MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Guthrie Theater is celebrating the fifth anniversary of its Mississippi Riverfront home this weekend.

Saturday marks five years since the Guthrie opened its three-stage, $125 million complex overlooking the Mississippi in Minneapolis. The Guthrie plans a three-day celebration Friday through Sunday, featuring five special $5 promotions.

Playgoers who buy a full-priced ticket to certain performances of “God of Carnage” or “H.M.S. Pinafore” can receive a second ticket for $5. There also are $5 rush tickets for those shows this weekend, as well as $5 backstage tours, $5 Guthrie store deals and a $5 happy hour menu at the Sea Change restaurant.

The Guthrie was founded by Sir Tyrone Guthrie in 1963. Award-winning French architect Jean Nouvel designed the new Guthrie’s shimmering blue structure and Endless Bridge.
