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 $5, you get one ticket to Reefer Madness (a $10 value), presented by Avenue 10, located in downtown Amarillo. Parental discretion is advised for those younger than 18. The show runs April 8 through April 30 on Friday and Saturday nights at 8 p.m. The house opens at 7:30 p.m., and seating is first come, first served, so early arrival is recommended.
Voted Amarillo's Best Theatre Group in 2009 by CityVoter, Avenue 10 offers a premier theater-arts experience through exciting exhibitions, musical performances, and staged productions showcasing local acting and directing talent. Inspired by the 1936 film it shares a title with, Reefer Madness charts the hysteria unleashed when a batch of clean-cut kids falls prey to marijuana, sending them on a raucous, pot-fueled downward spiral toward depravity punctuated by a bevy of big musical numbers. Filled with Broadway-style showstoppers and Vegas razzle-dazzle, the comedy brims with irreverent political and religious satire, stylized spoofery, and, for audience members, a possible case of vicarious munchies.
