Bat Boy: The Musical: Ripped From "Headlines" Horror-Comedy

Buy Tickets $14 - $33 $33 - $43

Based on the infamous headline in the Weekly World News tabloid -- and hailed as a "giggling cult hit" by The New Yorker -- this hilarious modern musical tells the story of a half-human/half-bat boy by the name of Edgar. Discovered in a West Virginia cave, the local sheriff brings Bat Boy to the home of the local veterinarian, where he's accepted as a member of the family and taught how to act like a "normal" boy. But as the town's cows begin to fall victim to a mysterious plague, mayhem ensues. With its clever production numbers, infectious pop-rock score, surprising twists and a message about acceptance, this frightfully funny spoof is a classic love story with a wicked bite that's part comic book, part horror flick -- and all fun. Catch this production of Bat Boy: The Musical at the Ocean Beach Playhouse and Arts Center in San Diego.

Tony-Nominated, "Darkly Delightful" Comedy

Buy Tickets $22 - $62 $43 - $75

The devilishly funny Hand to God centers around the young students of a Texas Christian Puppet Ministry. Taught to obey the Bible in order to evade "Satan's hand," things take a darkly comic turn when one devout young man's puppet takes on a shocking personality that no one could have expected. His demented puppet, Tyrone, soon teaches those around him that idle hands truly are the Devil's playthings. Described by The New Yorker as "Sesame Street meets The Exorcist," this hilariously twisted sock puppet comedy is one of Broadway's biggest new hits, garnering five Tony Award nominations, including Best Play, and recently ranking as the most-produced play in the U.S. by American Theatre magazine. Enjoy this San Diego Repertory Theatre production of Hand to God at The Lyceum Stage.

While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. At least the losers get a juice box. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation. This bee, now at The Lyceum Space in San Diego, is one unforgettable experience.

Everything in life can change in no time at all. Case in point: Diana Spencer. In 1980, she was just an ordinary young woman sharing a London flat with a few friends, taking some cooking classes and cobbling together low-paying work as a dance instructor and house cleaner. Less than a year later she was engaged to Prince Charles and well on her way to becoming one of the most famous and influential women in the world. Not bad for a 19-year-old finishing school drop-out! Princess Diana: the Musical brings Diana's heartwarming and heartbreaking story to the stage through 32 original songs. Don't miss the San Diego premiere of this tribute to the iconic royal at Patio Playhouse.

An Epic Journey in Father Comes Home From the Wars

Buy Tickets $29 $58

The Greeks may have set the template for epics, but American history has epics of its own. Father Comes Home From the Wars, like the Greek tragedies that inspired it, is the story of a warrior setting out for battle and then making the long journey home. Set in the Civil War, this explosively powerful new trilogy by Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog) at San Diego's Horton Grand Theatre follows the slave, Hero, who agrees to fight for the Confederacy in exchange for his freedom, traveling from West Texas to the Confederate battlefield and back home again. Described as Parks' "finest work yet" by The New York Times, the Father Comes Home From the Wars trilogy -- which was a Pulitzer Prize finalist -- is a masterful blend of the serious and the comic that is at once an epic drama, a moving personal story and a thoughtful meditation on liberty and loyalty.
