There are many advantages to ordering tickets in advance. You never have to worry that the show you want to see will sell out and you can pick the best available seats. The biggest and best advantage I have found is being able to be part of the Audience Rewards Loyalty Program.

This program gives you show points when you buy tickets through Ticketmaster, Telecharge or from a box office. For every dollar you spend you earn two points (similar to credit card points, or airline miles). Be sure to watch your email for special promotions. Reward tickets to shows can be found for as little as 1,000 points!

Once you sign up for an account, there are many ways to earn points. Bonus points are also available for when you buy tickets for featured shows. Check-in on your phone when you’re at shows, dining out  before and after a show, or when going to museums and other places in the city to earn even more points! You can even answer trivia questions on the Audience Rewards website to earn points!

With your points you can also purchase show merchandise, one of a kind memorabilia, and special perks like show talkbacks with the cast or behind-the-scene tours.

Having earned lots of points this way, I was able to redeem them for tickets to Motown, Once and If/Then.

Other amazing things about Audience Rewards:
