Summer Stories

Welcome to the College of Fine Arts & Mass Communication's Big Ticket!

September 11, 2012
Hi Kimberly,

It was only a matter of time before we created our own bi-monthly e-newsletter. With five dynamic departments in one college: the Departments of Art, Dance, Mass Communication, Theatre & Musical Theatre and the School of Music, there's so much going on! Written and edited by our new marketing coordinator Kim Mathie, we hope to keep you abreast of everything related to art, dance, music, theatre, and media happening in the College of Fine Arts & Mass Communication

We're delighted to announce that we've made it even easier to buy tickets for COFAMC events! You can now purchase theatre tickets, along with dance and music,  through the James & Nancy Gaertner Performing Arts Center Box Office in person or by calling (936) 294-2339. As usual, you can still purchase theatre tickets at the University Theatre Center Box Office in person or by calling (936) 294-1339.

In addition, you will now be able to buy tickets online! Wherever there is a computer with an internet connection, you can safely and affordably purchase tickets online.  

I hope you decide to join us regularly in your inboxes as well in our numerous performances spaces and art galleries. Art is never better than when done in collaboration with others and that includes you, our SHSU & Huntsville community. We want you consider us your Big Ticket to dynamic and exciting arts and media events!

Dr. Mary Robbins, Interim Dean
College of Fine Arts & Mass Communication
