A Great Time to get Vertigo

by Janice Grey · 0 comments


Even though the weather just realized that summer is near, sadly it is going to be over before we know it. But don’t despair; Vertigo Theatre has just the “ticket” to get you excited for the fall and promises to relieve those post-summer doldrums. 

Vertigo Theatre is located in the base of the Calgary Tower, at 115-9 Ave S.E., conveniently close to numerous restaurants and easily accessible by public transportation. Subscriptions to their BD&P Mystery Theatre Series for the 2014/2015 season are now on sale and include tickets to five fabulous mysteries:

  • Farewell my Lovely – September 20th to October 19th
  • The Game’s Afoot – November 8th to December 7th
  • Bloodshot – January 17th to February 15th
  • The Haunting – March 14th to April 12th
  • Dial M for Murder – May 2nd to May 31st

The plays run Tuesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., as well as matinees Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. So, there are plenty of performances to choose from to suit your schedule.

As a subscription-holder, you get several benefits:

  • 20% discount off single ticket pricing – equivalent to one free show and who doesn’t like free stuff
  • Reduced parking rates in the Palliser Parkade
  • Free ticket exchanges – because life doesn’t always work out the way you want it to
  • Seat selection for the entire season – choose your favourite seats and secure them for every performance
  • Complimentary coat check – which will come in handy during the winter months
  • The option to purchase tickets to Shear Madness (not part of the subscription) at a discount, if bought prior to October

The theatre opens one hour prior to each performance, allowing you to arrive early on those fall and winter performances and warm up with a beverage pre-show. Then, you can find refuge in the warm cozy theatre while you try to figure out “whodunit”. During the warmer months, you can sip on a cool drink before mystery solving.

Subscribing will also give you an excuse to go shopping for marvelous new theatre-going outfits at downtown Calgary’s many shops.

So, even if you don’t want to think about the end of summer quite yet, you will be glad you did.
