Without live theater, audiences would stand and applaud their books upon finishing them, drawing uncomfortable stares from airport security. Applaud loudly and untasered with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get one general-admission ticket to Duck Hunter Shoots Angel on June 5 at Twin City Stage in Winston-Salem (up to a $22 value). The performance is at 2 p.m. and runs about two hours.
Boasting one of the largest venues in the Triad, and blessed by the muses since 1934, Twin City Stage gives the Winston-Salem community a place to both experience live theater and perform in it. Mitch Albom’s comedy, Duck Hunter Shoots Angel, follows a couple of cockamamie duck hunters who believe they’ve shot an angel and are relentlessly pursued by a cynical tabloid journalist and his reluctant photographer—but everything changes when they stumble upon a pair of wings and a tiara. Like most Thanksgiving dinners, the production wittily intertwines a love story, garish media, cultural stereotypes, and a character that is half alligator and half man.
