    The Austin Puppet Incident

    This ain't no kiddie show, citizen, this is an evening of short puppet works – naughty, heartbreaking, harrowing, hilarious, and always original – for adult audiences, from a variety of local puppet artists using shadow, hand-and-rod, tabletop, object, and physical theater techniques. And how do we know it's 1) legit and 2) the best in town? Because it's presented by Glass Half Full Theatre and Trouble Puppet Theater Company, with funding from the Puppet Slam Network.
    Fri.-Sat., Dec. 9-10, 8pm. $15.

    A Christmas Carol

    [NOTE: CANCELED DUE TO COVID] Zach Theatre's adaptation of the Dickens classic is "a musical sleigh ride through rhythm and time, infusing the traditional Victorian story with a score that spans all genres and eras," as directed by Dave "Hardworkin'" Steakley. Which is all well and good, but we're happiest because Austin's own Marc Pouhé plays that Ebenezer Scrooge. [NOTE: CANCELED DUE TO COVID]
    Through Dec. 31. Times vary. $25.
