A few tickets are still available for Broadway star Audra McDonald’s concert Sunday in Fresno, but the show will be sold out by 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, the Good Company Players box office told GV Wire.

McDonald, who got her performing start with Good Company Players and went on to become a star of stage and screen, will perform in the Warnors Theatre concert that celebrates Good Company Players’ 50th anniversary.

The concert will begin at 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $75 per person plus an $8 handling fee and may be purchased here. The theater is at the corner of Fulton and Tuolumne streets in downtown Fresno

On Monday, McDonald will be at the Roosevelt School for the Performing Arts for a question-and-answer session with students starting at 11 a.m. The event will be held in the school’s Audra McDonald Theatre — McDonald is a Roosevelt alum.

The session is open to the general public, but only students will be allowed to participate in the Q&A, a school official said.
