ST. PAUL, Minn. (Nov 14, 2019) — The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts invites families to experience the magic of Broadway, the wonder of music and dance and the beauty of live performances through the buy one, get one free Target Tickets program.
Target is the Presenting Sponsor of Youth & Family Programming at the Ordway during the 2019-2020 season. Through the Target partnership, families will have the opportunity to access more than 12 unique offerings throughout the coming year.
Kicking off the Target Tickets program is hometown favorite, The Okee Dokee Brothers, who will perform a 60-minute show at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 17 in the Concert Hall. The buy-one, get-one free offer is available now, but quantities are limited.
“Our hope is that this new initiative with the Target Ticket program will build pathways and create opportunities for communities who haven’t yet experienced the Ordway,” said Jamie Grant, President and CEO of the Ordway. “There’s no better way to experience the Ordway than with family members because you can create memories that will last a lifetime.”
Other shows currently in the mix include SIX, the global smash about the six wives of King Henry VIII. The Target ticket offer is available for the 7:30 p.m. performances on both Dec. 1 and Dec. 3. There is limited availability for this buy one, get one free offer.
