At both the 1:30 PM and 7:30 PM performances on Oct. 26, the first 100 people at the Foxwoods Theatre box office one hour prior to curtain can get one child’s ticket free with the purchase of one full-price adult ticket when the child (age 4-15) is wearing a full Spider-Man costume. (All children in costume at the matinee performance will also be invited to meet Spider-Man and take a photo with him immediately following the performance.)
This offer is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Additional allocations may be offered based on availability. The free kid's ticket is redeemable for ages 4-15 only with purchase of an adult ticket at the $149.50 price level.
Costumes may be homemade or store-bought but must be a head-to-toe resemblance of Spider-Man. "Management and/or box office staff has the right to determine eligibility of the costume," according to a press statement.
Spider-Man features creative consultation by Philip William McKinley, original direction by Tony Award winner Julie Taymor, music and lyrics by 22-time Grammy Award winners Bono and The Edge, and book co-written by Taymor, Glen Berger and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
Inspired by over 40 years of Marvel comic books, Spider-Man, according to press notes, "follows the story of teenager Peter Parker, whose unremarkable life is turned upside-down when he's bitten by a genetically altered spider and wakes up the next morning clinging to his bedroom ceiling. This bullied science-geek suddenly endowed with incredible powers soon learns, however, that with great power comes great responsibility as villains put both his physical strength and strength of character to the test."
