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 Groupon: for $22, you get two tickets to Nunsense at Sunset Playhouse in Elm Grove (up to a $44 value). This Groupon is valid for all performances between January 12, 2012, and February 5, 2012.
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. In the popular musical comedy Nunsense, the wisecracking Little Sisters of Hoboken help audiences cast post-holiday blues aside with irreverent tunes including “So You Want to Be a Nun,” “Just a Coupl’a Sisters,” and “We’ve Got to Clean Out the Freezer.” After the convent’s well-intended cook's toxic soup accidentally kills 52 nuns, the few remaining sisters are left to scramble for money to send their friends out in style. The resulting talent show's jokes and dance routines keep audience members giggling and tapping toes while making mental notes to check the expiration date of Crystal Pepsi cans currently in the fridge.
