PostHeaderIcon Lion King Visiting Schenectady, about to Roar in Proctors

Lion King will be Visiting Schenectady’s Proctors Theatre from February 22, 2011.

CEO Philip Morris predicted in December that “The Lion King” would sell out Proctors in Schenectady NY —a first for a month-long run at the theater. Now, with less than two weeks to go before the curtain rises on the Disney spectacular, Morris is not backing away from his prediction even though about 5,000 seats are still available.

The Lion King opens its 32-show run in Proctors Theatre on February 22, 2011 and Perform thru March 20, 2011.

The show should be a good antidote to the winter doldrums for downtown restaurants and other businesses.

Still, the term “sellout” isn’t always what it seems in the theater world, which seems appropriate for an industry built on illusion.

Because of obstructions in the extravagant show, Proctors cannot sell every seat in the house. Some seats are also held back in case of a last-minute problem, like a seat breaking after a matinee.

All told, Morris said there are 80,100 seats for “Lion King” over the course of 32 shows (were it not for obstructions and reserves, 84,544 seats would be available).

Even if not all 80,100 seats get snapped up, Morris said it would still be considered a “sellout” in the theater industry if Proctors comes within a percentage point of the total.

Stage hands have been busy stripping the historic theater of hanging lights and screens to prepare for the show. Trucks carrying props and other equipment are expected to roll into town on Sunday, Feb. 12.

PostHeaderIcon Lion King sales a roaring success in Schenectady, NY

Lion King will be visiting Schenectady’s Proctors Theatre from Tuesday, February 22, 2011 and performing through Sunday, March 20, 2011 with 32 performances.

Tickets are selling so fast for The Lion King at Proctors in Schenectady that it is a safe bet every show will sell out, which would be a first for a monthlong-run production at the historic theater.

Proctors CEO Philip Morris said slightly more than 75 percent of the seats have been sold since tickets went on sale to the public Nov. 14.

Hundreds showed up the first day, with some camping out overnight to score seats. Prices range from $20 to $80, but can be as high as $130 for special premium packages.

Morris knew the show would be popular, but said the sales pace is faster than expected. “With two months left before the show I can’t imagine it not selling out,” Morris said.

Morris expects Proctors will turn a profit on “The Lion King” based on a complicated formula that includes individual and group ticket sales, fees and weekly rent.
