The Columbus Association of the Performing Arts (CAPA) has relocated its box office operations just a few feet away to 39 East State Street. The space was formerly occupied by the old Ohio Theatre gift shop, which closed in 2008.
The new was redesigned to provide performing arts patrons a new modern space to purchase tickets to events in a user-friendly and efficient fashion. The new ticket office is equipped with multiple monitors to provide customers a view of seating options when purchasing tickets. The front windows of the new office will also display upcoming events and information.
“The new ticket center is all about our patrons,” said Bill Conner, President and CEO of CAPA. “We want to provide them with the best customer service we possibly can, and this state-of-the-art ticket center is a powerful tool towards that goal.”
Another unique feature of the new space will be autographed stage doors on display from the Ohio Theatre. Former stage manager Joe Worman had performing stars sign the doors, amassing a huge collection of signatures during his 40 year tenure from 1955 to 1995. Autographs include Bette Davis, Vincent Price, Woody Hayes, Gene Rodenberry, Muhammed Ali, Phyllis Diller, Richard Pryor, The Grateful Dead, The Who, Bruce Springsteen, and many others.
The CAPA Ticket Center is open from 9am-5pm Monday through Friday and 10am-2pm on Saturday.
