Live theater tends to be more thrilling than film, largely due to the heightened odds of seeing someone flub a line or deliver a stirring monologue while sitting in your lap. Witness truly dramatic close-ups with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $10, you get two tickets to see Into the Woods at South Jordan Community Theatre (up to an $18 value).

The recipient of numerous Tony Awards upon its Broadway debut in 1987 and subsequent revival in 2002, Into the Woods marries a number of Grimm’s fairy tales with the mellifluous touch of storied composer Stephen Sondheim. South Jordan Community Theatre co-founder and Into the Woods director Kevin Dudley describes the musical as a means to “examine our dreams through nearly every fairy tale we were familiar with as children,” and relishes the second act’s poignant portrayal of what it truly means to live “happily ever after.” Talented local performers round out the 20-person cast, and music director Michelle Willis returns to the orchestra pit after taking a sabbatical to master the ring whistle.
