Half-Price Children’s Theatre Tickets in Minneapolis

We enjoy taking our kids to plays, but the cost is often prohibitive for our family.  In Sunday’s Star Tribune, however, I read about a new half-price ticket outlet in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, and it includes the Children’s Theatre Company.  Goldstar * half-price tickets to theater, concerts, comedy and sports is currently offering tickets for this weekend’s performances of Disney’s Mulan, Jr. at half price, with a range from $12.50-$20 instead of $25-$40.  Fees are $4-$5 per ticket, but buying directly from CTC has a $3.50/ticket fee built in.  For this Saturday’s morning performance of Mulan, Jr., the cost for our family of two adults and four children would be $201.00 if ordering directly from CTC, and through Goldstar it would be $116.00.  A disadvantage is that you don’t get to pick specific seats, but according to their FAQ, you are guaranteed to sit with your group and be seated in the section you pay for.  It looks like a good deal to me.

If you’d like to be notified of upcoming Goldstar events (which also include sports, music, and other theatre tickets), you can sign up with Goldstar and request notifications.  If you use this link when signing up (there’s no charge or obligation for signing up), I’ll get a small referral bonus for telling you about Goldstar.

I’ll be keeping my eye on Goldstar for some good deals so our family can attend more theatre and music events.  Have you used Goldstar?  Do you know of any other ways to save money on tickets?

    If you are heading to Las Vegas Vegas.com has some good deals and or upgrades. We got the perfect seats for the Lion King with a Vegas.com upgrade. Growing up my parents and I would go to the theater alot (with one kid you can do that) so it was nice to share this legacy with my kids.

    Also just keep your eyes open. A traveling theater from New York did a very cheap production of Max and Ruby at our local ampitheatre recently. It was absolutely wonderful and only about $5 a ticket!
