Pegasus Players Offers Discount Tickets For Uptowners

Pegasus Players Theater announced its 31st season today and is offering a season-long special ticket discount to Uptown residents and employees of Uptown businesses. By entering the code word “uptown” when purchasing individual tickets, you can receive between a 20%-30% discount off of the regular ticket price of any performance. Thursday night tickets will be $12 instead of $17, Friday and Saturday night tickets will be $20 instead of $25, and Sunday afternoon matinee tickets will be $15 instead of $20. Preview performance tickets (typically the first weekend of a show’s run)
will be $12 instead of $15.

Pegasus Players is in residence at the O’Rourke Center Theater on the Truman College campus at 1145 W. Wilson Ave and will present 4 world premieres and 2 Chicago premieres during its 2009-2010 season. The season includes 2 hard-hitting dramas, a hysterical Off-Broadway musical, and the
24th annual Young Playwrights Festival. The first production, “Ten Square,” is an award-winning world-premiere being presented in partnership with MPAACT (an African-centered theater company based in Chicago). “Ten Square” begins two weekends of previews on Friday, September 25 and runs
from Thursday, October 8 – Sunday, November 22. Visit the Pegasus Players website for more information about the shows and to purchase tickets at www.pegasusplayers.org.

  1. Pegasus Players has been a great asset to the area since it came to Truman College 25 years ago. Its many "community outreach" activities including the Young Playwrights Festival, and free or discount tickets to various groups and organizations, has made it a very good neighbor indeed.

    That said, it strikes me that the 2009-10 lineup doesn't seem to measure up in quality or quantity to some previous years' offerings. Maybe there will be some "TBA" shows from other sources that will play during Pegasus' dark weeks and enhance the schedule.
