'A Raisin in the Sun' Rehearsal 'Pay What You Can' Arden Theatre Wed Mar 6 8PM

The final dress rehearsal of A Raisin in the Sun, a Pay What You Can performance, will be held on Wednesday, March 6 at 8pm with all proceeds benefiting the African American Museum in Philadelphia.

See the news release below.  If you have questions, call the box office at[masked]-1122.

http://www.ardentheatre.org/news/2013_0131.html

Here is the way it works.  You can not purchase your tickets online in advance for this rehearsal performance.  You purchase your ticket at the box office that evening (they do not give you a ticket with an assigned seat), then you get in line.  Suggested amount is $20 and you put your CASH in a donation envelope; then they give you a ticket, assuming there are still seats.  Suggest you get your tickets an hour before - so by 7pm - or earlier if the box office is open earlier.  Last time, they sold out 20 minutes before the show and those who arrived after that date were disappointed.  Seating is first in, so if you want the choice of best seats, you then get in line in front of the door when it forms.

Please be advised that I am not able to get your tickets in advance for you, can not hold them for you, nor save you a seat.  If we stand in line together (with our tickets in hand) we can enter together and sit together, if that is your preference.

If you want to meet the others, look for my Meetup Sign.

Details

Arden Theatre Company continues its 25th Anniversary season with A Raisin in the Sun.

On the F. Otto Haas Stage March 7 - April 21, 2013

SUMMARY:
In Chicago’s South Side in 1959, a life insurance check sent to the Younger’s home arrives with the promise of change. This African American family then considers buying a house in the all-white Clybourne Park, but conflicting aspirations and a neighborhood’s intolerance threaten the dream’s reality. Walter Dallas (The Piano Lesson, Blue Door) directs this classic drama that paved the way for the African American voice to be heard on stage.

CASH ONLY, PAY WHAT YOU CAN AT THE DOOR, OPEN SEATING

We can meet for drinks or a lite bite before the performance, so just let me know to make this happen.  E-mail me directly or post a note on the site.

    I LOVED the play/rehearsal! Unfortunately I did not meet anyone from this meetup group, but wanted to chime in and get everyone else's take on the rehearsal? Who came, who saw, who "conquered?" (LOL couldn't help but get that out of the way ;p)

    Arden Theater contacted me to clarify today. The African American Museum in Philadelphia did get tickets to sell, so you can purchase them through them if still available, assuring you of a seat, or you can Pay What You Can at the Box Office. The F. Otto Haas Stage is one of their larger stages, but that being said, this performance is very popular. Again, your choice. If you want the PWYC option, suggest you be there when the box office opens at 7pm.

    Do not buy your ticket on a web site called aamp.ticketleap as you will be cheated out of $23.50. This looks like the web site for the African Museum which is aampmuseum.org and therefore looks legitimate. I notified the Arden Theater and they will investigate this apparent fraud on Monday. If it is not a fraud, it is clearly a misunderstanding; let's hope so. In any case, you must appear at the box office to purchase your ticket as explained in detail here. We have done this before with the Arden and other theaters conduct PWYC the same way - contributions are taken at the box office.

    Spring Forward: The clocks are set ahead one hour during Spring Forward. In 2013, this occurs on Sunday, March 10. Then some of us may be inclined to go out after the show. The next and last show is A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC, playing from May 23 - Jun 30.

    Deborah, an answer to your question about bringing guests, this is open to the public so anyone can come. If you bring guests, you will want to read this carefully and make sure they understand that there is always a risk of tickets selling out. This is not really a meetup event in the sense that everyone will socialize together, sit together, etc.. I am offering the opportunity for those who desire to, to meet up with me and others before the performance for a drink/snack and also to gather with me and others at the box office and try to sit together. Since I am going to all these PWYC Arden Theater performances, I wanted to share this oppotunity with members. Darlene

    I would like to bring a couple of guest with me. Is that OK for this event?
