'Mr. Burns: The Post-Electric Play'

From the event description:

The stories we tell can grow in size over time, becoming exaggerated, grander, funnier and more outlandish...especially when Netflix and cell phones are no longer a thing. "Mr. Burns" is the play-turned-operetta where one ragtag group of post-apocalyptic survivors cure the ache of boredom by performing that Emmy-winning episode of "The Simpsons" -- complete with half-remembered pop song and commercial interludes. Beloved troublemaker Bart Simpson evolves into a legend more akin to Hercules in the decades following humanity's great tragedy.

When: Friday, March 13, 7:30 p.m.
Where: Art Court Theatre, 3835 Freeport Blvd.
Price: $9

'Hamlet'

William Shakespeare's longest play and one of the most quoted works in the English language, "Hamlet" retains its power centuries after being written, which explains why it has consistently been performed around the globe. The Sacramento Theatre Company picks up the mantle and explores the timeless themes in this riveting production.

When: Friday, March 13, 8 p.m.
Where: Sacramento Theatre Company, 1419 H St.

'The Sleeper'

From the event description:

A suburban "security mom," shell-shocked by the new post 9/11 reality, finds herself irresistibly drawn to her son's tutor, a handsome young man with political leanings far different from her own. Her "awakening" leads to a bizarre series of events that blow the lid off her previously sheltered existence and change the lives of all around her. A dark and slightly zany comedy.

When: Saturday, March 14, 8 p.m.
Where: The Wilkerson Theater, 2509 R St.
Price: $10
