Group Sales Testimonials

“We love bringing our Girl Scouts to the Wharton Center. It’s always a magical experience taking girls into the theater for the first time! The wonderful staff makes group sales so easy to organize.” 
– Beth F.

“Thank you for helping us with our group tickets. The seats were PERFECT! Amazing actually. I wish you could have seen the look on all the kids’ faces in our group (and the parents) – pure joy and excitement!”
– Amy J.

“We love dealing with the Wharton Center! We have been able to offer some great motor coach day trips, which is good for us and our clients!”
– Shelli F.

“I have always found the Wharton Center eager to accommodate my groups, whether I’m corralling 60 middle schoolers or organizing a church or family group. Keep those shows coming!
– Libby K.

“My students continually ask to return to MSU because they love the quality and variety of the Broadway shows. As a high school educator, I have very little free time to schedule live theater opportunities for my students. But, alas, with the help of the Wharton Center group sales team, my efforts are achieved. They are very easy to work with and make the process of ordering tickets painless.”
– Jim K.
