Cygnet Theatre announces free tickets to furloughed employees for their currently running production of Marie and Rosetta. Employees simply need to show an ID badge or proof of employment in person at the Box Office to receive up to two tickets each. Seats are based on availability.
"We are happy to provide these tickets as a way to show our appreciation for the work the government employees continue to do while being affected by the shutdown" says Executive Director Bill Schmidt. "Some 800,000 workers are left without paychecks during this time. Hopefully we can provide some light in this dark time for them."
Get your front-row seat to music history in the making! Bringing fierce guitar playing and swing to gospel music, Sister Rosetta Tharpe was a legend in her time and a huge influence on Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix, and Ray Charles. Marie and Rosetta chronicles her first rehearsal with a young prot g e, Marie Knight, as they prepare to embark on a tour that would establish them as one of the great duos in music history. This story of letting loose, finding your voice, and freeing your soul is a soaring music-theatre experience chock full of roof-raising performances.
