The Twin Cities offer some of the most varied and highest-quality theater in the country. This meetup is for theater-goers who want to attend and talk about performances. Feel free to PM me if you're going to something and would like to offer it up so others can join you.
Dance performances, and multi-genre live performance works with an emphasis on theater and/or dance are also appropriate here.
[Note: Please, no standup comedy, opera, musical comedies, or related; there are other Meetup Groups focusing on those genres.]
If you're affiliated with a venue or performing company, please contact the organizer privately for guidelines; you'll need to find a staff person or volunteer from your organization who will serve as host to welcome and facilitate introductions among Meetup attendees.
There is no minimum number of shows you sign up for, so it's pretty low-key, though there are certain requirements (see below). Have you ever thought about volunteering to be an usher? At Park Square, if you volunteer, you get to see the show you are ushering for, free.
Because volunteer ushers are the "face" of the theater, they must be committed to excellent customer service.
Ushers show up at least an hour before curtain, in "uniform" (at Park Square, it's a plain white blouse or shirt, black pants or skirt, dark socks, and black shoes). Ushers help seat patrons, hand out programs, monitor the theater during intermission, and after the show pick up the programs, cups and other items that theater patrons may have left in the theater.
Yes, it's work, but hey--you get to see the show (a ticket worth $38-$50+) for free! If you might like to try ushering for a show or two this season at Park Square, contact Judy, the volunteer coordinator, to let her know of your interest, and she can get you linked up.

Do you wish that there were a few other people who'd like to see the same play or dance performance with you? Decide where people will meet up with you, and how to find you. Commit to a day and post the information here as a "suggested" event. (You might need to view on a laptop/desktop to see the suggested-event link.) Just fill in with the form! Any questions, contact Kathy A through the private messaging system (to contact a person individually, click on a person's name to go to their profile, and use the "send a message" link). Maybe think of a place to suggest to meet for a drink before, or a meal afterward, too.
