M’ colleagues with the Twin Cities Theater Bloggers (TCTB) and I are super excited to finally be able to share something we’ve been working on for several months now. We’d like to think of it as a Prom date with the TCTB! We have been looking for ways in which to engage with our readers in person. When we saw the announcement from Chanhassen Dinner Theatres (CDT) that their next production was going to be The Prom we were surprised and thrilled! Just last Spring the touring production of The Prom was here at the Orpheum Theater in Minneapolis and it was fantastic! I even urged people at the time to make sure they went while it was in town, don’t wait for it to inevitably play at Chanhassen, assuming that would be a decade or so down the road. Also, the CDT always puts on a good show, the one criticism some of the bloggers have is that if anything, CDT plays it a little safe in choosing which shows they produce. Well, The Prom isn’t playing it safe, it’s trying something new, that made this the perfect show to partner with to try something new ourselves.
So here’s the deal, click on this link: https://bit.ly/TCTBPROM and select the March 4th Matinee performance. This will get you $20 off each ticket, instead of $80 for the meal and show it’s only $60. But that’s not all! After the performance we’ll be hosting a talkback with the Director of the show and three of it’s stars. It’s a great opportunity to hear them talk about what the show means to them and what it was like putting it all together and there will be an opportunity to ask them some questions. As a member of the TCTB, I’m excited for this opportunity to meet and share a show with our readers. We are discussing other ways in which we can connect and if this goes well, look for us to do similar events in the future. I’d also like to thank CDT for trying this with us and providing this discount for our readers. I believe this production is going to be something special. If you haven’t seen The Prom, you’re missing one of the best shows to come out of Broadway in recent years. Not convinced? Check out my review from last springs production here https://bit.ly/3xvqUqT. Did I mention that the food at CDT is really tasty? It is!
