Holiday Show! 


The days cool, the light softens, and The New Standards Holiday Show looms into your viewfinder: Friday and Saturday, December 5-6, 2014 at the State Theatre in downtown Minneapolis.

While you swam and fished and picnicked in the sun, we like proverbial elves have been scheming for monthspreparing our gifts to you: the joyful rediscoveries of songs we embrace during the too-brief yuletide season, our naughty and nice list of special guests, our potent nog.

We want you all to come along with us, to ride our holiday chariot. But we also know that last year's show sold out in a heartbeat. And so we invite you to please buy your tickets in time to secure the seats you want. 

Tickets for The New Standards Holiday Show will go on sale at 10AM on Friday, October 3rd.

We love love love hearing how the show has become a tradition for friends and families. It sure has for us and we can't wait!

Tickets may be purchased in person at the State Theatre Box Office (805 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis, 55402); online at; by calling 1.800.982.2787; or visiting a Ticketmaster Center. Prices range from $35 to $100 depending on seating preference. All prices include applicable facility fees; additional service charges may apply.
