The Soraya offers family fun in an economical four pack
By Marie Estrada (@marie_festrada)
As we say goodbye to summer and shout a big hello to the fall season — school openings, football, lower temperatures! — it’s also time to give a big wave to performing arts centers, many just now opening their doors again for their 2022-23 season.
That notion though, comes with the understanding that it was a long summer, with gas prices soaring nearly as high as temperatures and costs for everyday goods doing the same as many wages remained fixed.
Nearly 4 in 10 Americans say family finances have suffered in the last year, according to NPR, but does that mean they’ll be staying home until things bounce back? At The Soraya, we certainly hope not!
The Soraya at California State University, Northridge is providing families with an incentive to turn out for their family-friendly performances this season. Tickets for the whole family, fees and parking all adds up. To make it easy for families to enjoy their performances, The Soraya is now offering a family four-pack to select shows: Four tickets to any one of the following family- friendly shows for just $99.
