Free Night of Theater

You can head over to Free Night of Theater 2009 to find out what shows are being offered in your area and details on how to get two free tickets to local shows. There are participating theaters in over 120 communities nationwide.

In my area, many of the shows are weeknight shows, but there is one Friday evening and one Sunday afternoon. You can get two tickets per reservation. If you are looking to bring the family, you might want to contact the website or the theater to find out if you can request tickets in the same area across multiple reservations. Otherwise, it might be that you can go to the show, but you sit separately.

The event is brought to you by Theatre Communications Group. They are the national organization for the not-for-profit American theater. They developed this program to attract new audiences and raise public awareness about live theater. It appears that this is the fourth year for the program and that it has grown each year.

The tickets will become available on, or around, October 1st in participating areas. Check for your community, in my area the tickets are available starting October 3rd. The shows themselves are supposed to start October 15th. Some in my area are playing as late as November.
