June 11, 12, 13 and June 18, 19: Upstage Theatre presents The Girl, The Grouch and The Goat
  • Music and lyrics by Broadway composer Mark Hollmann transports us back to ancient Greece. A girl has fallen in love. The grouch is her father, who finds out his daughter is in love with the son of his sworn enemy and locks her up. The goat is what the town will sacrifice to get rain to end the draught and , therefore, the gauging of the Grouch who owns the only well in town. Lots of folks end up at the bottom of the well but happiness overcomes.
  • 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sunday, June 13.
  • Lambert Hall, 1703 Heights.

Today thru Thurs, June 10: Houston 48 Hour Film Project
  • More than 1,000 local filmmakers accepted the challenge, resulting in 70 teams taking a whole 48 hours to complete a four-to-seven-minute-long film, start to finish. Each team is given a surprise prop, a character and a line of dialogue that must be included in the film. (Last year's prop was a ball, the character was an officer and the line was "I'm just not sure about that.")
  • From The Houston Press: There are comedies, dramas, mockumentaries, romance and science fiction. One of the more challenging genre selections, according to Houston producer Laura Schlecht, is musical or western. "Some people make a musical, some make a western, but every once in a while we get somebody who makes a musical western. That's always fun," she says.
  • Each entry will be screened twice during five separate screening blocks so viewers will have multiple opportunities to see the offerings. 5:30 and 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, 5:30, 6, 8:30 and 9 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday.
  • Studio Movie Grill CityCentre, 805 Town and Country Lane. SMG serves drinks and food in the theater, as well
