Magic Treehouse Musical on Goldstar

unnamed (13)

Annie and her brother Jack climb up into their backyard treehouse and climb back down more than 400 years in the past in the Midwest premiere of this hip-hop musical based on the acclaimed book by children’s author Mary Pope Osborne. Teaming up with none other than William Shakespeare himself, the daring sibling duo must overcome a severe case of stage fright to save the playwright’s big show — and in the process discover that history is made by people who conquer their fears. Full of Hamilton-style hip-hop beats, Magic Tree House: Showtime With Shakespeare at the Apollo Theater in Chicago is a tuneful tale of time travel and theater. Discount performance tickets on Goldstar have been added – now through February 25th. . This was published as Stage Fright on a Summer Night (Magic Tree House #25), in case you’re wondering.

Chicago Blackhawks tickets on Goldstar

The NHL season is heating up as the Chicago Blackhawks return to tear up the ice at the United Center, so grab some tickets for less on Goldstar. Led by one of the best coaches in the game, Joel Quenneville, the Blackhawks are setting their sights on their fourth Stanley Cup in nine seasons as they take on a fierce Central Division. The team is reinvigorated this year with the return of two of its championship team stars, Brandon Saad and Patrick Sharp. Nothing goes with the action on the ice like some hot chow, and the United Center’s got that in spades. Check out the tacos al pastor at Big Star Taco or an adobo sausage with chimichurri at the Chicago Sausage Shop. Wash it all down with a Goose Island brew. And for dessert how about crunching into a tub of Garrett cheddar and caramel popcorn mix?
