only the good buy young

Here is a link to a video we think you need to show your teen and campus ministries: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqqDMwcCVIE

here’s why:
This is an urgent alert if you intend to see the Upside Down show, or have groups you hope will see the show; but have not yet bought tickets:

We have been so blessed with ticket sales for our musical Upside Down which will be staged during REACH https://www.cvent.com/events/reach-2016/event-summary-4555ca94ce064d71a4b28e58661b5e19.aspx this July. We are nearly sold out and are writing this because we are sincerely concerned that teens and college students in our fellowship don’t know what’s going on.

If you have students who are going to be at the conference and you’ve figured that they would see the show, but have not yet bought tickets; please understand that there can only be 5 shows and they are nearly sold out already. Only 215 tickets are available as we write this and that number is being reduced on a daily basis by an average of at least 10; looks like they could be all gone before the end of March if not sooner.

We priced these seats predicting that this exact scenario would unfold. When the early bird buying spree ended we had to raise prices, but we agreed not to make it harder for students to see the show, so the price for the few remaining seats is still a very low number, barely more than a movie ticket in some cities; much less than what we could be charging. All that because we want young people to be able to get tickets. Of course, we’re not filtering the buyers. Anyone can get these seats, but it’s our hope students will get them first.

If you’ve already bought tickets, thank you so much.

If you’ve known about the show but for whatever reason don’t really care to promote it, that’s ok. We’d love to change your mind, but that really is not who we’re writing to right now.

However, if you’ve intended to get your students to this show we just want you to know that time is running out. This is not, we promise, a hard sell promotion email trying to sell out the shows. We blew past our wildest dreams for ticket sales more than a month ago. In our fellowship, we’ve never experienced anything selling out this fast or this early before the event.

This really is in keeping with our most precious dream that we can help inspire a whole new generation to remember the Lord and turn their world upside down.

So, if you’d like to help get any young people to the show;

1) Show the video from our young cast members https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqqDMwcCVIE

2)if you’re in the position that you can buy tickets for your group to sit together, don’t delay. Go to https://upsidedowntheatre.com and you’ll still find some seats available for 4 of the 5 shows. Saturday matinee is sold out and all the other shows are sold out except for our least expensive seats.

3) if you have young people and you want them to buy tickets please steer them to https://upsidedowntheatre.com and encourage them to buy seats this week before they disappear.

4) if you want to help encourage your groups or other youth groups and campus ministries please share this video. https://www.dropbox.com/s/d9cp9wp7ck04ymv/Campus_USD.mov?dl=0…..here’s

Our show is geared towards a younger audience, with a younger cast and new blood in the veins of a show that’s inspired thousands of people for nearly three decades.Screen Shot 2016-02-26 at 7.41.18 AM
