TheaterSanAntonio.com Mission Statement:
To provide hot off the press Theater - San Antonio news along with a large selection of quality San Antonio theater seats, at competitive prices... even when they are sold out elsewhere.
It is our intention to bring you the best theater information and tickets available on the market today. We personally love the theater and hope this site reflects our passion.
One of the best venues for theater in our fair city is at the infamous Majestic Theater San Antonio. Here you'll get the latest info on theater tickets, shows, times, dates, etc. All updated in real time, which is extremely important BTW. There's nothing more disappointing to go through the entire ticket buying process only to find the theater tickets you think you are buying, are in fact already sold to someone else. This can occur when using a site that doesn't have state of the art ticketing software like our ticket brokers. This will rarely, if ever, happen with them.
