F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre to Premiere Improved Ticket Purchasing System

'Rent,' 'Do Not Disturb,' and Ballet Scheduled for July Rockville, Maryland, June 24 -- ShoWare, the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre's new online ticketing system, will go live July 1. Patrons will experience better graphics and find it easier to buy tickets to print at home. Users will also be able to view their purchasing history, check out an interactive seating map and donate to the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre. The theater will be closed for events and performances in August and early September while it undergoes several renovation projects:
  • Behind the theater, a new surface lot will significantly expand accessible parking options.
  • The social hall will be updated to provide enhanced space for meetings and events, as well as a new entryway for those using the rear parking lots.
  • The theater’s house will undergo roof reinforcement, allowing more flexibility for advanced lighting and sound technology.
The box office will be open throughout construction, 2-7 p.m., Tuesday-Friday. Visit www.rockvillemd.gov/theatre to buy tickets and for more information, or call the box office at 240-314-8690.

"Rent," by Rockville Musical Theatre, will hold eight performances from July 8-24. The city’s Human Rights Commission and Rockville Musical Theatre are encouraging “Rent” audience members to bring a bag of toiletries to the show to donate to homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth in shelters. Rockville Civic Ballet will present “Cinderella” at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, July 30, and 2 p.m., Sunday, July 31.
