Celebrate this year’s Free Night of Theater by entering to win free tickets to your choice of performance from theaters across the valley. NowPlayingUtah.com has organized the event, which gives participants the opportunity to enter the contest September 23 through October 7. With shows performed by some of Utah’s best acting companies at locations like Pioneer Theatre Company, Hale Centre Theatre and Utah universities, selections can be made from classic favorites and new standouts. Choose from “The Importance of Being Earnest,” “Willy Wonka,” “Little Shop of Horrors,” “Arcadia,” “Winter,” or a number of other stellar productions. Winners will be notified on October 14 and performances will be held October 20 through November 13.
“We are excited to be able to again offer the Free Night of Theater to open the world of live performance to new audience members in Utah,” said Pat Holmes of NowPlayingUtah.com. “We have some pretty amazing theater productions this year with 11 generous theaters providing free tickets to 12 different productions.”
Created to inspire more people to attend theater performances, Free Night of Theater hopes to bring out first-time attendees, whether they are new to specific companies or theater in general. This year they have expanded the event to a month long opportunity. Instead of being restricted to selecting a theater performance on a specific night, patrons are now able to fit the performances around their schedules.
