It was a party like it was 1989! We had so much fun and made so many great new memories together as we launched the Sheldon’s 2019-2020 season with an 80s blowout Open House Party. There were leg warmers, off-the-shoulder tops, and lots of big hair as we all came down with a case of late ‘80s nostalgia.

“During last season’s Grand Reopening celebration, the House Party was so much fun, everybody told us we had to do it again,” said Executive Director Bonnie Schock. “It was a new way to experience this special place. So this year, we decided to honor our late 80s rebirth, and we paid homage to both the music and the culture we were living in when the Sheldon was first renovated 30 years ago.”

Here are a few highlights and memories from the evening, which encompassed the entire building, and featured live performance sets by Brat Pack Radio and Minneapolis sound pioneer Tina and the B-sides!

Warm welcome from the Sheldon doormen, David Oakes and Greg Nixon.
