Comments Off on 50% Off Two Theatre Tickets to Wooden Snowflakes

Get two tickets to Wooden Snowflakes for $20 for performances by Duke City Repertory Theatre between December 8 – 18, 2011. It’s a time limited deal available through December 1.

The half price deal on two tickets is to see Wooden Snowflakes, in a production by Duke City Repertory Theatre at The Kosmos – aka The Factory on 5th Art Space on Fifth Street NW.  The play by Catherine Bush is about a world-weary and cynical woman finding the true meaning of Christmas when stranded one winter in a cabin with a mysterious stranger. Although the play sounds to be ultimately life-affirming, about finding faith and belief in love, goodness, and holiday spirit, it is not recommended for young kids – they recommend ages 13 upwards.

Usual prices are $20 per adult ticket, or $12 for students, seniors, and military. For kids aged 12 – 17, tickets are $5. So the two tickets for $20 offer obviously scores best savings if you want two adult tickets. Call it half price tickets, call it Buy One Get One Free…. either way it’s a nice little saving and might inspire a theatre visit if you wouldn’t shell out full price.

Show dates are at 8 pm on December 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, and 17, with Sunday matinees at 2 pm on December 11 and 18.  You can pick which date you want when booking the deal via this link to Living Social.

The offer closes on December 1, so if you want tickets, nab them soon!

I certainly feel like a world-weary woman at times, and the idea of being stranded in a cabin in the dead of winter sounds rather peaceful, as long as the cabin is well-stocked with breakfast burritos and Ben & Jerry’s….

Albuquerque Magic Show: Half Price Tickets

Comments Off on Albuquerque Magic Show: Half Price Tickets

Get 50% off VIP tickets for the Albuquerque Magic Show on November 6, 2011, priced at $15 instead of the regular $30. ***UPDATE on 10/21: This deal has now sold out. But you can still get regular price show tickets…

I love magic tricks, and the Albuquerque Magic Show from November 4 – 6 at the South Broadway Cultural Center should conjure up some family fun with Hollywood magic artists. Performers including Christopher Hart, the former “chief illusion supervisor” for David Copperfield’s tour. (I too consider myself an “illusion supervisor” when I try to make my pay checks stretch to meet my bills. Know that feeling?)

Hart performed for Johnny Carson, Michael Jackson, and Muhammad Ali, and he played Thing, the disembodied hand, in various Addams Family movies. Clearly a man of many talents. He’s joined by award-winning magician Danny Cole and comic-magician Matt Marcy, and finally we hit the 505 with Albuquerque magician Jordan Jonas. Also expect strolling magicians as the audience arrives.

Regular tickets to the Albuquerque Magic Show’s five performances cost $20 for adults, $10 for kids, and $30 for VIP seating, whatever your age. (Regular online ticket purchases require a small additional service charge of about $1 to $2 per ticket, depending on the ticket type.)

But there’s a *deal* for 50% off VIP tickets at $15 for the Sunday November 6 afternoon show at 12:30 pm. (Click the Families tab at left on the link page.) The VIP tickets include a show poster, a magic trick to take home, and of course, preferred seating. The half price ticket deal is running via Albuquerque Living Social under the Families tab. As there is obviously limited space at the show, I’d buy sooner rather than later if you’re interested. The discount tickets are limited to ten per person.

Bottom line: the half price VIP ticket deal is cheaper than regular adult tickets, and also a good deal on the upgrade for kid’s tickets, assuming that show time works for you.

Even if you don’t take advantage of the discount tickets, the regular ticket prices seem splurge-worthy to see such great magicians.

South Broadway Cultural Center is located at 1025 Broadway SE.

New Mexico Brew Fest Discount Tickets

Filed under Balloon Fiesta, Food, Live Performances, Music

Early bird tickets for the New Mexico Brew Fest will be available on August 12, 2010, for $15.

Beer lovers, here’s an offer to get in a froth about. Buy your New Mexico Brew Fest and Music Showcase ticket for $15 in an early bird special… that’s a saving of up to 50% on the regular ticket price.

To get the early bird tickets, trot down to Marble Brewery on Thursday August 12 from 7 – 9 pm.  They’ll be selling them there, we’re not sure if there will be any on sale anywhere else/later yet.  Rivet Gang will be playing at Marble Brewery so you might as well hang around for a bevvy, get yourself in the mood for Brew Fest.

New Mexico Brew Fest takes place from noon to 7 pm on October 2, 2010, at Villa Hispana, Expo New Mexico, home of the State Fair.  (That’s the first day of Balloon Fiesta.) Sounds like it’ll be a right old knees-up, with microbrews from New Mexico breweries, live music, and food from vendors including Dagmar’s, Pizza Van Go, and Chef Sam Etheridge’s Ambrozia Catering.

Apparently 500 early bird tickets will be on sale at $15 (they’re not available on the NM Brew Fest website), then the regular purchase price will be $25 in advance, and $30 on the day.

Here’s how and when to get your discount ticket to NM Brew Fest:

  • When: Thursday August 12, 2010
  • Time: 7 – 9 pm

Hard to imagine that all 500 early bird tickets will sell out on Thursday night, although they just might. We’ll follow up with the organizers to see where and how to get them later if any are left.

Thanks to reader Beth for the tip, via an email from Local iQ magazine, presenters of New Mexico Brew Fest.

NOTE: If you like this deal, see how you can also get $5 off Albuquerque Hopfest tickets, if you buy by August 15.
