The annual Free Night of Theatre is fast approaching, but host the League of Charleston Theatres is taking a different approach to distributing tickets this year. Usually it’s a mad dash for people to log on at a certain time and request which shows they’d like to see — last year’s event sold out in less than eight minutes! This year, they’re implementing an enter-to-win approach, which allows you two weeks to look over participating companies’ schedules and choose up to five shows.

Log on to between Sept. 9-23 to see which shows are available, make your selections, and enter to win free tickets. Winners will be announced on Sept. 28, and shows will run throughout October. Even if you don’t win, we’re told that most arts organizations will contact you to make you other offers.
