At the Beachcomber Camping Resort, 462 Seashore Rd., if staying 7 nights during August 12-Sept. 2, guests receive one comp ticket; if staying 10 nights during the same period, guests receive two comp tickets.
ELTC ticket prices are $32.00 for general admission and $27.00 for seniors and those with disabilities and their support companions, so these packages offer a considerable savings. ELTC ticket price for students, and those currently in the military, retired, or a veteran, is $17.00. To entice whole families to attend, ages 12 and under are free. Patrons taking advantage of the B&B and restaurant discounts may call ELTC directly at 884-5898 and ELTC will hold tickets at the box office for students, military, and those ages 12 and under.
Another way to save money, is by purchasing online. Several reduced-priced tickets are available for most performances through NJArtstix.org, 24 hours in advance. It costs nothing to sign up to use this site, and many other theaters throughout the state also have savings listed. Since 2010, ELTC has also listed most of its shows with Theater Development Fund (TDF.org), the same organization that manages the Half-Price Ticket Booth in Times Square. Patrons must have certain qualifications to have access to this site, but savings at many theaters in New York and New Jersey can be found.
Membership has its privileges. By becoming a member of JerseyArts.com, patrons receive a Discover Jersey Arts Card that gives them discounts to cultural events throughout the state. For the first two year, membership is free. At ELTC, by showing this card, patrons receive one ticket for $20, or two tickets for $40, on any night. Members of WHYY Public Television in Philadelphia receive two-for-the-price of one general admission ticket, on Fridays.
