Ticket Information

Ticket Prices
As a not-for-profit LSU foundation, the HopKins Black Box requests donations for tickets. The 2006-2007 admission to events in the HopKins Black Box is by a suggested donation of $3 for showcases, $5 for shows, and $7 for guest artist performances. Guest lectures are free. We accept cash, and checks made out to Speech Performance Lab.

Box Office
Tickets are made available to the public one half hour before each performance at the door of the HopKins Black Box, 137 Coates Hall, on the LSU campus in Baton Rouge.

Tickets may also be reserved by calling the main office of the Department of Communication Studies at (225) 578-4172, or by emailing the theatre manager at jlebre1@lsu.edu. Requests should be made at least 24 hours before the performance. Please stipulate which night and how many tickets you would like to reserve. The main office is open from 9 am to 12 pm and 1 to 4:30 pm on Monday through Friday.

Reserved tickets are held at the door of the HopKins Black Box until 15 minutes before the start of the show, when they are made available to others.

The HopKins Black Box is a fairly intimate space with chair-on-riser seating. Audience capacity ranges between 50-100 people, as determined by the director of each show.

All seating is general although accommodations are made for people who need or request them.

Typically, we open the house 10 minutes before the start of each show. When attendance is heavy, patrons are admitted according to their ticket numbers, the lowest numbers first.

As the director prefers, late arrivals may or may not be admitted to the theatre once the show starts.

There are parking lots directly adjacent to Coates Hall. For the Friday and Saturday night shows and the Sunday matinee, the lots are typically free of traffic and youll find plenty of places to park. For the Wednesday and Thursday night shows, these same lots are busy and finding a place to park is more difficult. If the lots are full, we suggest you try the union parking lot located directly across the street from Coates Hall or additional spaces on Tower Drive.

To access Coates Hall by wheelchair, park in the north or south lots of Coates Hall.
