St Michael’s Cultural Pass
Welcome to the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts! We are thrilled to partner with Saint Michael's College to offer current Saint Michael's undergraduates the new Flynn Center/Saint Michael's College Cultural Pass. The Cultural Pass allows undergraduate students to attend more than 50 different world-class performances at the Flynn Center during the 2012-2013 academic year.
The Flynn Center, located at 153 Main Street between Church and St. Paul Streets in the heart of downtown Burlington's entertainment district, is a nationally renowned performing arts venue offering the best in jazz, world music, dance, American roots music, Broadway tours, and more. The Cultural Pass gives Saint Michael's students access to each event in the Flynn Center's regular season and select special events for just $10 per ticket.
Please review and follow the simple guidelines and info on how to order tickets below to help you maximize your cultural experience. Download a copy of the season brochure (PDF) or view the online version.
Cultural Pass Guidelines & Information
As a Saint Michael's College undergraduate student in good standing, you will be automatically signed up for the Cultural Pass. The first time you order tickets, please allow extra time in case any issues or problems arise with verifying your account. You can start to order tickets with your Cultural Pass beginning September 12, and may continue to order tickets any time throughout the 2012-13 season. Therefore, it is in your best interest to get tickets for the very popular performances--such as the Broadway tours--as early as possible. Once a performance is sold out, you will not be able to get a ticket.
Cultural Pass tickets that are connected to a class requirement will be arranged in advance by your instructor and will be provided at no cost to the student. In most cases these tickets will be distributed to students by their instructor at the Flynn Center prior to the performance.
Rules and Regulations
1. Students need only contribute $10 to the cost of tickets. The balance of the ticket cost will be paid for by Saint Michael's.
2. Each pass is good for one (1) ticket for each qualifying event for your own use. You are welcome to purchase additional tickets for friends at the regular ticket price.
3. Tickets are for your own use only. The Cultural Pass is NON-TRANSFERRABLE.
4. Any misuse of the Cultural Pass will result in cancellation of your pass.
The Cultural Pass is valid for performances in the Flynn Center's 2012-13 MainStage and FlynnSpace Series as well as other events that are added through the year. The Cultural Pass is only valid for performances presented by the Flynn Center. Some performances at the Flynn Center are presented by other promoters (i.e., Higher Ground, Vermont Symphony Orchestra, Vermont Stage Company, etc.) and are not included in the Cultural Pass.
To order tickets to a performance, simply go to the Flynn Center Box Office at 153 Main Street in Burlington or call the Flynntix phone line at (802) 863-5966. Please have your Knight Card with you when you visit or call, as the Box Office will need to verify your identity and account number. Without your Knight Card, the box office will not be able to issue you tickets under the Cultural Pass program. For every ticket you order a $10 student contri¬bution will be required. The Box Office accepts cash and all major credit cards, as well as in-state checks (drawn on a Vermont bank and with a Vermont address only). Please note that unfortunately the Box Office cannot accept the SMC Knight Card as a form of payment at this time.
For phone orders, please note that for Cultural Pass tickets, the Flynn Center has agreed to waive the usual $2.50/ticket convenience charge. However, if you choose to order additional tickets to a performance the $2.50/ticket convenience charge for ordering over the phone will apply to each additional ticket (not the Cultural Pass ticket). For telephone purchases, your ticekts will be held for you to pick up during Box Office business hours or on the night of the show. Tickets can only be held in your own name for pick up, and you must present a photo ID. Please plan to arrive 1/2 hour in advance of the performance time to ensure ample time for ticket pickup.
If you have friends or family that would like to sit together but are purchasing tickets individually, one of you should place the first order and make the Box Office agent who helps you aware of the size of your group. The Box Office will be able to hold adjacent seats for your group. You will be given the location of the seats and they can be held for 24 hours for your friends or family to purchase by visiting or calling the Box Office and mentioning the seat location. Please note, however, that seats cannot be held for purchase within three days of a performance. If you wish to purchase adjacent seats within three days of a performance, you must order tickets at the same time -- either by visiting or calling the Box Office together.
Box Office hours are from 10 - 5 Monday - Friday, and 11 - 4 on Saturday. On nights of MainStage performances, the Box Office window stays open for in-person sales through showtime. On nights of Flynnspace performances, the Box Office closes at the usual time but then re-opens 1/2 hour before showtime for in-person sales.
Ticket Return Policy
You should only order tickets to performances you have a commitment to attend, as Saint Michael's pays for every ticket ordered and picked up. However, if an unavoidable conflict arises and you are unable to use your ticket, you should bring your ticket to the Knight Card Office to ensure that your ticket is not wasted. Your ticket will be redistributed to another member of the Saint Michael's community. The $10 student contribution is not refundable.
