Though it is illegal for pranksters to shout about nonexistent fires in a theater, shrieking after an encounter with an underseat gum wad is permissible. Shout about what's on stage instead with today's Groupon: for $7, you get one general-admission ticket to The Full Monty at the Aurora Arts Theater (up to a $14 value).

A nonprofit community venture, the Aurora Arts Theater strives to enrich the Corpus Christi area by providing live performances that showcase the talents of local artists. Based on the book by Terrence McNally, The Full Monty follows the au-naturel aspirations of a group of unemployed steel workers in Buffalo who concoct an unlikely money-making scheme after taking note of their wives' captivation with male strippers. As the story and the wardrobe unfurls, the men discover the importance of friendship and regular waxes while renewing self-esteem and reclaiming control over their destinies.
Theater patrons are privy to each theatrical nuance in this intimate, 100-seat venue, which presents a minimalist aesthetic to increase the actor-audience connection and dissuade underage ushers from sneaking in. Theatergoers can silence rudely hissing bellies with snacks, wine, and soda available for purchase as the concession stand or quietly munch on complementary sardines left over from a recent production of Cats.
