    Went to the site. Check out hte press photos.
    One looks oddly familiar.
    Thank you.

    So who's interested in going? Are there certain dates & times better for some than others?

    Well, you know I plan to go. I just don't know when. Feb 8th may not be good since it is my husband's birthday. I'm almost tempted to say some time after WonderCon might be easier for my schedule since I've got so much to do those first few weeks of February.

    Perhaps these dates when a post-show Q&A discussion is happening could be fun?

    post-show discussions
    Feb 28, Mar 11 and 14? lively 30-minute post-show Q&A with the cast or other company members

    This sounds interesting too, but it is that weekend before Wonder Con and I certainly can't do both this on Friday and a meeting on Saturday :(

    30-below
    Feb 15?the coolest post-show party for the under-30 crowd

    Steph and I can make the 30 and below [face_dancing] ... Weekend or weekday night would be best.
    We are in for sure.

    Robert,

    What show and time did you buy tickets for? If we can get enough people, we can get a group rate, or someone can win a pair from the raffle at WonderCon. ;)

    One of the shows is 2/12, I think 3/11 is the other one.

    I know, the meeting's not until next week, but can we PLEASE decide pronto which date we will be seeing this show in March? They might sell out quickly. And more importantly, I need to submit to my Boss by Feb 11th what dates in March I need off, in order for me to see it.

    Can we please get a consensus or have someone create a Poll?

    Thanks...

    I think people should just decide when they want to go on their own. I've already got tixs for 2 shows. Otherwise the more you wait, the better seats will be gone.

    Blah, I had not even thought about which seats would be available. I've been so stressed out planning for WonderCon I had put this to the back burner.

    Maybe a small group of us just needs to decide when we want to go. Joan and Richard want to go, and a Rebel Legion member that is a friend of theirs wants to try to go with us too. I think with their work schedule a weekend is best. I'm fine with any time after WonderCon. I can call Joan today and find out from her which days would be best for she and Richard. If one of those days works well for you Dale, we should probably get a quick head count and buy a set of tickets so we'll all be seated together?

    I'd say let's get tickets for Fri. 3/14, with the post-show discussion.

    Matt - I sent you and Dale an e-mail last night about dates that would be good for me, Joan, Richard and new Rebel Legion member Jean. I was hoping if we decide on a date that Dale will be requesting off from work today we could order a group of tickets so we are all seated together?

    I see there is a post-play discussion on February 28th, March 14th & March 11th (you have to look at the ticket sale calendar). I would also like to see her post-play discussion - although they do not fall on days Jean was available. Maybe she'd be able to adjust her schedule?

    So please let me know ASAP if Dale gets a certain day requested off. You could contact John and some of your other friends from the 501st, I can ask Alison, and maybe we can get that group of 15 for the discount and get some good seats before they are all gone?

    Even if we can't get 15 of us (which could be the case) it would be nice to make our reservations all together so we are seated together.

    Dale said he'll request 3/14, since it's a Friday night. I think I read on the website, that the group discount is for 10 or more, not 15.

    If you go to the actual online ticket sale section of the web site, it says the group discount is for 15 or more. So perhaps the group sale rate is different if you book directly through the theater. I was confused, as I thought I'd read it was 10 on one page, yet another page said 15.

    Don't forget there are discounts for the under 30 crowd...

    Yes, there are under 30 discounts listed on the order page... but the group discount didn't say there was an age limit. But I guess it is worth calling and getting specifics on since the web site is vague about the group rate.

    Matt and Dale,

    If you are thinking of going on Friday evening the... free vouchers we are giving away are NOT good for that night. So if Dale is confirmed as having that evening off we should buy our group tickets soon (like in the next week if we can).

    Have you called to find out how to take advantage of the group discount. So far we have:

    Me
    Matt
    Dale
    Joan
    Richard
    Eva (plus Angelica)

    If we can get 4 more (maybe Alison?) we can go for that 10 person group discount.

    I'll find out about getting at least four more, Kathy. Maybe you could post about it in the GGG forums. I started it in the "Off Topic" section.

    I just got a hold of the woman at the theater that takes care of the group orders.



    For 10 people we can save $5.00 per ticket. Sections A and B are Available (Base price of A = 55.00, Section B= 43.00)

    For a group of 15 or more we would save 20% off on the tickets, and get one free additional ticket. That is $11.00 off on Section A tickets, and $8.60 off on Section B.


    So just 4 more people would make us an even 10 :)

    My contact at the Theater won't be back in the office until Tuesday. So I'm hoping we can get a firm count on our group and we can place our order for the tickets Tuesday the 19th. I'm happy to facilitate the order, but I would have to ask that people paypal me in advance to cover the cost of the tickets (we don't want to get stuck paying for other people or unused tickets).
