The Citizens Theatre will host their first 50p ticket sale of 2019 at Tramway, offering bargain hunting fans cut price tickets for The Dark Carnival, a music and theatre spectacle from Vanishing Point, in co-production with the Citizens Theatre, in association with Dundee Rep Ensemble.


From 10am on Saturday 16 January, 100 tickets for The Dark Carnival will be available for 50p.  Tickets are available over 10 performances and can only be purchased in person at Tramway. 


Transporting audiences into an unexpected vision of the afterlife full of long-lost lovers and half-hearted ghosts, The Dark Carnival will feature sixteen performers and musicians, with live original music from A New International. Through songs, spoken word and visual imagery, they will tell the story of newcomers to the afterlife who discover, much to their surprise, that death is not actually the end.


The 50p ticket sale will begin at 10am but with availability strictly limited, and the bargain ticket offer more popular than ever, customers are advised to join the queue at Tramway early to avoid disappointment. Customers will be able to buy a maximum of two tickets per person which must be paid for in cash.
