Although it’s been ostracized by the five traditional senses, the sense of humor is the only thing that enables human beings to detect a rubber chicken creeping up from behind. Stay on guard with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $13, you get two general-admission tickets to see a play by Prairie Dog Productions at Prairie Dog Playhouse (up to a $26 value). Doors open at 6:45 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings, with shows beginning at 7:15 p.m. For Sunday matinees, doors open at 1:30 p.m., with shows beginning at 2 p.m. All seats are general admission. Choose from the following options:
- Vampire vs. Wolfman, running September 16–October 30
- Scrooge…Older, but Miser!, running November 18–January 8
- Gnat Man!, running February 3–March 18
- James Blonde, running April 13–June 3
For 12 years, Prairie Dog Productions has tickled funny bones both young and old with original scripts that parody pop culture and classical stories. Just in time for Halloween, season opener Vampire vs. Wolfman skewers the vampire mania that’s reared its fanged head over the past few years. Local talent instills the yuletide values of generosity and humane reindeer ownership in Scooge…Older, but Miser! before jabbing superhero stories in the vividly costumed Gnat Man!. With casual cabaret seating, families can snag seats together to enjoy the ageless appeal and peroxide-squirting pistol of international super spy James Blonde.
