Sign up for this Albuquerque Theatre Guild promo by September 30, 2012, for a chance at free theatre tickets!

The annual Free Night of Theatre campaign has been running nationally for some years in other cities, but as far as I’m aware this is the first time Albuquerque has participated. Yay!

The Albuquerque Free Night of Theatre is essentially a lottery – you sign up free at the link through September 30 and choose up to five live theatre performances you would like to see. People who register may win pairs of tickets to any, some, or all of the performances they select – or they may get none at all, I assume.

The performances are all by participating Albuquerque Theatre Guild member theatres for productions taking to the stage during October and November 2012. It’s an opportunity to try out a theatre you’ve never been to before, or for anyone who’s never even been to the theatre at all – here’s your chance to get completely free tickets.

The free ticket values vary from $12 to $35 each, and performances include:

  • 9 to 5: The Musical at Albuquerque Little Theatre
  • Murder at Lighthouse Point at East Mountain Center for Theatre – including dinner!
  • Annie at the Rodey Theatre
  • The Jewel in the Manuscript at Adobe Theater
  • Burn This at Aux Dog Theatre
  • The Haunting of Hill House at Aux Dog Theatre
  • Finger Mouth by the Tricklock Performance Laboratory
  • The History of Asking the Wrong Question at N4th Theater
  • The Waiting Room by Mother Road Theatre Company at the Filling Station
  • ….and several more.

Register for the Albuquerque Free Night of Theatre at the link. After I registered my contact info, the form didn’t immediately take me to the theatre selections. So if the same happens to you, click on the Edit Your Personal Ticket Entry tab at the sign up page – then you’ll see the options available.

Remember, it is a lottery, so there’s no guarantee, although I gather that choosing a theatre you’ve never been to before increases your chance of winning free tickets. (How do they know where we’ve been? Spooky.)  I’m also not sure how many free tickets each person gets. Hopefully a pair or more, but I’ve got a message out to the Albuquerque Theatre Guild to check and I’ll update here.

UPDATE: ABQ Theatre Guild confirms that the giveaway is for pairs of tickets, and that 12 Theatres have contributed 123 pairs of tickets to 44 performances of 15 productions. Some of the performances don’t have many people competing for them, so if you enter you have a good chance for a pair of free theatre tickets.



$10 Tickets to NHCC Play for ABQ on the Cheap Readers

Comments Off on $10 Tickets to NHCC Play for ABQ on the Cheap Readers

Get $2 off tickets to performances of Miss Margarida’s Way at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in July 2010, in a special offer for Albuquerque on the Cheap readers!

Miss Margarida’s Way has become an international classic play, produced in more than 30 countries. Written by Brazilian playwright Roberto Athayde, it’s described as funny and absurdist, with political undertones (apparently it was closed down by the authorities after its 1973 premier in Brazil.) It also involves audience interaction – Miss Margarida is a schoolteacher and the audience is her “class”! 

Miss Margarida’s Way opens on July 15, 2010, with a run to July 25. This is the first time it’s been performed in Albuquerque, in partnership between Albuquerque’s Camino Real Productions and the National Hispanic Cultural Center. (Then they go on tour to Mexico!)

Regular tickets are $12, but in a special offer for ABQ on the Cheap readers you can get $2 off, bringing each ticket priced down to $10

(This is the same discount price paid by seniors, students, and members of the NHCC & Albuquerque Theatre Guild.)

How to get your discount tickets: Mention Albuquerque on the Cheap at the Box Office (505-724-4771).
You can only get the $10 tickets when you buy direct from the NHCC box office, not via 3rd party ticket agents.

  • When: Miss Margarida’s Way plays on Thurs/Fri/Sat/Sun from July 15 to July 25, 2010
  • Where: Wells Fargo Auditorium at the National Hispanic Cultural Center
  • Note: Play includes some adult content and language.

The National Hispanic Cultural Center is located at 1701 4th Street SW, Albuquerque.
