What we're about

Public Group

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 get together to attend and engage in discussion about performances. The group facilitates members inviting each other to get out and go to shows.

Come participate in this group! Contribute your ideas and energy to make the group a fun and stimulating way to learn about theater and meet fellow theater enthusiasts. Feel free to use the Suggested tab on the home page to propose an event that you would coordinate--just enter the specifics of where you are going, and when. With more than 2,400 people, it is likely that other people will join you. Please include information about where, when, and how to find you.

Dance performances and multi-genre live performance works with an emphasis on theater and dance are also appropriate here.

[Note: no standup comedy, musical comedies, or related; there are other Meetup Groups focusing on those genres.]

If you are affiliated with a venue or performing company, please contact the organizer privately for guidelines; you will need to find a staff person or volunteer from your organization who will serve as host to welcome and facilitate group discussion among Meetup attendees.
