The last 100 tickets are set to be released for Central Michigan University students to see actor Jeff Daniels’ Jan. 28 performance in Plachta Auditorium.
Tickets will be released between noon and 1 p.m. on Thursday, according to Jeff Calhoun, director of marketing and business for CMU.
Chris “Elmo” Walton, general manager of show sponsor Max & Emily’s Eatery, urges people to get there early if they want a ticket.
“We’ve given out 95 percent of our tickets already,” Walton said. “That’s one of the reasons we needed this to be a ticketed event.”
Tickets will be distributed as first come, first served. They will be available in the lower level of the Bovee University Center.
Because of the minimal number of tickets available, students are limited to two tickets per person.
Walton expects the auditorium to be packed. He said if people have tickets and they know they won’t be able to attend, pass them along to a friend.
“If there’s a ticket not being used, give it to someone else,” Walton said. “We want to keep that tradition of pay it forward alive. This is the largest show on (Daniels’) tour, and it’s his only free show on the tour.”
