Eastbourne Theatres is extending its ticket promotion for under 25s to encourage younger audiences into the Devonshire Park Theatre.
This scheme is now running for the spring season and if demand is strong the theatres may roll it out across the rest of the year.
Anyone under 25 can purchase a ticket for just £10 – a saving of more than 50 per cent.
It applies to the Devonshire Park Theatre, which has a particularly strong spring season for 2014 with some of the biggest touring drama shows on the way.
The Under-25 ticket applies to all the following: a stunning adaptation of Sebastian Faulks’s deeply moving love story Birdsong (February 12-15); comedy with the brilliant Warwick Davis (Life’s too Short) who stars in the hilarious new version of See How They Run (March 17-22) and the Gothic classic Bram Stoker’s Dracula (February 18-22).
Other shows included in this offer are: Kindertransport (February 25-March 1); an all-male version of HMS Pinafore (March 3-8), and Poirot in Agatha Christies Black Coffee (March 10-15).
There is also a brilliant, explosive adaptation of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night (March 25-29) by the Filter in association with the RSC; Morcambe (April 1-5) based on the life of the brilliant Eric Morcambe; In Praise of Love (April 8-12) presented by the acclaimed Talking Scarlett; Classic Ghost Stories (April 22-26); and Oliver Goldsmith comedy She Stoops to Conquer (April 29-May 3).
Theatre general manager Gavin Davis said. “We are really excited with this new ticket price promotion for the under 25s.
“We strive to make the theatres as accessible as possible to everyone with a range of ticket prices.
“We’ve worked with the producers of the spring season to make this possible and very much hope it is a success to enable us to continue this discount ticket scheme.”
