Cheap tickets at Capital Rep

capital_rep_logo.gifIf you're looking for some "cheap fun" this 4th of July weekend, but fireworks and potentially soggy barbecues aren't your thing, here's something you might want to try. Local theaters have a little more trouble filling seats on big summer holidays.

Bad for them -- good for you.

Capital Rep always offers half price tickets on whatever side seats are left unsold ten minutes before a show --they call them rush tickets. The problem with waiting for rush tickets is that sometimes you'll get closed out, and other times the seats aren't the greatest. This weekend you've got a much better shot at a good seat for half price. They're also offering $20 side seats through July 12, which, depending on your seat and what time you go, could be an even better deal than rush tickets.

If you'd rather sit in the center and you're under 30, you can get a $10 discount on any seat (you don't have to wait until right before curtain) -- and again, this weekend you'll have more to choose from.

Their summer show is Shear Madness, a comedy/mystery in which the audience solves the crime.

Yes, Capital Rep does advertise with AOA. But that's not why we're posting this info. We just thought it was something you might like to know.
