Whether it’s enjoying our favorite Broadway shows or traveling the world, we all want to live our best lives. Helping people achieve financial confidence to live their best life is our purpose and passion at SunTrust.

WELCOME FROM THE MAYOR As Durham’s mayor, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Durham Performing Arts Center as this nationally-renowned venue begins its twelfth season. My wife and I have been season ticket holders in DPAC’s Broadway series since it opened in 2008, and like DPAC’s more than 4 million guests, I continue to marvel at the caliber of performances showcased in our great city. Each year just gets better and better. For example, a record-breaking 530,000 visitors walked the red carpet last year to attend award-winning musicals, such as HAMILTON, Dear Evan Hansen, and CATS, as well as sold-out concerts including Widespread Panic, Bob Dylan, and Jill Scott. That’s not all. While providing entertainment that families can enjoy together is a top priority for DPAC, finding ways to involve those who may not otherwise enjoy all that the arts have to offer has become a special passion for this theater. Last year, DPAC implemented “DPAC for All,” a program that offers discounted tickets exclusively for Durham residents. No doubt, the arts contribute to Durham’s sense of community.Your attendance enables DPAC to support other nonprofit arts groups, such as the Durham Arts Council and the Hayti Heritage Center. DPAC also cultivates the arts in education by arranging visits from touring cast members to local schools through Heart of the Arts, and not to mention donating hundreds of tickets each year to schools and local charities to use for auctions and fundraising. DPAC is constantly working to ensure that the arts touch many areas of Durham and, indeed, the entire Triangle community. A visit to DPAC is an open invitation to experience Durham—from great awardwinning restaurants to shopping and culture. It’s as easy as parking and either walking, biking or taking the bus to downtown eateries, or taking a short drive to nearby malls, museums or historical sites. You should know that both Durham and DPAC have strong track records: The City recently celebrated 150 years of serving our growing, diverse population, while in November DPAC marked over a decade of showcasing award-winning entertainment. Thank you being a part of our history, present and future just by choosing DPAC and Durham. Now settle into your seats to enjoy your DPAC experience and an unforgettable show! Sincerely,

Mayor Steve Schewel

WELCOME FROM THE GENERAL MANAGER Welcome to DPAC! For 12 seasons now, I have had the opportunity to offer these greetings to DPAC’s guests; not only at our hit Broadway shows, but also our concert and comedy events, family shows and special events of all kinds. Since opening in 2008, almost 4.5 million people have attended the 2,000+ events DPAC has hosted. While those numbers might be impressive, what I am most proud of is our relationship with our guests. On page 14 of this program, you will find DPAC’s Guiding Principles. I invite you to review these principles and know that they factor into everything we do at DPAC. Guest experience is so very important to us at DPAC.  Before, during, and after your visit, our team is hard at work to make your visit and experience truly extraordinary. Do you read our Know Before You Go emails? We send these emails to best prepare our guests for their next event at DPAC, with show time reminders, parking and traffic information, and more. Also important to the DPAC experience is our secret shopper program.This evaluation by an outside firm allows us to have an objective view of each and every stop on the DPAC customer journey, from entry to leaving DPAC after the end of the show. Finally, our guests’ feedback is instrumental in continuing to deliver DPAC’s legendary red-carpet customer service, which is why we review each and every one of the 40,000 guest surveys we receive each season. We do not always get it right, but when we miss an expectation or just make a mistake, we stop, step back and always do our best to make it right with our valued guests and customers. Thank you for your support and for being here at this very special event. With your help and feedback, DPAC will always strive to meet the highest customer service standards among live entertainment venues in America. Sincerely,

Bob Klaus General Manager

OUR THEATER FAMILY THE NEDERLANDER ORGANIZATION If you’ve ever attended a Broadway show in New York, chances are you may have been to one of DPAC’s sister theaters operated by its parent company,The Nederlander Organization.

Other shows currently playing in Nederlander Theaters in New York include Tootsie The Musical and Waitress. New Broadway hits playing in the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, Nederlander, and Neil Simon Theatres will be announced soon.

Nederlander, the Nederlanders have built a national network of theaters including nine Broadway venues in New York: The Palace, The Brooks Atkinson, The Gershwin, The LuntFontanne, The Marquis, The Minskoff, The Nederlander, The Richard Rodgers, and The Neil Simon Theatres. Outside of New York, their venues include Broadway In Chicago at The CIBC Theatre, The James M.

TRIANGLE RISING STARS CELEBRATING THE BEST OF HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL THEATRE IN OUR REGION

DPAC is proud to present the 10th anniversary of Triangle Rising Stars, the regional qualifying event for The National High School Musical Theatre Awards™ (NHSMTA). NHSMTA is a national competition that celebrates outstanding student performances in high school musical productions across the United States.Triangle Rising Stars brings together high school musical theatre students from Durham, the Triangle and the surrounding region to perform and compete for a chance to represent DPAC in the national finals in New York City each summer. A team of judges from DPAC, Duke University, ABC 11, Carolina Theatre and other arts and performance professionals attend area high school musical productions throughout the school year. Twenty finalists are then selected to rehearse and compete with the best of their peers, culminating in a live performance at the Triangle Rising Stars Showcase and Awards show at DPAC each May. This year, seven awards will be presented during the live ceremony: Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Dancer, Best Singer, Best Ensemble, Triangle Shining Star (congeniality award), and The Marchael Bayne Award for Best Musical. The students awarded Best Actress and Best Actor each receive $2,000 academic scholarships and are invited on an all-expenses-paid trip to the NHSMTA program in New York City in June at Nederlander’s Minskoff Theatre, home for Disney’s The Lion King.

