  • Beetlejuice

    In this wonderfully comic spook tale, a couple of mild-mannered ghosts call upon the obnoxious demon Betelguese to help them reinhabit their house from the new (and living) tenants. $5 suggested donation.

    7:30PM, Community First! Village, 9301 Hog Eye

    • It's … it's … HIDEOUTRAGEOUS!

      There's a stage upstairs, there's a stage downstairs, there's coffee all over the place and all sorts of shows here. This Thursday brings you the Threefer and Free Fringe of improv, and you can check out that award-winning Parallelogramophonograph (hot off their European tour) and the fancy-ass Big Bash and more on Friday, and dig the Goonies-flavored goodness of How I Saved the World Over Summer Vacation on Saturdays, right after the Eighties-evoking police drama of Buddy Cop and right before that extemporaneous donnybrook that mortals call Maestro. See website for more. $5-15

      The Hideout Theatre, 617 Congress, 512/443-3688

    • Metamorphosis

      This here’s a one-night-only, WEST-leveraging, pop-up show from the crew responsible for the Eastside’s stellar Dimension Gallery. Featuring not only visual art by Terra Goolsby, Magdalena Jarkowiec, Colin McIntyre, Moya McIntyre, and Cherie Weaver … but also performance art by that Jarkowiec, Aux Aux, and Jennifer Sherburn.
