The Southeastern Illinois Cultural Arts Series has been bringing quality cultural experiences to Southern Illinois since 1979.  Performances range from musical groups and theatrical shows to dance groups and authors. 

We are proud of the fact that we have kept ticket prices low in keeping with our motto “Great Shows! Great Value! Close to Home!”  General admission is still just $10 for adults, $5 for students.  A family season ticket costs $70 (parents and children) or $40 for one adult.  

We also offer levels of giving for those willing to help subsidize our programs: $100 sponsors receive three season tickets; $150 patrons, four season tickets.  
Season tickets may be purchased at the first concert or ordered by mail.  For additional information, please call 618-252-5400, ext. 2486 or 618-841-4649.
