A cappella groups can mimic an entire orchestra, from the ping of a triangle to the self-pitying sigh of a triangle player. Sound off with this GrouponLive deal to see Voca People at Hershey Theatre. For $29, you get one G-Pass for orchestra seating on Saturday, April 6, at 7:30 p.m. (up to a $53.25 value, including all fees). Doors open at 7 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
Covered in white paint and sporting ivory tuxedos, the eight members of Voca People, having accumulated more than 40 million hits on YouTube, form a playfully surreal spectacle that erupts in a cappella musical medleys praised as "otherworldly" by Time Out New York. Opening the show with a spaceship crash, the octet of singing aliens solicit audience help to refuel their craft with the tunes that power its engine and the fresh laughs that they sell for usurious prices to depressed planets. Venturing into the seats, the euphonious extraterrestrials absorb musical memories from showgoing brains, delving into earth's musical heritage with more than 70 instrument-free extravaganzas that include a lightning-fast recap of Western music and covers of Queen and The Doors.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
Hershey Theatre, conceived in 1933 by noted philanthropist and chocolatier Milton S. Hershey, stands as an opulent tribute to the performing arts. Taking architectural cues from Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice, the foyer’s towering arches gleam with golden paint and crystal chandeliers. The blue-and-gold mosaic that leads to the main seating area is the masterwork of two German artists who spent two years on its construction. Once inside the theater, audiences might think they’ve stepped onto the streets of Venice thanks to the atmospheric ceiling, stonework facades, and gondoliers paddling them to their seats.
