reaching out to high school students

Interplayers is now also offering discounted tickets to high schools students: $10 for the first show, $6 for any show later in the season.

And they're offering free tickets to one student from each local high school -- a student who will then turn around and write a review of an Interplayers show for his or her school paper.

Bobo met an LC student who was doing just that on opening night of Someone Who'll Watch Over Me -- and he (Bobo, that is) would be happy to meet with other student reviewers in the future, as on opening night for The Mystery of Irma Vep (Oct. 22) or The Fantasticks (Nov. 26). Since I _am_ a ho for all things theatrical (which probably makes the _parents_ of high school students want to steer their kids in the opposite of whatever direction I'm headed) ... nonetheless, I will continue to post reviews late on opening night, and I'd be happy talk with adolescent theater persons (we could talk about reviewing), or make presentations in classes (guaranteed non-boring stuff) ... etc.

Just a thought.

I'm confused ... Aren't student tickets $10 anyways? How is this new?

Paying $10 for the first ticket gets the student a "membership," good for the rest of the season, permitting him or her to purchase ensuing tix at just $6 per show. At least that's how I understand the press releases.
