The history of theater goes all the way back to the 1970s, when audiences were eager to see "living movies." See how far these unfilmed talkabouts have come in only 40 years with today's Groupon: for $9, you get one reserved-seating ticket to The Borrowers presented by Childsplay (a $18 value) at the Tempe Center for the Arts. This Groupon is valid for Saturday 4 p.m. and Sunday 4 p.m. showtimes from April 30 to May 22.

Voted Best Children’s Theatre in 2010 by the Phoenix New Times, the Childsplay professional theater company delights young audiences and families with awe-inspiring, imaginative productions. The 2010–11 season welcomes to the stage Mary Norton’s classic The Borrowers, an enchanting story of a tiny family living under the floorboards that survives by nipping things from unsuspecting "human beans." The lonely protagonist, Arrietty, ventures upstairs in search of friends and finds a thrilling new world that is also full of excitement, danger, and runaway dust-ball boulders. Peeping youngsters will have their minds tastefully blown away by the creative use of shadow puppetry used to highlight the scale of the two different worlds and the Victorian science-fiction look and feel of the sets and costumes.

This production finds its home at the Tempe Center for the Arts, which comes fully stocked with magnificent views of Tempe Town Lake and the Papago Mountains. In addition, visitors will find a multitude of restaurants and shopping close by in the Mill Avenue District, as well as a new candy store for rewarding well-behaved children and refueling sugar-powered SUVs.
