Though it is illegal for pranksters to shout about nonexistent fires in a theater, shrieking after an encounter with an underseat gum wad is permissible. Shout about what's on stage instead with today's GrouponLive deal to "An Evening with Captain Sig & the Hillstrand Brothers" on Thursday, September 15, at 8 p.m. at The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts. Choose between the following options:
- For $29, you get two mid-balcony tickets (a $59.50 value before fees, or up to a $67 value online, including all fees).
- For $35, you get two rear-orchestra or lower-balcony tickets (a $71.50 value before fees, or up to a $79 value online, including all fees).
Captain Sig Hansen and the Hillstrand brothers, of TV’s Deadliest Catch, recount action-packed sea stories at a newly restored, century-old theater in the middle of Worcester’s thriving downtown. The three captains speak frankly about the dangers facing crab and salmon fishermen in the Bering Sea, such as sudden storms and unfashionable eye patches. The infotaining evening ends with a Q&A session, which gives audience members the opportunity to address brain-tickling concerns about the television show or determine once and for all whether a whale is a fish or a mythical bird.
The Hanover Theatre’s detailed plasterwork, ornate chandeliers, and majestic second-floor mezzanine evoke the grandeur of bygone days, and its state-of-the-art sound and lighting facilitate performances of all types, from Broadway shows to operas and ballets. During performance nights, two attended parking garages let cars play chaperoned games of spin-the-bottle while their owners take advantage of the theater’s Gourmet Program to down a postperformance steak or glass of wine at one of many local restaurants (food and drinks not included with this Groupon).
Though The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
