Soccer moms face off against emo kids from the next housing tract over in "Block Party," the Friday-night improv comedy show with a suburban theme at the Blue Door in the Garland District. And even though "Safari" shows continue on Saturdays at 9 pm, tomorrow night at 8 pm is your last chance to enjoy the "Block Party" ruckus. Just $7, and the shows are different every night!
She'll pirouette smack-dab into a larger-than-life clay figure in The Golem and the Ballerina, a new play by Christopher Lamb — he also directed, choreographed and will play the principal dancer — to be performed at the Company Ballet School, on Argonne Rd. at Empire Ave. (just three blocks north of Trent) on Saturday night at 7:30 pm and on Sunday afternoon at 2 pm. Just $6.50 to see hordes of dancers in a confined space.
Rancid Crabtree and 100-year-old Ed will fend off ghosts and aliens from outer space (that is, if Ed can stay awake) at the Rockin' B Ranch this Saturday out at Stateline (I-90 and Exit 299). Doors at 5:30 pm, dinner at 6:30, show at 7:30. For $35, you get three kinds of meat and taters and corn on the cob and a pre-show and lemonade that comes out of barrels in the rafters.
