations and continued success! " - Jane Alexander- Award-winning Actress, Proponent of the Arts
