50p Tickets Revival

Saturday saw the first of three 50p ticket sales planned for 2012.


Echoing the 50p sales of Citz past, this was designed to provide absolutely anyone with the chance to see our work, provided they have 50p and the patience to join a queue. The offer was revived by new Artistic Director Dominic Hill. Saturday's sale was for Betrayal by Harold Pinter, which previews this week and is the first show to be directed by Dominic since taking up post!

Tickets went on sale at 10am. I arrived at the theatre at 8.50am and at that point there were 3 folk in the queue. From this point on the numbers grew steadily and we were delighted the rain stayed away.

From our point of view the build up to this sale was very exciting, but definitely nerve-wracking as we had no idea how many (if any) would show up. It was so good to see all the people who were prepared to wait to get tickets.

Actor Cal Macaninch joined Dominic to present the first ticket to the patient first person in our queue.


Well done to all who were successful in getting some 50p tickets this time around. 50p tickets for King Lear go on sale at 10am on Sat 14 April and for our Beckett double bill on Sat 26 May. If you can't make any of these, don't worry...

We are absolutely committed to providing theatre which is accessible to all of the Citizens in our community. For our own work, we provide a wide range of concessions which start at just £2 (for Unemployed and Gorbals Card-holders) and as a matter of course, we offer all seats at previews for just £6 and £10 Tuesdays. See Pricing info hereCheck Box Office for pricing on each show as some visiting companies vary.

This season, you can also see Limbo on 8-10 March for £5 (or £3 with a ticket to Betrayal).

Here's a wee slideshow from Saturday. Thanks again to all who took part, braved the cold and made it a big success! Here's to the next one.
