Advanced ticket deadline: Friday, Sept. 15 Tickets may be purchased at the Casper College Accounting/Cashier (8 a.m.-4:45 p.m.) and Gateway Café (7:30 a.m.-3 p.m.), both located in the Walter H. Nolte Gateway Center, third floor, as well as at the Union/University’s Tobin Dining Hall during regular meal times.
