A philosopher once called theater “the mask of convention over the face of society in the mirror of the unknown reflecting the rear-view of the sports car of destiny.” Simplify this theory with today’s theatrical Groupon: for $47, you get an orchestra (main level), first-terrace, or second-terrace ticket (an $83.20 value including fees) to see Grease live onstage at Clowes Memorial Hall, located on the Butler University campus. Families and groups who want seats together must use one account to make all the ticket purchases. Choose from the following show times:
- Wednesday, March 23 at 7:30 p.m.
- Thursday, March 24 at 7:30 p.m.
- Sunday, March 27 at 6:30 p.m.
Audiences of all ages find delight as Grease’s leather-clad T-Birds and poodle-skirted Pink Ladies croon and shimmy through heartfelt reflections on love and the need for better dish detergents in songs such as "Summer Nights" and "Greased Lightning." Bad-boy Danny and girl-next-door Sandy play out an archetypal American courtship, filled with the high-school dances and high-speed car races so familiar to typical teenagers. The classic musical tale turns Clowes Memorial Hall into a four-level hand-jiving parfait as memorable melodies and dance routines build toward the rapturous denouement of "You’re the One That I Want.”