GUEST ETIQUETTE At DPAC, we’re committed to Guest Courtesy. Please remember to be a good neighbor to those seated around you. AFTER THE PERFORMANCE

Yes, the lobby gets busy and the parking lots can be tricky, but please remain at your seats until the houselights come up. As a courtesy to the performers and other audience members, DPAC asks that you do not rush for the exits prematurely at the end of the performance.

CAMERAS / RECORDING

Photography and video recording is prohibited by almost all of the events that DPAC hosts. All electronic devices (cell phones, smartphones, tablets, digital cameras) must be turned off before the start of the show. The light from phones is distracting to others throughout the seating area. Cameras with a detachable lens are never allowed at DPAC, and for most shows, no cameras of any kind are allowed including small pointand-shoot cameras.

ENTERING AND EXITING THE SEATING AREA

Please time your exit and re-entry to the seating area to occur only at intermission or breaks between songs. This is a courtesy to other guests around you who will appreciate you keeping these disruptions to a minimum.

KIDS AT DPAC

Please note that all guests require a ticket, regardless of age. Children under the age of 6 are not allowed at most DPAC performances including Broadway, Concerts and Comedy shows. For some shows DPAC will make recommendations on the appropriate minumum age based on the content and the length of the event. Parental discretion is always advised and judgment of the appropriateness of the content for each show should be made on an individual basis prior to purchase. Children must be able to sit quietly in their own seat without disturbing other guests. As a further courtesy to our guests, DPAC recommends one parent or chaperone for every one child in attendance.

IT CAN WAIT.

Please save texting until AFTER the show. The light from phones is distracting to others throughout the theater. Please keep them turned off.

IT’S SUPERSTAR ENTERTAINMENT, NOT A FOOD FEST

Small snacks and drinks are welcome in the seating area, but as a courtesy to those around you, eat and drink as quietly as possible. Please know that odors and noisy wrappers can disturb others. We also ask that you finish sandwiches or other large food items before entering the seating area.

QUIET PLEASE.

Once the show starts, please let the stage be the center of attention. We ask that you turn off all cell phones and limit conversation. If children are attending this performance with you, please exit the theater immediately if they become restless or talkative.

AVOID SCALPERS

Don’t purchase tickets from Internet scalpers! At DPAC, we’re tired of seeing unauthorized ticket brokers take advantage of DPAC ticket buyers. Don’t be fooled by online websites who mimic DPAC’s name or website and offer tickets they might not even have. You will always pay more, will rarely get the seats they advertise, and you may even receive counterfeit tickets.

Go directly to DPACnc.com or to Ticketmaster.com; type it in yourself, rather than using an online search. These are the only OFFICIAL ONLINE TICKETING PROVIDERS for events at DPAC.

If you do use a search engine, look for the official DPAC website www.DPACnc.com. Only our authentic venue site is allowed to be labeled as “official.”

“Speculative Listing” is when unofficial sellers list tickets for sale even though they do not actually have those tickets. They are betting they can trick you into buying tickets, often in seat locations you may not really want and at a price much higher than what others are paying for the same seats. For more information about speculative ticketing, visit this warning from Ticketmaster: https://insider.ticketmaster.com/spec-ticketing/

Avoid unsecured purchases from fraudulent and misleading online ticket brokers. Don’t overpay for your tickets. For the best prices and best selection, always go directly to DPACnc.com or Ticketmaster.com and BUY DIRECT!

DISCOVER BROADWAY Donate your tickets and give area students the chance to experience their first Broadway show ever!

DPAC’s Discover Broadway offers SunTrust Broadway members a way to donate their tickets so their valuable seats do not go to waste.

During the 2018 / 2019 season, DPAC saw a 60% growth in Discover Broadway donations. Thanks to the generosity of DPAC’s Season Seat Members, over 200 seats were donated to deserving individuals including students from Durham Public Schools and Partners for Youth Opportunity plus seniors living in Durham public housing. For many, these seats provided opportunities to experience their first Broadway show ever. For the 2018 / 2019 season, DPAC’s Discover Broadway will be partnering with Durham Public Schools and North Carolina Central University to reach students in the performing arts who would otherwise be unable to attend a hit Broadway show at DPAC. By generously donating tickets you cannot use, Durham students will receive the chance to experience the magic of a hit Broadway show. These donated tickets provide the opportunity of a lifetime.

It’s easy to help: • If you know in advance that you cannot attend a show, or even if one member of your party will not be joining you, simply contact DPAC at :

DiscoverBroadway@dpacnc.com

• You will receive an acknowledgment from DPAC that your unused tickets will be reprinted for donation to an area student. • You, then, discard your original tickets and DPAC will handle all other details. * Please note: ticket donations must be made at least 72 hours prior to your scheduled performance date.

THANK YOU TO DPAC’S CORPORATE PARTNERS:


DPAC AMBASSADORS In 2018, DPAC launched Performing Arts Ambassadors, a new program for high school students passionate about live entertainment and the performing arts. 20 students were selected from over 50 applicants, and each was able to see the diversity offered by DPAC and acquire a behind-the-scenes look at the events presented by one of the top-five theaters in America. These up-close experiences not only help students realize the importance of the arts, but also allows them first-hand experiences that may help them one-day choose a career path in performing arts management. And just as important, DPAC’s Performing Arts Ambassadors are able to share their insights and experiences with other teens throughout the region via social media. High school-aged students are encouraged to apply each summer for the upcoming season. Ambassadors volunteer in a variety of roles at events, shadow key staff members, attend DPAC events, and report about their experiences via a blog and other social media channels throughout the school year.
