I know I have blogged about this before, but I am going to say it again! If you are in the San Antonio area, you need to get season passes to the Magik Theatre! ( www.magiktheatre.org) It is the best deal around and they put on the best plays...our whole family has loved them! In the next week, they will be announcing next season's line up, but we are renewing our passes!
It works like this: you pay $99 (at least last season was that price) and get 36 tickets to use as you see fit. You can use 4 tickets and see each of their nine shows. You can use 12 tickets on one play and bring a bunch of friends (great birthday party material). You can split them up however you want! Today we went to see The Phantom of the Alamo (a play on The Phantom of the Opera) and had extra tickets that needed to get used, so we invited six other people to see it with us!
The great thing about the season passes is that, like today when there were HUNDREDS of children with day cares or summer programs attending, they had reserved the first four rows for season ticket holders! How cool is that? Another thing: we get there about 30 minutes earlier than we really need to because of the ginormous playscape outside the theatre! The kids love to play on it and it has tons of benches with shade to watch.
All in all, it's the best bargain in town! I highly recommend you getting your season passes and enjoying some fabulous plays throughout the year!
