See Broadway Shows On a Budget

Contrary to popular belief, catching great Broadway shows can actually be quite affordable.  The 2011-2012 Auditorium Theater Broadway Season looks pretty great and you won't want to miss out.  This year you'll be able to see Million Dollar Quartet, Billy Elliot The Musical, Shrek the Musical, Jersey Boys, and South Pacific.  If you just follow a few simple rules, you can see them all and get a great deal!

1.  Purchase a Season Ticket Package

The first way to save some cash is to look into purchasing a Season Ticket Package.  The Auditorium Theater offers discounted rates for buying a season pass rather than purchasing individual tickets. 

2.  Avoid Friday and Saturday

When purchasing a pass, keep in mind -- Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday night packages are the cheapest.  Don't worry, the shows are just as good during the week as they are on the weekends! 

3.  Choose Your Seat Wisely

If you're flexable about where you sit, you can save even more money.  The Auditorium Theater offers Season Ticket packages with Mid Price Orchestra Seating, Mid Price Balcony Seating, and very Low Priced Balcony Seating. 

Check out the chart below for 2011 Pricing.  For more information, check out the Auditorium Theater Website.
