  • One Ounce Opera: Jackass Opera Auction

    Can even the professionally trained singers of Austin's acclaimed One Ounce Opera perform in these high hazard conditions? Belting out classical aria while there's a pair of headphones full of Nickelback invading their ears? Properly diva-ing up the Donizetti while some fool tickles their bare feet with a feather? And what about that pie in the face? The OOO's golden-throated virtuosi test their limits at this annual fundraiser, engaging in such wild shenanigans – and screening videoclips from the movie Jackass overdubbed with opera – and unleashing all manner of musical japery amid instances of actual, bona fide vocal glory. And the auction part? That's where you get to bid on and choose the obstacles the OOO must contend with, O cruel citizen: You get to throw these wacky stones in their passway as the excellent party, perfect for a Sunday afternoon, rocks on. Recommended. Sun., Oct. 4, 2pm, $20-30 ($15, in advance)

  • Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play

    Suggestion: Cancel all your other plans and see this thing. It's Anne Washburn's wildly praised, Simpsons-evoking homage to storytelling and popular culture. Listen: "After the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors share a campfire and begin to piece together the plot of 'The Simpsons' episode Cape Feare entirely from memory." And seven years later, the survivors' performance has mutated further. And 75 years after that, the transformation continues. This production is directed by David Long, with Jill Blackwood and Marc Pouhé leading the St. Ed's cast. Through Oct. 4. Thu.-Sat., 7:30pm; Sun., 2pm, $18-24

    Mary Moody Northen Theatre at St. Edward's University, 3001 S. Congress, 512/448-8484
