Center Stage

Subscriptions to the seven-show 2012-2013 season -- plays include "Clybourne Park" and "Bus Stop" (replacing the originally scheduled "A Delicate Balance") -- are between 21 percent and 60 percent off single-ticket prices. The highest savings is for preview performances. Prices for memberships range from $70 to $287. The opening night series, $168 to $276, includes post-performance parties with the cast, crew and staff. Center Stage's more than 8,500 members get free ticket exchanges, online or at the box office; advance notice of limited engagements; the option of buying parking vouchers; and 50 percent off intermission drinks, which can be ordered before the show. Membership at Center Stage also brings perks elsewhere. Those for next season haven't been set, but past offers have included two-for-one admissions to the American Visionary Art Museum and two-for-one ticket options for select BSO concerts. New memberships go on sale May 14. Call 410-332-0033 or go to Center Stage's website. There's also a less-commitment level of membership. "With the Flex Pass, you buy at least four tickets and save 50 percent," said Heather Jackson, Center Stage public relations manager. "You can use all four passes the same night or see four different shows. You can decide at the last minute what you want to see." Mini-subscription offers will be rolled out in the fall. Same for the "Go Pass," aimed at 18- to 34-year-olds. The price for next season hasn't been determined (it was $38 when introduced, and it attracted 600 takers). Pass-holders can attend almost any show and as many performances of a show as they like, if tickets are available. They can also buy extra tickets at a steeply reduced rate.
