Deals: Princess Week, Expos, Free Days and More
posted by: Gretchen
I’m still trying to get tickets to Hamilton and I enter the drawing for the $10 tickets every day. I love the big shows at the Denver Center for Performing Arts. But, some of the smaller shows – you know the ones that you can actually get tickets to – always surprise me and they tend to be FANTASTIC! This weekend I’m excited to see This is Modern Art and later this year Champions of Magic and I just read that they have added Corduroy (yes that loveable bear) to the lineup! While I would take the Hamilton tickets if I won them… I think you’re missing out if you don’t see some of these other great shows.

Free Red Rocks Tickets for Teachers. Teachers do a lot and, unfortunately, they get little thanks for all their hard work. Which is why Don Strasburg, Co-President of AEG Live Rocky Mountains, wanted to express his thanks and give a little something for our teachers. He posted on his Facebook page, “Hey any school teachers friends of mine here? I’d like to stoke some of you with some comp tickets. You sure deserve a lot of love.” Because of his generosity, hundreds of people responded to his post with requests and praises for local teachers. And due to the influx of responses, AEG has been working tirelessly to try and get free tickets for all of them.
