Legendary entertainers Kenan and Kel made theatrical history when they broke down the fourth wall, and then, to the consternation of the set designer, broke down the second and third walls as well. Experience the magic of the stage with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one ticket to any main-stage show in the 2010–2011 season at Spotlight Theatre (a $25 value).
Founded to stage bold new theatrical works, Spotlight Theatre presents classics, dramas, comedies, and musicals. The theater boasts high-caliber production quality, homegrown talent, and a suspended net of tapioca-filled balloons to be dropped on audience members that linger too long after the show. The 2010–2011 season (the theater's eleventh) features nine works, including adaptations of Hamlet, The Producers, and Dreamgirls. The Drowsy Chaperone offers the whimsical tale of a diehard musical-theater fan that plays his favorite cast album and then watches in awe as the music literally bursts into life. The Great American Trailer Park Musical tells the story of a ménage à trois involving Pippi (a stripper on the run) and a married couple living in a trailer park in Florida, with a special appearance by a chorus line of trained tap-dancing alligators during intermission.
Tucked inside the historic Hayden Building, Spotlight affords an intimate theatrical experience. Concessions are available in the lobby, and free parking is located adjacent to the theater. General admission seating is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis, so theatergoers may want to take advantage of the city's underutilized and previously undisclosed jetpack rental service. Call to reserve a seat for the show of your choosing.
This Groupon is not valid for any show included in the company's "Spotlight" series.
