Today's the day! Earlier today Aladdin's official website received a bit of a make over. Cast and creative details have been added, an FAQ and a new "About The Show" section including updates from Twitter and Facebook. Best of all, the show's official opening night is confirmed as Thursday March 20th 2014 and priority tickets are now on sale!!
Tickets go on sale to the general public December 2nd but if you sign up to receive email alerts then you will receive a priority access code that allows you to purchase tickets between now and December 1st at special discounted rates. That's right, not only do you get priority access to tickets, you get them cheaper as well!! If, like me, you signed up for emails months ago but didn't receive a pre-sale email try signing up again with a new email address. I didn't get the email, signed up again today and got nothing, then Jane signed up a few hours later with her email address (which hadn't signed up before) and it came straight through. I'm now counting the days until we see the show! I can't wait :)
In addition to regular tickets, Aladdin also offers Premium tickets that include superior seating, a complimentary non-alcoholic beverage, a souvenir ticket lanyard and "unique merchandise opportunities". I'm not sure what that last part means (a copy of the souvenir programme when they become available?) but that didn't stop me booking them!
When you book your tickets you will also have the chance to pre-purchase some of the show's merchandise (this option was for standard and premium tickets so these aren't the "unique merchandise opportunities"). Here's the show towel and the Genie's Lamp ornament;
