— Some venues are offering options for people who missed weekend performances and sporting events in Durham and Raleigh due to the snow storm.

At the Durham Performing Arts Center about 1,000 people attended the Saturday evening performance of "Mamma Mia." The matinee was canceled after a storm left streets coated in snow and ice.

Some ticket holders anticipated the storm's effect and exchanged their tickets ahead of time, spokeswoman Rachel Gragg said. They were offered tickets to a future DPAC show.

Gragg said the decision to play on Saturday night was in line with inclement weather policies at the RBC Center, Raleigh’s Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts, The Greensboro Coliseum, Charlotte’s Blumenthal Performing Arts Center and other event facilities.

DPAC officials said Monday that people who couldn't make it to either performance should call the venue for information on ticket options.

In Raleigh, Tift Merritt and Kris Kristofferson headlined the PineCone Winter Music Festival at Meymandi Concert Hall. The Sunday portion of the two-day event was postponed. William Lewis, executive director of the Piedmont Council of Traditional Music and the sponsor of the event, said PineCone would contact ticket holders individually about a revised schedule and refund information.

People who had tickets to Saturday's Carolina Hurricanes match up with the Chicago Blackhawks can call the RBC Center and exchange unused tickets for a future game, officials said Monday.

"Xanadu" ticket holders who didn't make the show at Raleigh Memorial Auditorium over the weekend can call the box office to exchange their tickets for a different show, officials said.
