History was made a little over 2 weeks ago in Hollywood when The Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists announced that they will officially merge. This merger, which encompasses more than 150,000 actors, announcers, broadcasters, journalists, dancers, DJs, news writers, news editors, program hosts, puppeteers, recording artists, singers, stunt performers, voiceover artists and other media professionals, is one of the largest displays of Solidarity shown in the entertainment industry; a display which has touched the hearts of theatre professionals nationwide, including the current national tour of Billy Elliot the Musical which is currently playing at the Pantages Theatre.
To honor union members here in Los Angeles, Broadway/L.A. and the National Tour of Billy Elliot the Musical are extending a special $45 ticket offer, which is available to ANY entertainment union members, such as the newly formed SAG-AFTRA, Actor’s Equity Association, IATSE and AGVA, just to name a few.
Members with valid union ID cards may come to the Pantages Theatre box office beginning at 10am on the day of the desired performance and purchase $45 best available seats in select areas. There is a two seat maximum per member per valid union ID. This special offer is not valid on previously purchased tickets to Billy Elliot.
