For Chicago, Sold Out Doesn't Mean Shut Out

Tickets are selling as fast as bootleg hooch during Prohibition for Columbia Gorge Orchestra Association's ambitious production of Chicago: The Musical, currently running at Bingen Theatre and featuring local talent.

"The response has been tremendous," said director Bruce Ludwig. "It's been so satisfying for the dozens of people who have spent hundreds of hours on this show to see audiences enjoying every moment."

Advance tickets for several of the show's performance dates have sold out, but Ludwig says that doesn't necessarily mean people can't get in. "We release a very limited number of tickets forty-five minutes before each performance, when we open the theatre lobby," he said. "We'll try to squeeze in as many people as we can, so you might get lucky."

He also suggested that people try to buy advance tickets for Thursday nights or the remaining Sunday matinee, which have not sold out as quickly as Friday and Saturday performances.

Remaining performances are June 14, 15, 16, 21, 22 and 23 at 7:30 p.m., and June 17 at 2 p.m. Bingen Theatre is at 210 Oak Street in downtown Bingen, and advance tickets are available online at Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students. Due to the show's mature themes, Chicago is not recommended for children under 12, and children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
