Though now commonplace, acting was condemned in colonial times as "public lying," with offenders being yanked off the streets with novelty-sized shepherd's crooks. Embrace vaudevillainy with today's GrouponLive deal for a ticket to three performances by the Cygnet Theatre Company at the Old Town Theatre. Seats must be booked by February 12, 2012. Choose between the following seating options:
• For $45, you get an economy seat for three performances of your choice (up to a $111 total value for three performances, depending on performance and show date).
• For $60, you get a premium seat for three performances of your choice (up to a $126 total value for three performances, depending on performance and show date).
The Cygnet Theatre Company has turned written scripts into lively dramatic productions since 2003, winning seven San Diego Theatre Critics Circle Awards for their 2010 season. Groupon holders can choose to attend three performances from Cygnet’s 2011–2012 lineup, which includes the troupe's last experiment with live-action pole vaulting. The wacky rock ’n’ roll musical Little Shop of Horrors will tickle funny bones and green thumbs through September 11, and a live radio play of It’s a Wonderful Life returns for a holiday-season run November 30–December 31. Rather than staging sock-puppet productions of Othello, guests can get their Bard fix with Cygnet’s rendition of Richard III, which chronicles a villain’s bloody path to the English crown October 19–November 13. The ensemble will also tackle dark Irish comedies, Tony-winning dramas, and the diaries of anthropomorphic trolleys in the 2011/2012 season.
Although the Cygnet Theatre Company sometimes features discounted prices online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
