This Weekend’s Top 5 Goldstar Events

goldstarMy name is Laura and I am a Goldstar addict.

If you’re unfamiliar with Goldstar, it’s a discount ticket site for theatre, live music, comedy shows and many other activities. Most tickets are half off the full price, and you pay a minimal service fee ($3-4). Some shows or events also offer comp tickets, so with the service fee you’ll end up paying about $5 for a ticket – it’s such a great deal!

When you go to the site, you do have to sign up right away, but feel free to do so then unsubscribe from the emails right away. I like getting them, though, and still check the site almost daily because you never know when something new will pop up and some sell out really fast.

Read on for my top 5 list of what’s going on this weekend.

1. Mary Poppins at Chanhassen Dinner Theatres – CDT consistently delivers high quality theatre and this show is very family friendly. Whether you’ve seen the movie or not, you’ll love joining the Banks family’s adventures topped off with a spoonful of sugar. The ticket price is well worth it! Click here to read my full review.

2. The Velocity of Autumn at Old Log Theatre – This is a two-person Tony-nominated Broadway play about an aging mother and her son. Alexandria doesn’t want to move to a nursing home, so she’s barricaded herself in her house and her son Chris has to crawl through a window to get to her. Cherry and Spoon calls it “smart, funny, poignant, relevant, beautifully written and acted.”

3. Scream: A Drinking Game at Phoenix Theater – Shadow Horse Theatre presents A Drinking Game the first Saturday of most months. They pick a popular movie, assign roles, select 5-6 drinking cues and read the script aloud. When they read one of the drinking cues (words or phrases), the audience drinks! The catch is, cast members also have to drink when another character says their character’s name. It gets downright silly & hilarious and I can’t recommend this one enough.

4. Throwback BNW: Junk From Our Trunk at Brave New Workshop – Let’s face it, everyone can always use a good laugh and you’re guaranteed to laugh when you spend an evening at BNW. I haven’t missed a show in who knows how long, and every time I’ve brought someone new they’ve said they can’t believe they hadn’t been before.

5. The Church Basement Ladies at Plymouth Playhouse – Admittedly, it’s been a lonnnnnng time since I’ve been to PP but I always hear wonderful things about them. I love that a show like The CBLs has been around for 10 years, and it’s definitely worth celebrating. Join Karen, Mavis and Vivian for some music, laughter and maybe a few heartfelt tears.

So there you have it. Enjoy your weekend!
