State of the Arts: Pendragon Theatre

Four. Thirty. Five.

That's the price per gallon of gas in Saranac Lake, N.Y., and the motivation behind a marketing ploy at Pendragon Theatre.

To encourage carpooling and relieve a parking crunch, the Pendragon is giving drivers of high-occupancy vehicles $5 off admission to summer series shows. Drive in with three people or more, and you can buy a gallon of gas, a couple of cookies at intermission, whatever.

Generally the Pendragon stages four plays throughout the summer approximately 60 shows total and the price of an adult ticket is $20. "It's a bit of a gesture," Managing Director Bob Pettee said of the promotion. "Symbolic, perhaps, but it's a way to save on gas."

Now if only that idea would drift to this side of the lake . . .
