According to The Iliad, live theater was invented when a group of Achaeans, disguised as a large wooden horse, surprised their Trojan audience with a stirring performance of Hamlet. As today's Groupon proves, the military tactic blossomed into an art form that continues to evolve: for $50, you get $100 toward classes or show tickets at Youth Actors' Academy of Lincoln.
Youth Actors' Academy provides students ages 7–17 with a wide range of theatrical training including acting, singing, designing, and directing workshops. Current offerings include the Steppin' on Stage workshop ($125), which leads first- to fourth-grade actornauts through preparing a fun and silly original work to be performed for parents, friends, and a handful of major-league baseball scouts on the last day of class. Improv classes ($100) tutor students in creating humorous, unscripted theater, leaving them more time to script future social interactions with their bathroom-mirror reflections. The value of this Groupon can also be used to purchase tickets to any production at the Youth Actors' Academy.
