The movie won the Oscar for Best Picture in 1990, and now you can see the play! It’s being staged in Brookhaven, at Oglethorpe University’s Conant Performing Arts Center.
Tickets are half price this weekend, thanks to a Goldstar deal.
The play is set against the historical backdrop of Atlanta’s civil rights movement in the mid-20th century. It follows the relationship between aging Southern matron Daisy Werthan, her long-suffering son Boolie, and her chauffeur Hoke Colburn, as it unfolds over 25 years of friendship, loss, racial tension, and — ultimately — love.
You can get more info about the performance at the Georgia Ensemble Theatre website.
Regular price tickets are $35, and Goldstar is offering them for $17.50.
We’ve looked at the checkout process, and Goldstar is charging a flat $5 ticketing fee per ticket, so your final price is $22.50.
The play runs through July 21st, but the Goldstar half-price deal is being offered only for performances this weekend:
- Saturday, June 29th at 8 p.m.
- Sunday, June 30th at 2:30 p.m.
Goldstar often adds new dates to the deal — so if you’re interested but cannot go this weekend, please check back!
These tickets qualify for Goldstar’s Easy Cancel policy, so if your plans change before the event date, you can get credit for the money you paid.
Goldstar does not assign seats — you will get seat assignments when you pick up the tickets at Will Call. But this venue is a small, intimate theatre and there really are no bad seats in the house.
