Spoleto Festival USA will again offer a 40% discount on a wide selection of 2019 Festival performances during a singular savings-for-locals weekend, March 9th and 10th.
Charleston-area residents on the Festival’s mailing list will be sent a promotional code to use online at spoletousa.org from 8 am on March 9th to 11:59 pm on March 10th. Specially priced tickets can also be purchased in person (no code required) at the Spoleto Festival USA offices, located at 14 George Street, on Saturday and Sunday from 1 pm to 5 pm.
On Sunday, March 10th, as part of Second Sunday on King Street, the public is invited to visit the Festival’s information table (on the corner of King and George streets) from 1 pm to 5 pm. Second Sunday visitors will receive a promotional code to use online that day, or they can walk a short distance to the Festival offices to purchase tickets in person until 5 pm. Locals Weekend savings cannot be applied to purchases made over the phone; discounts are not valid on prior purchases or for limited-view seating, and they cannot be combined with other discounts.
The list of specially priced performances encompasses more than 50 Festival events—including Spoleto’s all-new production of Salome, the world premieres of Roots and Letter to a Friend in Gaza, and the Wells Fargo Festival Finale featuring Curtis Harding, this year held at Riverfront Park in North Charleston. Charleston locals can also save on all Shakespeare’s Globe “Audience Choice” shows—among the Festival’s most exciting offerings this season. Held at the Dock Street Theatre, audience members at these performances decide then and there which of three classic Shakespeare plays they want to see. The troupe’s eight actors present the options—Twelfth Night, The Comedy of Errors, and Pericles—then ask the audience to cheer for the desired entertainment before launching into action.
