The new box office hours are a result of recent collaboration with Albert Lea Community Education, ACT and the City of Albert Lea. Community Ed staff, which recently moved offices to the Marion Ross Performing Arts Center, will assist in selling tickets during these new box office hours.

“We are so happy that we are now able to provide this expanded service to our patrons and make it more convenient to purchase tickets to the many performances and events held at the Marion Ross Performing Arts Center every year,” Mary Ellen Johnson, president of the ACT Board of Directors said.
