I know that parents of young children want them to experience theatrical shows. But how on earth do they pay for the tickets?
Not have children myself, I'm thinking they must skimp on other things like not going to first-run movies. Or not buying video games.
"Thomas & Friends: Thomas Saves the Day" can be seen at 2:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. May 22 in the Arena at Gwinnett Centre in Duluth. This is a show featuring Thomas the Train, a very, very popular character for young children.
My great-nephew, Elijah, is 7-years-old. When he last visited, I asked him if he liked Thomas the Train. He told me he did when he was a little boy. Kids.
Never miss a local story.
That's when I realized Thomas is popular with pre-schoolers.
Anyway, getting back to buying tickets for these shows.
How do parents do it?
Thomas tickets are $23.05, which are affordable, but are probably at the very top of the arena. The closer seats are $107.95. Can you imagine? The mid-range tickets are $34.10 and $46.15.
Closer to home, "Max & Ruby: Bunny Party," will be in the Bill Heard Theatre in RiverCenter for the Performing Arts at 6:30 p.m. May 19.
Those tickets are $14.50, $19.50 and $24.50, and go on sale at 10 a.m. April 14.
I know the Heard Theatre and even the very last row of the balcony has a good view of the stage.
I guess that's the difference between Atlanta-area arenas and our venues.
For "Max & Ruby" tickets, call 706-256-3612.
