Hancher's 2018/2019 Season

Tickets for Hancher’s 2018/2019 season will go on sale to the general public at 10 am on Wednesday, August 1, 2018. Tickets may be purchased, starting on that day, in person at the Hancher Box Office, by phone at 800-HANCHER / (319) 335-1160, or online from Hancher's website.

Patrons who made a gift of at least $100 since July 1, 2017, had the opportunity to participate in this year’s donor pre-sale. Advocate level donors (gifts of $1,000 or more to support Hancher programming) will be seated first. Those who gave at least $100 but less than $1,000 since July 1, 2017, will be seated after the Advocate level donors are seated. All qualifying donors received by mail a season brochure and had from May 8 to June 1 to submit their orders via an order form provided in their season brochure. All donors will be seated prior to tickets going on sale to the general public on August 1. If you wish to support Hancher and take advantage of this donor benefit, please contact the University of Iowa Center for Advancement by phone at (800) 648-6973. You can also donate directly at hancher.uiowa.edu/support.
