Free Florida Rep Tickets
I was at the Florida Rep Theatre and had the pleasure of photographing the show running now, ‘Becky’s New Car’. It’s a phenomenal show! So good that I think everyone should have a chance to see it! To help you do that, we are going to be doing a ticket giveaway for FREE Florida Rep Tickets starting on Saturday, March 26, 2016 through Friday, April 1, 2016. (No, this is not an April Fools joke:) ) All you need to do is email the studio (email@example.com) with your name and we will have a daily drawing for the winning tickets. The tickets are for two people and are valid for all of the remaining performances at The Florida Rep’s Historic Arcade Theatre and its smaller sibling The Artstage Studio Theatre. The tickets are valid until May 8th, 2016. (Please only enter if you are able to use them.)
The Gulf Coasting section of The News-Press newspaper, ran an excellent article written by Charles Runnels about the history behind the show (an incredible story itself)
Charles Runnels writes:
“Charles Staadecker considered lots of things for his wife’s 60th birthday present: Jewelry, perhaps. Or maybe a new car. But nothing seemed right.
Whatever he got her, he knew, it had to be something special. You only turn 60 once.
Finally, he found his gift.
And it was a doozy.
Sure, Charles just could have bought tickets to see a play. Anyone could do that. But wouldn’t it be better if he actually bought a play?
So that’s what he did: He commissioned a brand-new play that eventually became the comedy “Becky’s New Car.”
And it’s the gift that’s kept on giving, year after year. “Becky’s New Car” quickly became a national hit with four productions in Southwest Florida, alone, including a new one at Florida Repertory Theatre in downtown Fort Myers.”
