Second is for the THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: Symphony of the Goddesses 2017 Concert

The show will be on July 21st (Friday) at 8pm. Tickets are $43.50.

The concert will feature a new piece from the newly released Breath of the Wild, an all new movement from Skyward Sword, an updated overture, and the return of a classic piece that might just make some wishes come true!

Celebrating 30 years of stirring virtual adventure and memorable soundtracks with live orchestral renditions directly approved by franchise producer Eiji Aonuma, The Symphony of the Goddesses is now in its fourth season. The two-hour concert comes to life with a 57-piece orchestra, 20-person choir, and a reimagined score that draws from recent and requested Zelda games, including A Link Between Worlds, Twilight Princess, and the remake of Majora’s Mask, while still paying homage to such classics as Ocarina of Time and A Link to the Past. The concert’s five-movement symphony regales ears with Nintendo composer Koji Kondo’s original music, recalling moments of Link conquering dungeons, running through forests, and struggling to decide what color tunic to wear. Throughout the evening, a video collage syncs up with the adventurous tunes to spotlight exciting moments from the venerable franchise.

The third is for Mystery Science Theater Three Thousand (MST3k) Live

There will be two shows: July 21st and July 22nd (Each at 7pm). Ticket prices range, starting at $30.

For the first time ever, join Joel Hodgson, creator/host of the critically-acclaimed “Mystery Science Theater 3000” TV show and its new host Jonah Heston (Jonah Ray) as they bring the first live touring production of MST3K to a city near you on the “Watch Out for Snakes!” Tour.

Appearing with Joel and Jonah live on stage will be robot companions Crow, Tom Servo and Gypsy, along with Synthia (Rebecca Hanson) and her Bonehead henchmen. Of course, it wouldn’t be MST3K without the ever-present surveillance of the Mads, Kinga Forrester (Felicia Day) and TV’s Son of TV’s Frank (Patton Oswalt) checking up on their unwilling test subjects via remote video.

The tour consists of two separate, completely unique shows, each with separate admissions. Fans wanting the complete tour experience should purchase two tickets, one for each show. Each event will include all the things expected from an MST3K experience: a cheesy B movie, hilarious riffing, wisecracking robots, silly sketches plus – for the first time – audience participation! Show # 1 is the MST3K favorite “Eegah” featuring all new riffs and sketches.  Show # 2 is a “Secret Surprise Film!” It’s a fun, sci-fi thriller never-before featured on MST3K and will appear only in select cities.

The two live shows are written by the cast and scribes of the new Netflix Original Series, which earned a critics’ rating of 100% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, whose site hails, “Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return picks up right where its predecessor left off, retaining all the cult classic’s crucial ingredients and adding a handful of fresh twists.” MST3K is a Peabody Award-winning show, nominated for two Emmy Awards, and named one of Entertainment Weekly and TIME’s 100 best TV shows of all time and one of Rolling Stone magazine’s Reader’s Poll – Best Comedy Shows of the 1990s (March, 2016). Rolling Stone also listed MST3K among the “100 Greatest TV Shows of All Time.”  The TV show relaunched in April on Netflix after the record-breaking #BringBackMST3K Kickstarter Campaign.
