A lot of people who’ve purchased tickets for a popular show at the Steven Tanger Center in Greensboro have done a double take when seeing the ticket prices, however, now two programs will make attending events at the venue more economical by offering discounted tickets in some situations.
For one, the Tanger Center has arranged two performances of the upcoming run of FROZEN The Musical to be deemed Family Nights. During those nights – which will be on Thursday, May 25 and Thursday, June 1 – each family can purchase up to eight tickets, buy one, get one free.
This is meant as a way to make the theater more accessible to the community. For more information regarding Family Nights at the center, as well as instructions how to purchase tickets, visit www.tangercenter.com/frozenfamily.
Also, the High Point Public Library Children’s Division has launched a “Borrow an Experience” program in partnership with the Tanger Center.
According to a Monday, March 27 press release from the library, the program “allows children ages 4 to 12 to check out tickets to local museums, science centers, theaters, recreation facilities and other businesses in the High Point area just as they would check out a book.” It adds, “The newest partner to the Borrow an Experience program, the Tanger Center, is a hub for quality educational and recreational theater performances. Through the Borrow an Experience Program, they will reach children interested in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics).”
The Borrow an Experience program is in keeping with the library’s mission to “nurture the joy of reading, share the power of knowledge, strengthen the sense of community and enhance cultural and economic vitality.”
Since the cost of admission to the center can be a big hurdle, this program attempts to offer families greater access to “high-quality experiences.”
Library official state they are very pleased the Tanger Center has signed up with the Borrow An Experience Program.
Other community organizations interested in supporting the program are encouraged to contact the High Point Public Library Children’s Division. For more information on the program and participation, you can contact Sarah Nareau at 336- 883-3667.
Even with sky high ticket prices and Tickmaster taking a large bite outta funds that could be used to pay off this Performance Arts Palace it is a drop in the bucket compared to what all tax payers will be on the hook for the next decade and more. What a monument to our Mandate Mayors facade of a perfect community. Rampant homelessness ,hungry children, and a crumbled police and infrastructure will be part of the legacy from Matt Brown and our Mayor for life.
