Though it is illegal for pranksters to shout about non-existent fires in a theater, shrieking after an encounter with an under-seat gum wad is permissible. Shout about what's on stage instead with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two tickets to any 2010–11 show at Stage Coach Theatre (up to a $30 value for Friday and Saturday tickets; up to a $24 value for Sunday and Thursday tickets).
Stage Coach Theatre has entertained audiences for 29 consecutive seasons, shining a flashlight on the human spirit in a variety of genres, including thrillers, comedies, dramedies, and comedramlers. With the 2010–11 season in full bloom, theatergoers can pick its contemporary stage-fruits and slurp up its performance-juices. Darwin in Malibu, a comedy opening October 15, features a living Charles Darwin, 120 years after he died, engaging in a spirited debate with Thomas Huxley and the Bishop of Oxford about science, God, and lesser-known benefits of flossing. For a holiday family outing, A Christmas Twist (opening November 26) stirs the story of A Christmas Carol with a comedic straw, adding a dash of Oliver Twist and Little Orphan Annie. On April 22, Always…Patsy Cline will begin regaling theater-goers with 27 of her tunes, including memorable songs like "Crazy," "Sweet Dreams," and "That Ain't My Medical Chart, Doctor Franklin."
Season ends July 30, 2011.
