Though now commonplace, acting was condemned in colonial times as "public lying," with offenders being yanked off the streets with novelty-sized shepherd's crooks. Embrace vaudevilliany with today's Groupon: for $12, you get two tickets (up to a $24 value) to a Pickerington Community Theatre stage show, performed at Pickerington Christian Church. This deal is good for tickets to any of the 2011 season's remaining shows, including:

A member of the Ohio Community Theatre Association, the Pickerington Community Theatre is the community's outlet to watch and partake in all types of live-action comedy and drama. Ticket-wielding theater enthusiasts can enjoy watching talented thespians put on a variety of family-friendly performances. A smile-inducing tale of a wealthy widow whose kindness and generosity pays off in the end, The Curious Savage is sure to warm even the iciest of lionhearts during the merciless month of March. During June, the family-friendly Disney's Aladdin Jr. will tell the classic chronicle of a star-crossed romance between a young man from the streets and the ethereal princess Jasmine, luckily without the dangerous man-sized flapping pages that come with seeing live animation. In September, George M. Cohan's beloved show tunes will come to life in Give My Regards to Broadway, a musical that shows the story of an entrepreneur struggling to open a Broadway show who falls victim to the alluring aura of an aspiring actress. All tickets are subject to availability, so make sure to call ahead and reserve a sitting surface.
