"Am I going to feel gypped?" you ask (apologies to all Gypsies). The answer is, "No." The discounted ticket is a very honest effort by us to enchant your children, your whole FAMILY of children and wives and husbands, and not leave your wallet screaming. We firmly believe that children need to see LIVE MUSIC PERFORMANCE. And we want US to be a part of their lovely young lives.
As an adult will you get every little synapse tickled as you might if you came at night? No. You will not. We won't play as long. And you will likely be somewhat less intoxicated because it will be 2:00pm for god's sake and no time for over-imbibication. This will lead to a more MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE.
"Will there be swearing and inappropriately drunken Santas, dancing Devils and the like?" Um... Probably not. No. Ok, we promise. No. Maybe a little devil, a small one. No cigarettes.
You will also not have to listen to your kids impatiently asking to leave at the intermission, because there won't be one. One set packed with hits and also SPECIAL PERFORMERS of RARE ABILITIES UNIQUE TO THE MATINEE SHOW.
That's right. You will get things that the others who go at night WILL NOT GET. It must be said that they will get things that you won't get also. And isn't that one of the things that makes life interesting and so worth living? So now you understand all about the matinee. We offer it because we care.
