Free ticket redemption resumes in March

Many of you have asked about how to redeem the free tickets you have been awarded in our weekly drawings. Since we cut over to our new Simpletix solution, we've been working out the best way to accomplish that, and we believe we now have a handle on that, beginning with the March shows. Toward the latter part of this month, you'll get an email from us with a special "promotion code" that will allow you to order your award tickets over and Simpletix for zero cost. To accomplish this, we've had to transfer the $0.50 service charge per ticket from a separate line item to a part of the overall ticket price. So watch for the email and we will see you in March, if not before.
