Let's go see some live theatre!!!

Hello everyone! I have received some feedback that people are interested in attending live theatre. This event will take place in mid to late January to give people that want to attend time to save up money. If I get enough people to sign up in advance, we may even be able to get a group discount :) Please post shows that you are interested in seeing below! Many theaters have not yet posted a January schedule, but as you see shows that interest you, post them below! I'm excited to see what everyone chooses!

UPDATE 1/7/2014  Final Details: 

Show: School of Lies

When: Friday, January 31, 2014,  at 7:30pm 

Where: Park Square Theatre

Cost: $29.00

See show information here:

*****1/27 IMPORTANT UPDATE****:

At Park Square Theater, individuals under 30 get half price on tickets, so about $19. I believe that people 62 and up, as well as ASL folks, also get a discount. It's not too late to buy your ticket! Just call the box office and ask to be seated near the Goldstar group. Once Friday hits, you can call again and ask specifically to be sat by me or you can wait until we arrive for the show :) 

I'm very excited to see everyone. Big thanks to those of you who have updated your RSVP's. You don't know how helpful that is! Again, please let me know if you have any questions.

1/30 Update:

The big day is here! I will try to arrive to this event at about 6:30 if possible. If you can't find me, my phone number is[masked]-8681. I will be wearing a black and white checkered scarf with a black jacket. I'm not too familiar with the setup of the theater, but I will be standing somewhere near the entrance. Even if you do not have tickets yet, you should still stop by! I'm sure they will have some for you (though it wouldn't hurt to call in advance). See you all soon!

    Good evening. I'm actually working late today and will be unable to make it . I had purchased my ticket weeks ago thru the link that was provided, but the theatre told me I can exchange my ticket for a future performance. Have fun guys and I look forward to watching a movie with you in the near future. Stay warm.

    Sorry, I forgot I had signed up for this. We just found out our company is closing after 28 years, and we are still kind of in shock. Need to really watch expenses at the moment, so will join in soon for a movie but have to skip this for now.

    January 30, 2014

    • Kiara

      Oh, no! I'm sorry to hear that :( I hope to see you at a different, cost friendly event soon!

      I doubt if we will be sitting by the goldstar group because the guy said he didn't know who those people were so I jut went on and got tickets before I was in the back :-)

      January 29, 2014

    • Kiara

      Weird! We must not have spoken to the same guy. No worries. I'm sure we can find seats together if we just talk to the box office once we arrive.

Call the box office as ask them if you can be seated by Bennett (my last name). They will accommodate you if they can. Please let me know if you have any questions.

      I will be buying my ticket as soon as I figure out where others who have already purchased their tickets are sitting. Sorry for the delay people! I know, I know...Procrastination and all that :

    Hi people! This event is coming up soon, so please don't forget to buy your tickets while you can! For those of you who have purchased tickets, where are you seated? I DID NOT get to purchased mine via Goldstar (so don't feel bad if you didn't either) and am headed to the box office to buy them this morning :) I want to make sure I get seats close to you guys if I can!

    January 27, 2014

  • La S.

    Do u suggest I call and order iver the phone 2morrow. I see u posted they would b $5 each through Goldstar then I see $24.... and then I see $30 posted, a bit confused

    January 19, 2014

    • Kiara

      Oh no! I changed the price above. The tickets ARE supposed to be $24. When I posted the price, there most have been a typo. Sorry for the confusion!

      Hang in there, Kiara!

    As an FYI, Goldstar only has 5 tickets remaining. If anyone is unable to get their ticket before these sell out, fear not, Park Square Theatre may still have full price seats available.

    January 19, 2014

  • Gray

    I purchased my ticket from Goldstar. If everyone purchases their ticket through the following link, the venue will do their best to put all of the seats together. Total cost is $24, so it is a good savings over purchasing direct from Park Square. https://www.goldstar.com/shows/795807/checkout/new?seating_group=dd42f76ec11e5b9fbc0f342a061a3f1188b9f0bc Let me know if anyone has difficulties using the link!

    Kiara, I see that Goldstar has these tickets for a total of $24.
    https://www.goldstar.com/events/st-paul-mn/the-school-for-lies
    Goldstar states that "Also, you have the option of letting your friends buy their own tickets and sit with you. Just send them the special URL you get when you buy your tickets and the seats they buy will be grouped with yours." so that could be a way for us to buy our own tickets and still sit together if one person purchases their ticket first and then posts the special URL here (I'd be willing to do so if you'd like). Let me know your thoughts.

    • Kiara

      Awesome!!! Don't feel as if you have to buy first, but you certainly can if you would like. I won't be buying mine until this weekend, so group members might appreciate being able to buy theirs earlier than that. Totally up to you though. Thanks for that information!

    Hey all! So I tried to keep in mind the suggestions, but some of them didn't work for me due to my own scheduling :( However, these are in the running. we'll be shooting for a date between the 23rd and 31st of January. Basically, everything I found is identical to what Gray found and posted earlier on this page. Thanks, Gray!

    I saw some interest in Triple Expresso, which I think looks great! However, I have family visiting and can't swing the dates its playing. However, it IS an option if you guys really want to see it and someone else is willing to host :)

    So many options, everyone! I haven't forgotten about you guys. Keep the ideas coming, and I'll look for the plays that seem the most popular :) Hope to post final plans around New Year's!

    I have been planning to see Triple Espresso for years, never gotten around to it. Definitely a comedy. Park Square usually has excellent plays.
