Kelsey Theatre Announces Arrival of “Vendini”


Kitty Getlik, artistic director at Kelsey Theatre, is excited to announce “Vendini,” a new ticket purchasing service for all Kelsey performances that is convenient and easy to use.  Patrons may go on the Kelsey Theatre website at and click on a show they are interested in seeing.  After clicking on the “Buy Now” prompt, they will be directed to a page that asks for the number of tickets they wish to purchase and then searches for the best available seating. A layout of the theatre pops up instantly and the buyer can agree to purchase those seats or ask for another set elsewhere in the theater.  Patrons may specify a particular section of the theatre for their seats; there is also an option for aisle seating,


As with the former pricing system, Vendini lists pricing for the general public (adults, seniors, and students/children) and a discounted rate for MCCC faculty, staff, and students with ID.  Once the purchaser inputs credit card information, the tickets are e-mailed within seconds to his or her home computer to be printed out, or the buyer can request that the tickets be “snail” mailed or held at the Kelsey box office for pick-up.  Purchases via computer may be made up to one hour prior to curtain time.


A small per ticket service charge is included in the new system.  For all in-person or phone purchases, the service charge is $1.  The discounted ticket price for MCCC staffers is $5 plus the $1 ticketing charge – totaling $6 a ticket (a savings of $11 on full-length musicals!).  For computer purchases from home, an additional service charge of less than $2 per ticket will be added to the total – still a tremendous bargain compared to the cost other ticketing services, the cost of most other live performances and the average movie ticket.  Tickets can still be purchased the old-fashioned way too – by calling the box office at (609) 570-3333, Mon-Fri. 9am-noon, and having them mailed or held at the theatre.


According to Vendini, Inc., the company is the number one provider of box office ticketing solutions for small- to medium-sized venues.  Experience the ease and convenience of Vendini…and the amazing world of live theatre at Kelsey.
