Comments Off on Disney’s The Lion King Cheap Tickets for Students

Disney’s The Lion King is currently on stage in Albuquerque at Popejoy Hall, and students can get cheap tickets if they join the rush!

The Lion King plays at Popejoy Hall until October 28, and although regular tickets range in price from $52.50 to $152.50, students can get tickets for $27.50 during The Lion King student rush on selected performances.

The student rush tickets are available one hour before curtain time, for the evening performances on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays.  You need to take Student ID to prove your eligibility – that includes students at UNM and CNM, Albuquerque Public Schools and Rio Rancho Public Schools, and indeed all students with ID from anywhere!

The student rush tickets are NOT available for Friday evening shows, all day Saturday, or the Sunday matinees.

See The Lion King performance times here, and be at the Popejoy Hall Box Office at the entrance to Popejoy Hall one hour prior to curtain. (I’d turn up earlier, there could be a line!) Take valid student ID, and each student can only buy one ticket.

The Tony Award-winning Broadway show features Elton John and Tim Rice’s familiar score, including the Oscar-winning song Can You Feel The Love Tonight and Circle of Life.

Hope some students feel the love by snagging some discount tickets, and have a roaring good time at The Lion King!

Thanks to Suzanne for tipping us off about the student rush tickets!



$5 Student Rush Tickets: Catgut Strung Violin

Comments Off on $5 Student Rush Tickets: Catgut Strung Violin

Tricklock Company presents "Catgut Strung Violin"

In case you have no idea what that headline means, let us explain.

First, the deal: students get $5 rush rate tickets 5 minutes before curtain at each performance (except the opening night gala).

Second, the work: Catgut Strung Violin is Tricklock Company‘s newest production, and it’s a doozie. An original work created by Tricklock members Kevin Elder and Alex Knight, along with guest artist Charles Gamble, Catgut Strung Violin is the hilarious story of an unlikely hero’s journey through the foxholes, full of physicality reminiscent of the great comedians of silent film. The play is a surreal work that explores the horrors and absurdities of war through our hero, Anton, and his cherished violin.

For those who either aren’t students or don’t want to take a chance on whether or not tickets will be available at curtain, shows cost $18 general admission, $12 students and seniors, and can be reserved by calling 254-7716.

The performance runs May 7 through June 7. Thursdays through Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 2:00pm, at the Auxiliary Dog Art Theatre, 3011 Monte Vista Blvd NE (near UNM), Albuquerque.
