Through Oct. 24 WaterTower Theatre presents The Taming. A patriotism obsessed Miss Georgia has kidnapped a Republican Senator's campaign manager and a liberal activist who is fighting to save the endangered pandashrew, and is holding them hostage in her hotel room the night before the big Miss America Pageant. In this hilarious, raucous, all-female "power-play" inspired by Shakespeare's Shrew, contestant Katherine has political aspirations to match her beauty pageant ambitions. All she needs to revolutionize the American government is the help of one ultra-conservative senator's aide on the cusp of a career breakthrough, and one bleeding-heart liberal blogger who will do anything for her cause. Well, that and a semi-historically-accurate trip where they search for the secret to fix our broken democracy by becoming James Madison and George Washington. Here's lookin' at you, America. Performances are at the WaterTower Theatre, 15650 Addison Road. Information: watertowertheatre.org.

Through Nov. 13 Pocket Sandwich Theatre presents Jack the Ripper: The Monster of Whitechapel. Bloody 'ol Jack is back to terrorize London with his razor-sharp knife and a basket of popcorn! A comical but scary treatment of the serial killer who terrorized London in the 1800's. Many of the characters and events are taken right from history, but others are pure comic invention. Jack's reign of terror has begun and Sir Charles Warren, a totally inept British Lord, has been appointed Commissioner of Police to apprehend him. Who is Jack the Ripper? His identity is not revealed until the end and, with three different endings, nobody ever knows for sure!! Popcorn tossing at its finest! This show is rated PG-13 with adult innuendo Information: www.pocketsandwich.com.

Oct. 22-24 The Company of Rowlett Performers present The Red Velvet Cake War at the Plaza Theatre, 521 State Street in Garland. In this riotously funny Southern-fried comedy, the three Verdeen cousins - Gaynelle, Peaches, and Jimmie Wyvette - could not have picked a worse time to throw their family reunion. Their outrageous antics have delighted local gossips in the small town of Sweetgum (just down the road from Fayro) and the eyes of Texas are upon them, as their self-righteous Aunt LaMerle is quick to point out. As this fast-paced romp barrels toward its uproarious climax, you'll wish your own family reunions were this much fun! Information: corptheatre.org.

Oct. 22-Nov. 7 Garland Civic Theatre presents The Odd Couple By Neil Simon. This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assemble for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it's no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger, who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed, and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds, Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born. Performances are at the Granville Arts Center, 300 N. 5th St. Information: www.garlandcivic.org.
