    Latino Comedy Project: Estar Guars!

    Emmy-nominated sketch troupe the Latino Comedy Project return with their hilarious, thoroughly Mexified sendup of some pinche Jedi shit that happened pretty recently in a barrio just across the tracks. Or, rather, the LCP presents a "loving homage of live comedy, original videos, and visual spectacle, re-creating the classic sci-fi rebellion as a modern-day Resistencia, complete with Galactic Walls, space chanclas, migrant moisture farmers, fearless princesas, mystical abuelas, and the targeting of Sanctuary Planetas by an evil empire determined to MAGGA (Make A Galaxy Great Again)." Did we say "hilarious" earlier? We weren't kidding. Written and directed by Adrian Villegas, brought to spicy space opera life by a talented cast, this show's recommended to make you laugh your asteroids off. Note: Performed mostly in English with some Spanglish.
    Through May 8. Wed.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 5pm. $25-28.

      Out of Ink: Unusual Embrace

      ScriptWorks' 23rd annual ten-minute play showcase features, among its wild diversity of characters, half-coyote/half-human teens, an improv troupe, a boy made of glass, and an invisible boy. This lively show reveals ScriptWorks members' interpretations of three mandatory script ingredients – a moment when a list becomes the only means to communicate; something that cannot be seen by the human eye; an unusual embrace – that provided inspiration during last fall's "Weekend Fling 48-hour Writing Retreat." The short scripts, written by Robin Anderson, Maggie Gallant, Ava Love Hanna, Andra Laine Hunter, Zac Kline, Briandaniel Oglesby, Greg Romero, and Anne Wynter, will be performed by an ensemble of actors under the direction of Lowell Bartholomee, Carl Gonzales, Ellie McBride, Christina J. Moore, and Sharon Sparlin.
      Through April 30. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $14-16 (pay what you wish, April 21).
