Tickets for Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan’s 2011 season have officially been on sale through Ticketmaster since April; however, those waiting to visit the festival staff at the riverbank site will be happy to learn that the on-site box office opens tomorrow (June 9th) at noon.
For the month of June, the box office will be open from 12:00pm to 6:00pm Monday to Saturday (with a short break between 2:30pm and 3:00pm).
