Scalpers raising prices of tickets to Dothan events

DOTHAN, Al. (WTVY) Buyer beware!

Lately, people have been over paying for tickets to the Dothan Civic Center and Opera House.

Director Marshall Perry says second party sites have been buying tickets and jacking up the prices, which is legal.

He wants to make sure people go to the civic center's official website for tickets, that way you make sure you get the best price.

He says last week, someone paid over $150 dollars for two tickets to The Nutcracker but the actual price was $50 for 2 tickets.

Their website is DothanCivicCenter.org
