beautiful theater," she said, "a beautiful
facility...and the size is wonderful,
the people don't seem so far away."
Lavin was in no way disappointed
with the size of the audience for the
company's production of Moliere's
Sganarelle, an audience that filled
scarcely half of the Power Center's
seats. She noted that a crowd of that
size was actually very respectable for a
theatrical presentation on the night of
the Fourth of July.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Singer Michael Jackson said
yesterday he will donate to charity his money from his
family's upcoming concert tour and said he no longer wants
fans to be required to mail in $120 for a chance to buy tickets.
"I want you to know that when I first agreed to tour, I
decided to donate all the money I make from our performan-
ces to charity," Jackson said in a brief news conference.
Neither Jackson nor his manager, Frank DiLeo, said how
much money might be given to charity.
There have been published reports that Jackson and his
brothers are guaranteed as much as $40 million.
After Jackson's appearance, promoters announced a list of
more cities on the tour, which begins tonight at Arrowhead
Stadium in Kansas City. The revised schedule includes per-
formances Aug. 25-26 at the Pontiac Silverdome.
Jackson, wearing sunglasses and his trademark glittering
outfit, said he had asked tour officials to arrange a new
ticket-distribution process, one that no longer requires a $120
mail order for a block of four $30 tickets.
Prospective buyers had to send in a $120 money order to get
in the ticket lottery. People not picked at random to get
tickets wouldn't get their money back for several weeks.
"There has also been a lot of talk about the promoter
holding money for tickets that didn't sell," Jackson said,
reading from a statement. "I've asked our promoter to end
the mail order ticket system as soon as possible so that no one
will pay money unless they get a ticket."
Tour promoter Chuck Sullivan said that beginning with
the group's appearance in Jacksonville, Fla., later this mon-
th, tickets will be sold over the counter. He said ticket prices
had not been changed but that fans will be able to buy one or
two tickets rather than a block of four.
Jackson said he felt "great concern" that many youngsters
who wanted to see him and his brothers in concert were
having trouble getting tickets.
"We've worked a long time to make this show the best it
can be," he said. "Buy we know a lot of kids are having
trouble getting tickets. The other day I got a letter from a girl
in Texas named Ladonnia Jones. She'd been saving her
money from odd jobs to buy a ticket, but with the current
tour system she'd have to buy four tickets and she couldn't
When Jackson finished his statement, he left without an-
swering questions, waving his gloved hand and saying"Hi."
Hundreds of children and adults congregated outside the
room where the news conference was held, hoping to get a
glance at Jackson. When he and three of his brothers ap-
peared momentarily, young girls screamed "Michael!
Earlier yesterday, Mayor Richard Berkley and Randy
Jackson distributed the first of 1,500 free tickets to this
weekend's concerts for disadvantaged or handicapped
"Speaking on behalf of my brothers and I, we're so happy
to be a part of this," Randy told about 150 people gathered for
the ceremony outside the Kansas City Housing Authority Of-
fice. "This means very much to us. We want everyone to see
the show ... because it's going to be spectacular."
