What's Happening Around Town for November 28

Avenue Q Extends
DOMA Theatre Company has extended its critically acclaimed, Ovation-recommended, sold-out production of Avenue Q through February 3. [Click Here] to read our review. Singing puppets and their human neighbors tackle life’s most vexing issues -- love, sex, money, race and how to tell your roommate he’s gay. The place is New York City and the street is Avenue Q, the only address you can afford when you're fresh out of college… or out of a job… or just trying to find your way in life. These puppets (and their human counterparts) have an irreverent take on the joys and travails of making it on one’s own. For tickets call 323-802-4990 or visit www.domatheatre.com.


Wizard of Oz Extends
Creating Arts Company has extended The Wizard of Oz through December 30 at Promenade Playhouse in Santa Monica. The 65-minute show is recommended for ages 4 and up and includes all your favorite songs from the movie. Boo for the witch, cheer for Dorothy and her friends, sing, dance and interact in this fun Mini-Musical. All children receive a special Emerald City musical instrument toy when they enter and get to meet all the characters after the show for autographs, pictures and video. This is a fun way to introduce your kids to the classic movie and songs you loved as a child. Promenade Playhouse, 1404 3rd Street Promenade, Santa Monica, CA 90401. For tickets go to http://wizardofozsantamonica.eventbrite.com/. You can also help them raise money for a community outreach program through their Indiegogo  campaign. Their mission is to offer shows and programs free for all schools who do not have funding for the arts as well as working with at risk youth. You can donate as little as $1.00 by following this link: http://igg.me/p/234026?a=1751601.
