As a Norris Center member, I was able to purchase my tickets yesterday (Friday). I would recommend telephoning the Norris Center before coming out to see if there are tickets remaining. With members, swim team members, and school district employees all eligible to purchase ahead of time, the number of tickets remaining for the general public was expected to be small.

If you are planning to attend, Norris Center employees were recommending that you dress very lightly as the pool will be jam packed with spectators. The rumor I heard was that 800 tickets were sold for each show, but for the life of me I can't figure out how that many people will fit. It's not a large facility.
