Ticket giveaway to draw attention and attendance to theatre matinees

If you’re a UWindsor employee who has never seen a University Players show, you literally don’t know what you’re missing, says marketing coordinator Anna Galka. She is hoping to correct that with a promotion offering free tickets to the troupe’s current production, Molière Impromptu.

The show is based on three short plays by the French comic master, translated and adapted by Rinne Groff. University Players will give away a pair of tickets to any faculty or staff member new to its high-quality theatre experience—a $40 value.

Galka hopes the giveaway will help alert theatre goers to this season’s schedule, which for the first time includes performances at 2 p.m. Saturdays.

“The Saturday matinees are new this year and we know people are still unaware that we have added these performances,” she says. “We added them in response to patron requests, so we know the matinees will become popular once the word is out.”

Free tickets are available for the 2 p.m. performances September 20 and 27. To claim yours, send an e-mail to agalka@uwindsor.ca at least 24 hours before showtime. Remember, you must never have seen a University Players show to be eligible!
