Evening of Irish shenanigans at the State Street Theater | News, Sports, Jobs


To prepare for March weather and St. Patrick’s Day, and to get your dose of Riverdance, the State Street Theater is proud to bring a bit of Ireland to New Ulm.

An evening for the Irish and the Irish at heart is planned with a pub, music and costumed dancers on February 26.

At 5 p.m., the Shenanigans Pub will take over the backstage of the State Street Theater Company with pre-concert drinks, snacks, trivia and music.

Pub tickets are available in combination with the show ticket for $35.

Admission on the day of the event is $10, which includes a drink, pub snack, and early seat for the show. Places may be limited.

At 7 p.m., the Ring of Kerry band will take the stage with energetic Irish music accompanied by Irish dancers.

Each band member plays a variety of instruments.

Ring of Kerry puts on an entertaining musical spectacle that includes both loud pub music and lovely serenades of Irish favourites. Ring of Kerry are an accomplished band with a strong following and have produced three albums of their music.

Concert tickets are $25. Both tickets, either the combo ticket or the concert ticket alone, are available at Hy-Vee and the New Ulm Chamber of Commerce, or by calling 507-359-9990.

Online ticketing is also available through Eventbrite.

The theater address is 1 N. State St. Limited parking is available behind the theater, using the grounds entrance on Washington Street immediately after turning right on Center Street.

Guests are asked not to park in the nearby car park as it is owned by Emerson-Union Apartments.
