Three Stages launches second full season

Bringing artists from all over the world, and from almost every genre, Three Stages will offer literally hundreds of performances in the 2012-13 season.

Beginning in August, 2012 and concluding in June, 2013; world-class performers from Branford Marsalis to The Manhattan Transfer, from the Vienna Boys Choir to  Natalie MacMaster, from the China National Symphony Orchestra to the Russian National Ballet Theatre, from the Pipes and Drums of the Black Watch to “Shrek The Musical,” will grace the stages at Three Stages. Complementing the stellar international lineup is a who’s who of regional arts organizations, from the El Dorado Musical Theatre to the Sacramento Guitar Society to the Folsom Symphony and more, including the Three Stages’ debut of the Sacramento Opera.

“For the upcoming 2012-13 season of performing arts, we have broadened our offerings while deepening the program overall,” noted Three Stages Executive Director Dave Pier. “The demand is there — we had over 100 sold out shows during the 2011-12 season, and we think our audience is hungry for what we can bring to Folsom.”

Tickets go on sale online — threestages.net — at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 30, and in person/via phone — (916) 608-6888 — at 10 a.m. on July 2.

Patrons buying five or more tickets to Three Stages Presents events featuring touring artists will receive a 15 percent discount over single ticket prices. They may also select from over a dozen different “ThreePacks” of select events assembled by theme available in three-event subscription packages for 15 percent off the single ticket price.

Complete information about shows, ticket prices, performance times and more will be available at threestages.net beginning at 10 a.m. on June 30.

The 2012-13 season begins with a bang in August with “Weird Al” Yankovic performing for three shows Aug. 10 & 11; The Manhattan Transfer, performing as part of an elegant black-tie benefit for the Folsom Lake College Foundation on Aug. 18 and the enigmatic singer-songwriter Madeleine Peyroux performing Aug. 23.
