What You'll Get
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 $15, you get a ticket to High School Musical at the Springer Opera House (up to a $38 value) in downtown Columbus. The show runs March 3–5, March 10–12, and March 17–19 at 7:30 p.m., and has a matinee performance at 2:30 p.m. on March 13.
Based on the hit Disney movie, High School Musical delights audiences with catchy tunes and snappy dance numbers. The musical chronicles the travails of Troy and Gabriella, two star-crossed high-school sweethearts from different cliques, as they try to overcome their school's intergroup feuds, win parts in the upcoming musical, and investigate how everyone learned specific songs and choreography for every situation.
Performances take place in one of the South's most celebrated theaters, the Springer Opera House––a Georgia landmark that opened in 1871. Theatergoers will enjoy their recommended doses of song and dance in regal fashion, safely cushioned in red gilt-adorned plush seats. Between numbers, patrons can take in the operatic spectacle of the space, admiring the majestic sweep of the double balconies, the airy arch of the proscenium, the delicate tulip lights illuminating the space, and the resident phantom's 348 consecutive Monster of the Month awards lining the walls. Groupon buyers should call ahead to reserve seats, and tickets can be picked up at the box office the day before the performance.
