“We are entering the digital era … a little late … but entering it we are!” said Chris Winstanley, chairperson of The Algarveans Experimental Theatre Group, when revealing the new ways that tickets can be purchased for the group’s production of “Ladies’ Day” by Amanda Whittington.
Following discussions with Lagoa Town Hall and a recent change in the law, the group is having to change the way it sells tickets for their shows and, in future, audience members will be able to buy them online or in person at numerous locations.
Tickets for “Ladies’ Day”, which is being performed at the Auditório Carlos do Carmo in Lagoa, are now on sale online at www.ticketline.pt, Portugal’s leading online ticket agency, where for the first time clients can reserve the seats they want. The show is being performed from Thursday to Saturday, March 21-23, at 7.45pm.
You can also buy tickets in person at Auditório Carlos do Carmo and Centro Cultural Convento de São José in Lagoa, Tuesday to Saturday, 9am to 12.30pm and 2pm to 5.30pm or when the auditoriums are open for performances. Alternatively, you can also purchase tickets at Lagoa’s Balcão Único, Monday to Friday, 9am to 4.30pm.
Tickets are also available in person at Worten and FNAC shops or online from their websites.
Tickets at €12 bought from Lagoa council locations will be free from commission. Worten and FNAC shops and online purchases will charge an additional €1 per ticket.
If the show is not sold out in advance, tickets can be purchased on the night from Auditório Carlos do Carmo from 7pm.
To help the change of ticketing for shows, the group has posted all the information on its website www.thealgarveans.com and its Facebook page – The Algarveans Theatre Group. There are links to both the Ticketline website and Google Maps to show customers where tickets can be purchased in person.
You can also call a special telephone number for this show (913 745 261) to direct you to the best place for you to get your tickets for the show, which is being performed as part of Lagoa’s annual “Humorfest”, bringing together a month of comedy to the region.
One critic described “Ladies’ Day” as having all the charm of “Calendar Girls” and “The Full Monty”, with a good dollop of “Dinner Ladies”. Get your seat quick to see if they’re right.
