PENN Presents is now offering Rush tickets for Irish, American-born fiddler Eileen Ivers. She will perform at 7 p.m. on February 10 at Irvine Auditorium.

Dance Affiliates and PENN Presents will also make Rush tickets available, starting February 8, for Susan Marshall & Company as part of the 2001-2002 Dance Celebration Series. This troupe will perform its newly commissioned work, One and Only You, a humorous and poignant romantic work about a writer teetering between his real life and the fictional world of the mystery novel he is writing. Shows are on Valentine's Day, February 14 at 7:30 p.m. as well as February 15 at 8 p.m., and February 16 at 2 & 8 p.m. at Annenberg Center's Zellerbach Theatre.

Faculty and staff Rush tickets are $20 each, while student Rush tickets are $15, for each of these performances.

Rush tickets are limited in number and subject to availability and may be purchased beginning five days prior to the performance date at the Annenberg Center Box Office as well as 1/2 hour prior to performances at the venue box office. A Penn ID is required. Limit: 2 tickets per ID, plus faculty & staff may also purchase student Rush tickets for their children.
