Get Discounted Tickets for Orlando’s Blue Man Group in August

One of my favorite Orlando attractions is the Blue Man Group at Universal Orlando.

It can be rather expensive to see the show, though. However, during August, Blue Man Group is offering discounted tickets for their shows.

Adults can get Tier 1 seats for only $54. Normally these tickets are priced from $79-$94, so you can save up to 40% with this deal.

As a bonus, your ticket acts like a Universal CityWalk Party Pass, getting you into the clubs for free after the Blue Man Group show.

The discount is for performances from August 6 through 26, 2012.

Tickets must be booked by August 15, via the TravelZoo website.

2012 Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival to Take Place May 16-28

As far as Orlando cultural events go, the annual Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival is one of the city’s biggest. Voted “Best Festival” by the Orlando Weekly for nine consecutive years, the 2012 Festival showcases over 500 theatrical performances over a thirteen-day period, throughout ten indoor venues at Loch Haven Park.

This year’s event, which marks its 21st year, takes place from May 16 through 28.

To attend any of the performances, you must first purchase an $8 fest button. Proceeds from these buttons are what fund the festival.

Then you can attend the actual performances, which range in price from free to $11. Any money raised by individual tickets goes to the artists performing that particular show.

In addition to ticketed performances at the Lowndes Shakespeare Center (812 E Rollins St. Orlando, FL 32803) and Orlando Repertory Theatre (1001 E. Princeton Street, Orlando, FL 32803), the Orlando Fringe Festival hosts a number of interdisciplinary activities and exhibits.

Kids Fringe, held at the Mennello Museum of American Art (900 East Princeton Street, Orlando, FL 32803), offers free arts and theatre activities for the whole family from 10am to 4pm on the weekends. Visual Fringe is on display throughout Festival venues, and exhibit artwork is available for purchase.

Festival hours are 4pm to Midnight on weeknights, and 10am to Midnight on Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets for Festival performances can be purchased at www.OrlandoFringe.org, or during the Festival at Box Office locations in the Lowndes Shakespeare Center and the Orlando Repertory Theatre.
