What You'll Get
After a play, it's customary for the players to take a bow on stage to help assure the audience they haven't really been killed, arrested, or maimed in the collapse of their gingerbread house. Suspend your disbelief with today's Groupon: for $30, you get one ticket to three different plays at Diablo Valley College Department of Drama in Pleasant Hill (up to a $60 value).
Each season, the gifted student thespians of Diablo Valley College dazzle audiences with moving productions of classic works and contemporary plays. Satisfy your dramatic hankerings with a trio of the 2011 to 2012 season's artfully staged offerings, starting with Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet , a moving tragedy inspired by the classic musical West Side Story (October 21–30). A striking, challenging contemporary piece, The Skriker fills the stage with magical realism, shape-shifting, and unearthly characters (February 3–12, 2012; restricted to adults 18 years and older). Diablo Valley's young stage stalkers also tackle Arthur Miller's The Crucible, a stirring depiction of the Salem witch hunts of the 17th century and a poignant allegory for the anticommunist hysteria of the 1950s, when Americans were required by law to consume at least three apple pies a day (March 23–31, 2012).
