Though it is illegal for pranksters to shout about nonexistent fires in a theater, shrieking after an encounter with an underseat gum wad is permissible. Shout about what's on stage instead with today's Groupon: for $25, you get two tickets (up to a $50 value) to the Missouri Ballet Theatre's production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Edison Theatre, located on the Washington University campus. Choose from three performance times:
- Friday, May 13 at 7:30 p.m.
- Saturday, May 14 at 2:30 p.m.
- Saturday, May 14 at 7:30 p.m.
Newly jetéd from the brain of artistic director Adam Sage, the Missouri Ballet Theatre enriches and entertains the community through public performances, outreach programs, and collaborations with local artists. The dynamic performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream tells the story of Shakespeare's comedic play through graceful movement and classically trained donkey heads. Students from Washington University’s performing-arts department leap and plié alongside guest performers from the Nashville Ballet and the Missouri Ballet Theatre’s own dedicated dancers, transmitting via twirling toes a story of crossed love, laughter, and the perils of going camping without the appropriate pixie repellant.
