Much like a marriage proposal, quality theater demands nerves of steel, memorization of lines, and enough pulleys and ropes to make the flying scenes look authentic. Profess your unwavering love for the arts with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get two adult season passes for Hip Pocket Theatre’s summer lineup of shows (up to a $150 value).
Entering its 35th year of production, Hip Pocket Theatre offers audiences a vigorous cocktail of live entertainment, infusing its quirky style into music, dance, theater, and even smatterings of puppetry. Adventurous art lovers gain admission to any performance of the summer season, including the opening production of Johnny Simons’ Girls from Girdleville Defend Men in BVDs from Bullies in Briefs, the third play in the Girdleville Girls series and the first to draw its influence entirely from elastic undergarments. Audiences also encounter the themes of death, frustrated love, and menacing mesh nets in a textured adaptation of Federico Garcia Lorca’s symbolist work, The Butterfly’s Evil Spell.
Each of the company’s organic presentations takes place under the expanse of the star-riddled Texan sky at Hip Pocket’s outdoor theater, and tickets can be redeemed in any combination, allowing for a solo adventure, a couple’s outing, or a solo couple on an adventurous outing with a pet cactus.
