Scientists agree that children are our future, which is why most children are sealed in time capsules with a flashlight and a stack of magazines. Glimpse the future of acting with today's Groupon: for $12, you get one adult ticket (a $14 value) and one ticket for kids 12 and under (a $10 value) to see kidsActing's production of Monsters! at Center Stage Texas (a $24 total value). This Groupon is valid for performances on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays August 6–13. Friday performances start at 7 p.m., Saturday performances are held at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., and Sunday performances begin at 2 p.m. Call ahead to reserve seats.
With full-scale plays and musical productions, kidsActing turns the spotlight on young thespians. Founder Dede Clark and her troupe of budding actors reprise kidsActing’s popular 1991 musical comedy, in which a young monster from the under-the-bed dimension stumbles into the human world. Original songs by Willie Nelson, the Austin Lounge Lizards, and other Texas performers punctuate the coming-of-age action that, unlike United Nations peace talks between Scotland and Loch Ness, ends in a reconciliation between monsters and humans.
Several kidsActing alumni have gone on to star in Broadway musicals, national television shows, and dramatic tax-audit re-enactments.
