Like the chalk line down the middle of feuding siblings’ bedroom floors, the line between comedy and tragedy is thin and can lead to melodramatic outbursts if crossed by mistake. Watch as the pros cautiously tread the boards with today's GrouponLive deal: for $22, you get two general-admission tickets to see Annie at Sunset Playhouse in Elm Grove (up to a $44 value). This Groupon is valid for December showtimes.
Since 1960, the nonprofit Sunset Playhouse has grown and flourished alongside the community that helped build it, offering access to lively performances and family-friendly classics. Making its Playhouse premiere, time-honored musical Annie triumphantly accompanies the holiday season with an adored cast of characters, wholesome themes, and songs more memorable than the alphabet screamed through a megaphone. The musical celebration's spotlight rests directly on the red-haired curls of Annie, a spunky, easy-to-root-for orphan whose persistent dreams of meeting her parents provide unfeigned tugs to audience heartstrings. Throughout the uplifting adventure, Annie joins forces with a troupe of comparably kind-minded comrades that includes Daddy Warbucks and Sandy, the latter of whom is an abandoned dog that faithfully sticks to Annie's side thanks to her habit of hiding bacon in her shoes.
