A Christmas Carol Ticket Deal and Discount Theatre Offer
Two productions of the festive classic A Christmas Carol are about to hit the stage in Albuquerque, and here’s how to get discount tickets to both. Plus you can save with a deal on Albuquerque Theatre Guild Theatre Lovers Community for the holiday season.
Duke City Repertory Theatre at The Filling Station presents A Christmas Carol from November 29 to December 16, and this A Christmas Carol ticket deal gives you two adult tickets for the price of one. For Thursday performances you get TWO adult tickets for $10 (usually $10 each) and Friday to Sunday it’s TWO adult tickets for $19 instead of the regular price of $20 each.
The production is based on the Charles Dickens story and adapted and performed by John Hardy. Yep, one guy plays more than 25 roles in the play. (Talk about “One man in his time plays many parts.” Oh. We don’t need to. Will Shakespeare talked about it already…)
The 50% off ticket offer online is via Living Social, for a limited time and while seat availability lasts. Note that kids’ tickets for all performances are $5 if you buy them in the regular way, not with this special offer.
If you miss that deal (why would you? It’s a cracker) the cheapest day to go is Thursday, when tickets are $10 each for adults, or $5 for kids. On other days, tickets are $20 for adults, $12 for military, seniors, and students with ID, and kids still pay $5. If you buy those direct from the Duke City Rep online box office, there is also an addition $1.50 per ticket booking fee.
Performances are on Thursdays to Saturdays at 8 pm, plus Sunday matinees at 2 pm and you’ll find The Filling Station at 1024 4th Street, SW.
Over at the Adobe Theater, the holiday show is Christmas Classic Radio Theater presents: A Christmas Carol. The show runs from November 30 to December 16, 2012, with performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm, and on Sundays at 2 pm. Regular priced tickets are $15, or $13 for seniors and students. But if you buy tickets in advance for the opening weekend (November 30, and December 1 and 2) all tickets are reduced to $12.
Call the box office at (505) 898-9222 or book Adobe Theater tickets online – there’s an online booking fee of around $1 per ticket. The Adobe Theater is located at 9813 Fourth Street NW.
The Albuquerque Theatre Guild told us about this deal on a six-month membership for the Theatre Lovers Community, which gives you discounts at various member theatres, access to rehearsals and auditions, and special programs. A membership for the period January 1 to June 30, 2013, is priced at $17.50, or $15 for full-time students and seniors over age 62.
But right now they have a deal to buy TWO Theatre Lovers Community memberships for $27. If you buy now, they’ll also throw in December membership, at no additional cost. Could be a nice idea for a gift, and they’ll even send the membership card and a seasonal greeting on your behalf to the recipient, if you choose.
We do enjoy some fantastic theatre in Albuquerque, and even better when it’s on the cheap!
