Some audience members attending the Westborough Players' Club's upcoming season opener also will have seats -- for the first time -- for the year's remaining two productions.
The club's new season ticket program had generated about eight or 10 sales as of Friday night, Corresponding Secretary Ted Frumkin said during rehearsal for "Annie" that evening, at the Gibbons Middle School.
“I think that what’s been helpful is we got the word out early about this show and the rest of the season," he said.
"All three shows, we were able to get the rights early. So, we were able to hire the directors already. The season’s totally planned for the year. So, now we can announce it.”
Season tickets are $40 for adults, and $20 for seniors and students. By comparison, tickets per show are $15 for adults, and $10 for seniors and students.
“The thought was that it would be able to give the customer a chance to enjoy all three shows at a discounted price,” Frumkin said.
“And then, you’re guaranteed a seat to the show.”
The club opens its 76th year by performing "Annie" at 7:30 p.m. Friday, 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday.
The club will perform "Arsenic and Old Lace" in April, and "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" in August.
