    Free Theatre and Concert tickets - Codes only, no discussion 26th Nov 09 at 12:28 PM
    This is an alternative thread to the Free Cinema Tickets thread, as Seefilmfirst and other companies are branching out more and more into the Theatre/Comedy world. Please continue to post cinema codes in the Cinema Tickets thread, but any theatre etc should now go here.


    What's the deal?


    There are a host of hidden companies that allow you (and a friend) to see theatre/comedy for free. These agencies work as publicists with the intention of getting people to spread the word about the events they see, or filling up gaps in the theatre last minute. It's good psychology, after all if you've seen something for nothing, you may be more favourable to it - meaning your friends may pay to see it.

    The Main Agencies

    The following are the main agencies, sign up to their email addresses so you'll be notified of the screenings. Be aware that you're likely to get some 'third party' promotional stuff through to the same address, that's the price you pay. You could use a second e-mail address for this sort of material; many freebie hunters do this as a matter of course. You can set up a Hotmail or Gmail account in minutes, just be sure to check it occasionally! (see this week's gmail tip for info)
    • SeeFilmFirst. SeeFilmFirst offers the most tickets. It also distributes tickets to third-party promoters, and when there are some tickets left afterwards, it allows you to claim them too (if you're quick enough!)
    How do I then get to see a play or event?

    When events become available, you'll recieve a code in your email which you can use to redeem tickets on the relevant website. Just type it in and follow the on-screen instructions to claim tickets. You'll usually get two tickets for each screening. They're non-transferable, so if you want to swap them you'll need to change the booked name by email.

    See latest codes reported below

    Many people publish the latest codes for theatre/comedy/dance events below (wonderfully kept in order by MoneySaver Heatherw_01), to use them you need to be registered with the above sites anyway. This thread is just for codes, if you want to discuss offers go to the Free Theatre and Concert tickets discussion thread.

    Free Theatre & Concert Tickets that incur small admin charges
    • #3
    • 24th Mar 16, 3:18 PM
    Hi Everyone

    As some tickets now have a small admin fee its still better to keep them on this thread so more people see them and people that are subscribed will get alerts for them.

    I know its not technically 'free' but the same could be said for some posts on the cinema codes board that need subscriptions but it was decided a long time ago to allow them on the freebies thread.

    Thanks

    Sarah

    We are very excited to have a tickets to **Crucible** at The Orchard Theatre, Dartford this week - just a few available for all performances including matinee.

    We have these tickets as we are keen to get your feedback, and, to showcase the venue.

    This bold new production of Arthuer Miller's The Crucible starring Charlie Condou (Coronation Street), as the witch hunter, Reverend Hale and Victoria Yeates (Call the Midwife), the falsely accused Elizabeth Proctor, serves as a stark and chilling reminder of the frailty of reason in the face of hysteria and the terrifying power of false accusations.

    Funny Girl, New Victoria Theatre, Woking
    25 & 26 April


    http://www.showfilmfirst.com/pin/308096

    Hot on the heels of a record breaking, critically acclaimed West End run this ‘utterly irresistible’ (The Sunday Times) new production of Funny Girl stars West End leading lady Natasha J Barnes as Fanny Brice. Following runs at the Menier and in the West End, Darius Campbell reprises his role as Nick Arnstein.

    Funny Girl brought global fame to Barbra Streisand 50 years ago, boasting some of the most iconic songs in film and theatre history, including People and Don’t Rain On My Parade. Half a century later, this ‘exhilarating embrace of a production’ (The Independent) comes to Wolverhampton after wowing critics and audiences alike in London’s West End. This iconic musical tells the story of Fanny Brice, whose vocal talents and comedic ability see her rise from Brooklyn music hall singer to Broadway star.

    Don’t miss your chance to see this ‘phenomenal’ (The Telegraph) production at the New Victoria Theatre for 1 week only in April.

    ★★★★
    ‘Triumphantly reinvents Funny Girl for a new generation’
    Evening Standard

    ★★★★
    ‘Michael Mayer’s vivacious production has wit, charm and energy, sparkly choreography, and a strong, ebullient cast.’
    Financial Times

    The producers of Funny Girl cannot guarantee the appearance of any particular artist, which is always subject to illness and holidays.
