TodayTix flags Melbourne’s cultural alternatives to the AFL Grand Final

TodayTix flags Melbourne’s cultural alternatives to the AFL Grand Final
September 4, 2019

With the upcoming September long weekend a great opportunity for Melburnians to make the most of an extra day off, for AFL supporters it means cheering on the teams in the Grand Final.

However, for those looking for an alternative to the sporting fever, TodayTix, the digital gateway to arts and cultural experiences, has highlighted affordable cultural alternatives to events at the MCG.

A spokesperson for TodayTix advised “for those willing to try something a little different, experience Opera Australia’s eerie, thrilling and mysterious Ghost Sonata at The Coopers Malthouse.

“Ghost Sonata is considered a one-of-a-kind experience and TodayTix just happens to have exclusive access to day-of mobile Rush seats for only $30. Equal parts thrilling, disturbing and dreamlike, it explores duality in the human condition: truth and lies, illusion and reality. The tale is as strangely poignant now as it was when it was first written in 1907.

“If you’re a fan of the wizarding world and need a break from muggle life, taking a chance at the Friday Forty Lottery for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child playing at Princess Theatre is a great option. This two-part play is the eighth official Harry Potter story, written by J.K. Rowling herself with playwright Jack Thorne. You won’t want to miss the magic that everyone’s been buzzing about, so enter the Friday Forty on TodayTix for the chance to win tickets at just $40 per part.

“If you’re interested in an immersive experience, make the trip to Werribee to see What Was That?! at Werribee Park Mansion. Based on the true story of the Chirnside family, you’ll go back to the 19th century and follow the head maid and butler around the property to watch a murder mystery unfold as you roam from room to room.”
