Weston Playhouse announces special discount pricing as tickets go on sale

The Weston Playhouse Theatre Company is making single tickets for summer performances available for purchase immediately, an innovation it says will make its season of popular plays and musicals affordable for all audiences.

According to Stuart Duke, Weston's managing director, through the theater company's new V-Tix program, select seats to each MainStage performance are priced at $25. Some tickets to Weston's intimate OtherStages performance space at the Rod & Gun Club will be priced at $15.

Weston's 2013 MainStage season includes the British comedy “Educating Rita” June 25 - July 6; the rock musical “Next to Normal” July 11-27; the musical “42nd Street” Aug. 1-24; and, for the first time on the Weston stage, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” Aug. 29 - Sept. 11.

There are no restrictions on ordering, but the tickets must be ordered by phone at 802-824-5288.

Duke said that, in addition to the newly expanded V-Tix program, Weston is pricing all of its MainStage preview performances - typically the Thursday before the Friday opening of each new production at the Playhouse - at a flat $35.

OtherStages previews will be priced at $20.

Duke said audiences can look forward to two exciting new works debuting on Weston's OtherStages at the Weston Rod & Gun Club:

Winner of Weston's New Musical Award, “Loving Leo,” July 18 - Aug. 4, is a touching musical portrait of what it means to be family. “This Blessed Plot,” Aug. 15 - Sept. 1, features Obie Award winner Marc Wolf in a smart, funny play about the battle for free Shakespeare in Central Park.

For families, Weston's Young Company will perform “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Day” June 20 - July 7, also at the Rod & Gun Club, 982 Rte. 100.
