'Heathers: The Musical'

From the event description:

Teen angst sure feels deadly, but it doesn't normally come with an actual body count. Things are a little different at Westerberg High, where the Heathers rule with perfectly manicured iron fists. This version is as wild a ride as the movie, and adds a thrilling score full of upbeat pop songs and emotional ballads.

When: Thursday, Oct. 31-Sunday, Nov. 3; curtain times vary
Where: Ocean Beach Playhouse and Arts Center, 4944 Newport Ave.
Price: $15 - $34

'The Thousandth Night'

From the event description:

Join us for this award-winning solo show, which is in town for a limited two-week run. "The Thousandth Night" take places in occupied France in 1943, when an actor is arrested for propagating subversive material and is being deported. When his train is sabotaged by members of the French resistance, he escapes from the platform and seeks refuge in the train station. His one chance for freedom before the train starts moving again is to win the support of a group of French gendarmes (the audience) by entertaining them with “amusements” that are not subversive. Playing 38 characters from "The Arabian Nights," the actor becomes a male Scheherazade, spinning out stories in a chance to win his freedom.

When: Friday, Nov. 1-Sunday, Nov. 3 (curtain times vary)
Where: White Box, 2590 Truxtun Road
Price: $15
