BLOG : Tickets for Theatre
Friday 04 November 2011
Acquiring tickets for theatre can be to a certain extent a challenge if you are busy at work during the weekdays and to lazy to go to the box office to buy the tickets on the weekends. Plus, the price of last minute tickets from the box office can burn quite a big hole in the pocket. Thanks to the Internet and official ticketing websites present online, such problems no longer exist in the books of theatre patrons. These days all theatre lovers do is go online and get their hands on the theatre tickets for their favourite shows in a matter of minutes. The transaction is done using the credit card through a safe and secure system. What’s more is that one can buy tickets well in advance and even choose their seats through the website’s seating charts.
Many prefer shopping online in today’s busy times, as opposed to going personally to pick up any required items. Theatre tickets are no exceptions. A majority of theatre patrons are now switching to online procurement of play tickets, rather than standing in long queues outside the theatre venues at box offices. Another advantage of using this method is the convenience of time and place it offers. Imagine sitting in front of the TV with your laptop, just like you probably do every night after your tiring workday. This can be at any hour of the night or day. The only thing you need is to log on to an official ticketing website, click on the play of your choice, mention the number of tickets, the date you wish to see the show, the show time you want, select the seats you desire, and pay using your credit card. Ta-dah! You can your tickets up from the box office a little prior to the start of your show.
Sounds easy right? Well, this one’s easier done than said. These official ticketing websites offer a lot more than you think. First of all, theatre tickets on such sites can be found at great prices compared to box office rates for the same. Secondly, a majority of websites provide detailed information about the plays, giving first-time theatre goers a great choice and help in selecting an ideal first show for them. Thirdly, these websites provide tickets for a large number of venues across the city. Fourthly, you can find some awesome deals on such sites that can make the whole experience one that can’t be soon forgotten. For instance, you can buy a meal package that includes dinner or dessert at your favourite restaurant in the area in addition to the play. Buying such a package can turn any date into a special night of fun.
