Though it is illegal for pranksters to shout about nonexistent fires in a theater, shrieking after an encounter with an under-seat gum wad is permissible. Shout about what's on stage instead with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a subscription to the LateNight Series at Footlight Theatre's Fall 2011–Spring 2012 season (up to a $45 value).
The Footlight Players' community theater has provided a cultural and creative outlet for the community for the past 80 years. The edgy 9 p.m. comedies of the LateNight Series offer audiences an enjoyable and affordable theater experience. This season features zero movie trailers and three plays including Topdog/Underdog, a darkly comic reflection on identity, race, America, and siblings which took home the Pulitzer Prize in 2002. Boys' Life follows recent college grads as they trip over their own tangled relationships while exploring the big city, The Bible: The Complete Word of God (Abridged) is a 90-minute retelling filled with slapstick humor and minimal costumes and props. During all performances, a cash bar flows freely to quench thirsts with drinks, $10 buckets of beer, and liquefied drama masks; check the schedule for available dates.
