Mesa Arts Center sold out 10 shows this past season. Time will tell whether its 2011-12 lineup, announced Friday, can elicit similar ticket sales.

The venue has pinned down more than 30 acts for the coming season. Acclaimed bluegrass band The Grascals will kick things off Sept. 30. Other highlights:

• Children’s TV show “Choo-Choo Soul,” live on stage with Genevieve Goings: Oct. 8, $25

• kd lang: Oct. 16, $56-$76

• Vince Gill: Oct. 23, $52-$67

• Bill Cosby: March 30, 2012, $45-$75

Tickets go on sale to the general public at noon June 26. A MAC membership, starting at $50 and available anytime, allows tickets to be purchased now.

The “Shop Mesa, Get the Arts” program, which allows shoppers to trade in the sales tax on their Mesa store receipts for buy-one-get-one ticket offers at the box office, remains in effect for the 2011-12 season.
