  • We will take a limited number of reservations (2 tickets per person) which must be picked up between 7:30 - 7:45 PM. Your reservation guarantees you a seat as long as you are in line by 7:45 PM. After that, we'll accommodate walkups on a first come first served basis until the theater is full.

    Your donations will be used to pay for the costs of the show and to support the Old Town School's outreach programs bringing music to underserved youth.

    Doors open at 7:30 PM. No entry to the concert hall prior to this time.


    Rock star, crowdfunding pioneer, and TED speaker Amanda Palmer knows all about asking. Performing as a living statue in a wedding dress, she wordlessly asked thousands of passersby for their dollars. When she became a singer, songwriter, and musician, she was not afraid to ask her audience to support her as she surfed the crowd (and slept on their couches while touring). And when she left her record label to strike out on her own, she asked her fans to support her in making an album, leading to the world's most successful music Kickstarter.
