Lack of time and money are probably the biggest excuses people give for not patronizing the local arts. This week, they’re also the lamest. For less than the cost of a night at the movies for you and your boo, you can pick up two tickets to this event and catch a pre-show featuring work from Crealdé School of Art, ArtistsRegistry.com, the Orlando Science Center and more, followed by a mainstage event with performances from Orlando Ballet, the Orlando Philharmonic, SAK Comedy Lab, Voci Dance and a bunch more. It’ll cost you a mere $44 for two tickets (less if you’re a student or senior), you get to absorb all that culture you’ve been meaning to get around to in the span of one evening and your money supports local arts organizations. No more excuses – just go. – Erin Sullivan (pre-show starts at 7 p.m. at Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre, 401 W. Livingston St.; $22 general admission, $15 for students and seniors; 407-849-2577; redchairproject.com)
