Hello Theatre Lovers!

I apologize for this very long email, but I have a lot to cover! Although some of our Meetups aren't until March, all of our shows have ticket purchasing deadlines in February. I am opening up all shows to anyone who wants to go, regardless of whether you RSVPd on our Meetup page yet or not.

Several people have been having trouble buying tickets through the Playhouse website. Here is some additional information I learned today. In some cases it is a browser issue. It seems to work fine with Explorer and Firefox, but Chrome users are having problems. Try changing your browser if you are using Chrome. Also, just a reminder to make sure that our MEETUP code is typed into the Promo Code box on the upper right side of the Playhouse website screen before purchasing tickets.

 

Thursday, February 14 - Gem of the Ocean at Cygnet's Old Town Theatre

PLUS complimentary wine tasting for those 21 and older before the show.

Invite your friends! No ticket limit or deadline. Buy tickets till they're SOLD OUT!

FREE READINGS THROUGH MARCH 3 AT THE LA JOLLA PLAYHOUSE

Since all seats are free, you don't need a meetup code. They are free to everyone. But you do need to reserve seats, using the links below. As of now, I am not able to commit to any, as group meetups, but feel free to post on the Message Board if you are looking for someone to go to a particular show with you. These are in small theatres, with very limited amount of seats.

As of January, I took over paying dues for this group. It is a requirement of Meetup. Paying for one month is $19. Paying for three months at a time is $45 or $15 per month. Paying for six months is $72 or $12 per month. I have been given $20 so far from group members to go towards group dues. If you would like to contribute $1, $2, $5, $10 or whatever works for you and your budget, it is much appreciated. You can give me cash or checks to me at a meetup, or if preferred mail it to me. So far I have received 2 contributions of $5 each and one for $10. Thank you to those that have contributed! I know things are tight for people and that not everyone will be able to do this, but just wanted to open it up to the group. I will keep you posted on what we bring in. I didn't list people's names that donated, because I didn't ask permission to do so. But... you know who you are and... thank you!

The fastest way to contact me is via email, although you are, of course welcome to post on our page. Looking forward to seeing you at the theatre!

Take care,

Sindi
