"Booger Red"

From the event description:

Booger Red survives a rough childhood to become a renowned Hellfire and Brimstone Southern Baptist preacher. Can Preacher's Kid Jimmy find a way out from under Booger Red's larger-than-life shadow as he grows up and finds his own voice? If you've ever had a dream or a daddy, Jim Loucks' gritty and passionate solo performance is for you. Loosely based on stories from Loucks' childhood, "Booger Red" is the story of someone finding their own unique voice, resisting the pressures of society's ideas of who they should be, and forging their own way. 

When: Saturday, Nov. 9, 3:30 p.m.
Where: MATCH, 3400 Main St.

A Magical Evening of Magical Theater: Selected works of Ben Plopper

From the event description:

Ben Plopper has no earthly idea how he got here, from a day job as a technical writer for a financial services company to a featured playwright. He is constantly surprised at even the modicum of success he has had writing for (and winning) several Spontaneous Smattering 24-Hour Play Festivals and for a goofy play about vapid, self-absorbed Brits who are so focused on their extramarital affairs and planning the perfect dinner party that they didn't notice a zombie in their midst ("The Importance of Eating Earnest").

When: Saturday, Nov. 9, 8 p.m.
Where: The Company OnStage, 4930 W. Bellfort Blvd.
Price: $9
