Sally Struthers, Paula Poundstone headline Majestic Theater's new season

From comedians Paula Poundstone and the Smothers Brothers to Great Country Night and Sally Struthers of  television's "All in the Family" starring in the musical comedy "Nunsense," tickets for Gettysburg College's Majestic Theater 2008-2009 season of live entertainment will go on sale June 12 at noon.

The October-to-May season will run the gamut from stars of Broadway and the Russian ballet to Grammy Award-winning singers, acrobats from China and "Seussical the Musical."

For information and to purchase tickets, go to, call 717-337-8200 or visit the box office at the theater, 25 Carlisle St., just north of Gettysburg's Lincoln Square. Box office hours are Monday through Saturday from noon to 7:30 p.m. and Sundays from 3 to 7:30 p.m.

"This season is absolutely jam-packed with amazing entertainment from all over the world," said Jeffrey W. Gabel, founding executive director of the Majestic Theater at the Jennifer and David LeVan Performing Arts Center. "Every ticket you purchase saves you gas money because you don't need to drive to Baltimore or Washington, D.C. to see these international stars." Several shows will sell out quickly based, Gabel predicted, based on robust pre-sales to current Majestic members. Membership information is also available on the theater's website.

The Majestic Theater at the Jennifer and David LeVan Performing Arts Center is owned and operated by Gettysburg College in partnership with the Greater Adams County Community. The 2008-2009 season will be the fourth since the Majestic's $16-million historic restoration to its original 1925 opulence.

Gettysburg College is a highly selective four-year residential college of liberal arts and sciences with approximately 2,600 students. It is located on a 200-acre campus adjacent to Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania. The college was founded in 1832.
