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.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call (509) 952-0479 to place your order, or click here to buy tickets online.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
"Thank you to your wonderful Town Hall. We felt like we were with our own family...warm, welcome, truly delightful. If anyone had told me when I was a little girl in Egypt that I would be speaking to an audience in Yakima, Washington about peace I would never have believed it. Yet I'm so glad to have had the opportunity." - Madame Jehan Sadat, Egypt's First Lady
