great american trailer park christmas
The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical is gearing up for a great run from December 3rd through December 28th at Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte, 650 East Stonewall Street. Several performances are already sold out. However, Wednesday, November 26th, you can go and “pay what you can.” The suggested donation is $10, but you really can pay whatever you can. The show is at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are available starting at 6:30 p.m. You can not reserve tickets, so you would be wise to show up early. There will be a crowd.

The lovable, zany residents of Armadillo Acres are back! While preparing to decorate a holiday contest, a new Scrooge-like resident begins to wreak havoc on the festivities. With songs like “My Christmas Tin Toy Boy” and “Christmas in My Mobile Home,” get ready for a cat-fightin’, sun-worshippin’, chair-throwin’ good time that’ll make grandma blush.

For those trying to shop painlessly, Groupon has organized a whole bunch of Pre-Black Friday Doorbuster deals. These are “Groupon Goods” on a deep discount. Just a few examples are 88% off Swarovski Elements Birthstone Stud Earrings, 65% off a SodaStream Genesis Soda Maker Kit and 69% off DC Comics Remote Controlled Helicopters. Make sure to shop around online a little bit because some of the original prices that Groupon cites are high. But still, there are some very, very good deals here.

Sky Zone
Kids who are bouncing at Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park at 10200 Centrum Parkway in Pineville, on December 6th, are in for a treat. From 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Ashley the Elf from K104.7 will be giving out candy, K104.7 holiday mugs, and reindeer antlers. There will even be a special prize given to one lucky winner at the end of the event. Call Sky Zone at 704-208-4040 with any questions.

Also, right now, for a limited time, there’s a Groupon for Sky Zone: Pay $16 for two 60-minute jump sessions. ($26 value.) I highly recommend calling Sky Zone to make sure that they will honor the Groupon during this event. You might have to use it a different time.

best Christmas lights in Charlotte

Lights at the Quarter

Looking for the biggest, best Christmas light displays in the Charlotte area for the 2014 Christmas season? Here are some resources for tracking them down. The folks behind Lights at the Quarter, whose display is seriously amazing, shared this list with me. All these displays, often synchronized to Christmas music, are put on by regular people, at their own expense, and it takes an incredible amount of time and creativity. So visit and let them know you appreciate it. If a radio station is listed, tune your car radio to that station to listen to the coordinated music. Please be considerate of these folks’ neighbors. If a website or Facebook page is listed, make sure to visit and check out the hours, start dates, and any additional information that you need to know. Some families show videos and pictures of their works in progress as well.

Other things you might be interested in: A frequently updated day-by-day list of holiday events in the Charlotte area. Also, subscribe to Charlotte on the Cheap by email and you’ll receive one email a day with links to all the free and cheap events and local deals.

charlotte hornets
NOTE: As I write this I’m seeing tickets for Hornets games, but not Panthers. Alert! Extra discount: If you’re spending at least $120, use promo code CHEAP20 to get an extra $20 off. This deal is for first time customers. If you’re not spending $120 or that code is not working for you, here’s another one. New members save $15 on first order of sports, concert and theater tickets with code TURKEYWEEK15. Purchase must be $70 or more. Read on to learn more about how Scorebig works. ScoreBig, a discount ticket company, is offering tickets to many local and regional sporting and entertainment events, for substantial discounts, up to 60% off. ScoreBig is not a ticket broker but a company that works directly with venues, teams and promoters to sell off excess tickets. You can think of it like Priceline for entertainment and sports tickets. For each event, Scorebig tells you what the average savings it’s offering. Savings are generally between 10% and 60% off. I’ve used Scorebig myself and had great success. It works great.  Scorebig offers discounted tickets for Panthers and Hornets games, NASCAR races, and concerts. If an event shows up as “Sold Out” keep checking back because tickets DO free up. You can even sign up for an alert for when tickets become available. Here’s how it works :

  • Select the event you want and where you want to sit.
  • Make a bid. You’ll have to enter your credit card information here.
  • If your bid is accepted, you’re notified instantly, and your credit card will be charged.
  • If your bid is rejected, you can place a new bid on a different seating area or event. To place a bid on the same event and seating area you’ll have to wait 24 hours.
  • Sometimes you’ll get a counter offer, which you are free to accept or reject.
  • No additional fees are added to the price you agree on. This is a biggie, because, as you know, convenience and service fees can be hefty.

2015 Entertainment Books, which contain hundreds of 50% off and BOGO coupons for local restaurants and attractions, are a great gift. Through Tuesday, November 25th, 2014, only, take advantage of the pre-Black Friday Sale.  2015 Entertainment Books are just $25, with FREE shipping. Additional books are just $15. The full price is $35 so this is a great deal. Remember to think beyond your own city. Are you planning any vacations? Get one for that locale too. It will pay for itself. They do sell out, though, so don’t delay ordering.
