Woody Allen will play Ruth Eckerd Hall on Dec. 30. Tickets are as little as $45, but a meet-and-greet will cost $250.

Ruth Eckerd Hall has announced its complete 2011-12 season for its Clearwater performance hall as well as the Capitol Theatre, and some big names are making plans to visit Tampa Bay.

Among the biggest: Woody Allen. The famed filmmaker trades in his camera for a clarinet and is bringing his New Orleans Jazz Band to Ruth Eckerd Hall on Dec. 30. Tickets range from $45 to $95, with very limited $250 seats that include a meet-and-greet. (Lest you think this is steep, Allen's regular gig on Mondays at the Carlyle Hotel in New York involves a $125 cover charge.)

Other highlights:

• Melissa Manchester, Nov. 4. (Capitol Theatre).

• George Thorogood & the Destroyers, Nov. 29.

• Michael McDonald & America, Dec. 10.

• Judy Collins and Arlo Guthrie, Dec. 15.

• Gregg Allman, Jan. 14.

• Liza Minnelli, Jan. 17.

• Patti LaBelle, Feb. 1.

• Mandy Patinkin, Feb. 15.

• Itzhak Perlman, March 4.

• Wilson Phillips, March 23 (Capitol Theatre).

• Tony Bennett, March 23.

• Martin Short, March 29.

• Debbie Reynolds, March 27.

• Yanni, April 26.
