This group provides an opportunity for all of us to get together and experience live arts and theater with others who have a similar passion.
We also strive to support theater and the arts in the region, mostly smaller theater companies.
These theaters need every dollar of ticket sales possible. In fact, they receive only about half of their revenue from ticket sales, so even a full-price ticket covers only half of the actual cost to produce a show.
For that reason, we encourage members to buy tickets through our group, rather than through online discount tickets sites like Goldstar.
We are usually able to offer our members a group ticket price through the theater box office. This price is generally only a few dollars more than sites like Goldstar after the service fee is added. But those few extra dollars are critical for these theaters to survive.
By going through the box offices, we not only provide more support, we also are creating close relationships with these theaters. Down the road, that could lead to some cool special events.
Thank you for being in the group. We look forward to seeing you at the next Meetup.
