This Weekend’s Top 5 Goldstar Events

goldstarGoldstar is 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/in, 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. Minnesota Dance Theatre: New Works & Timeless Favorites at The Lab Theatre – The space alone is a wonderful reason to check out this show with its sky-high exposed brick walls. This will be the perfect setting for a world premiere piece by Minnesota Dance Theatre member Helen Hatch, a re-envisioned work and two revitalized classics. MDT is a non-profit company founded in 1962, and we’re so lucky to have them bringing us these beautiful contemporary and classic dance works.

2. The Odd Couple at Henry Sibley High School – Even if you’re already familiar with Felix & Oscar, this time it’s Florence & Olive in a female version of The Odd Couple. Playwright Neil Simon wrote both shows, so if you’re a fan of the male version, you’ll be sure to like this one too. After services fees, pay as little as $5.75 to see this!

3. Stevie Ray’s Comedy Cabaret at Chanhassen Dinner Theatres – Shout out your own suggestions and enjoy a night of improvisation. The best part about CDT? You can order drinks and food at your table so you won’t miss a thing. The Comedy Cabaret takes place every Friday and Saturday.

4. Radio FEAR at Mounds Theatre – The Conundrum Radio Players will take over this haunted theater and get you in the mood for Halloween, which is just around the corner. The stories include Isaac Asimov’s Nightfall, Ray Bradbury’s Zero Hour, George G. Toudouze’s Three Skeleton Key and Neil Gaiman’s A Study in Emerald, all performed as radio plays complete with live sound and technical effects. I saw A Christmas Carol Radio Broadcast at Mounds in 2013, and it’s a great setting for this style of show. Bonus: street parking is readily available.

5. Philly: The Musical at Sabes Jewish Community Center – This show isn’t about Philadelphia but rather about Phyllis, and anyone and everyone will enjoy this musical complete with classic rock & traditional Broadway showtunes, along with dance ranging from tap to jazz to contemporary. It’s based on the true story of struggling songwriter Johnny Calacucci who discovers Phyllis Scarpetti in 1980 and forms a band with her in New York. Enjoy the video of the original cast below, then grab your tickets!

      Yes, they offer such a great service – we’re very lucky! And they’re national so if you travel, you might be able to use it elsewhere to save some money. Thank YOU for sharing! 🙂
