Pricing as the Key to Attracting Students to the Performing Arts
There is a general assumption that young people do not attend arts events because ticket prices are too high. To test the validity of this assumption, a survey of students' attitudes toward attending the performing arts was conducted. The data revealed that whilst students are concerned about cost, the major barrier is the perception that arts events are boring. It was found that students will purchase tickets for arts events that are perceived as entertaining and allow socialisation. This work continues the discussion contained in the recently published paper by John W. O'Hagan on equal participation in the arts. Copyright Kluwer Academic Publishers 1997
