The Arts and Culture Partnership of St. Paul has announced the return of “Raise the Curtain,” a one-day promotional event that offers tickets to a number of St. Paul shows at half-price. The goal is to stimulate sales by making shows more affordable to people in an economic pinch. The catch is that all tickets must be purchased tomorrow, December 8th.
This is not the first time the “curtain” has been “raised” on half-price tickets in St. Paul. It was done back in 2001 to stimulate holiday spending in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and subsequent market crash.
Organizations participating in the promotional offer include the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, Rose Ensemble, Minnesota Historical Society, Park Square Theatre, Saint Paul City Ballet, and the Ordway Center for Performing Arts.
