Struggling to find that elusive ticket? Asking yourself how can I book opera phantom ticket and get the best seat?
If you are a regular theatre goer or planning that special one off theatre trip, you are sure to want to get the best seats within your budget.
One big tip is to book in advance. Whether you are booking online or calling around, the earlier you book the better - especially when it is for a hugely popular musical such as Phantom of the Opera. Most of the long running shows are so well known all over the world that all those visitors flocking to London like to book a big West End show as a special part of their holiday as being a "must do" whilst in London. There is always something going on in London - this month for the Royal Wedding it is estimated that there will be 1.1 million visitors coming to London and looking ahead for the 2012 Olympics the estimate is an extra half a million visitors each day! So there is a lot of competition to get those good seats!
Big long running shows such as Phantom, Lion King, Les Mis, Blood Brothers, We Will Rock You, Wicked etc are extremely popular and are already booking tickets for dates into 2012 and leaving it to the last minute can often result in missing out or inferior seats.
Phantom will be celebrating its 25th Anniversary in October 2011 and is the highest grossing entertainment event of all time. The Lion King is one of the few shows that is great entertainment for all the family. It is now in its 12th year and still going strong with tickets for this summer selling out fast. Another family orientated show is Wicked, winner of many awards and breaking box office records around the world. Running since September 2006 it is currently booking until April 2012. Week after week these shows are selling out so booking ahead is the only way to guarantee you can get the seats you want.
Booking online makes it much easier to compare seats and offers and it is safe, easy, and convenient. You can search for the exact production that you want to see and book your tickets quickly and securely through a tried-and tested booking agency. You can reserve the exact seats you want. Choose a reputable agent that has a secure on-line booking system and is a full member of The Society of Ticket Agents and Retailers (STAR) but if you just can't find what you want then call up and don't be afraid to ask the agent for specific seats. Getting through to the theatre directly is nearly impossible so let somebody else do the work for you!
It is important to keep an eye on theatre news and regularly check online to see about the latest plays also. For a play starring a well-known film actor or by a renowned director, getting tickets for the hottest new show in town definitely means you need to be on the ball. Plays often have limited runs and sells tickets for preview performances at a discount prices before it's official opening and if you don't book as soon as those seats go on sale it can be tough to find tickets later on.
