Give the gift of live entertainment. You choose the amount and your recipient can choose what event or events they want to see. When you buy an Empress Theatre Gift Certificate you have the option to email it directly to your recipient, or pick up your gift certificate at the box office. An Empress Gift Certificate has a special coupon code that your recipient uses to redeem their gift. If a show is $25 and you gave them a $50 gift certificate, they will use the code and it will deduct $25 from their account leaving them with $25 available to use for another show.
