Pear's 'Geeks' gone after Sunday

This is the final weekend to catch Pear Theatre’s “Geeks vs. Zombies.”

A departure from the standard Christmas fare, the play is a gory funfest from the creator of “Super Villian!!,” a hit at the Pear two holiday seasons ago.


Los Altos Stage Company is all about 'Us' this weekend

Los Altos Stage Company’s production of “From Us, To You: A Musical Celebration of the Holidays” is slated to open Friday and run through Sunday at Bus Barn Theater, 97 Hillview Ave., Los Altos.

The performance follows an enthusiastic group of holiday lovers as they prepare to put on their annual Christmas show. When a series of unexpected events threatens to derail the performance, only love and understanding will get the players back on track.

The musical made its New York debut last season and became the first Broadway or Off-Broadway production to be livestreamed.

Peninsula Youth Theatre’s “A Christmas Carol,” the latest production in its “Stories on Stage” series at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, is slated Friday and Saturday.

Based on Charles Dickens’ classic tale, this stage adaptation was created especially for “Stories on Stage” by K. Gardiner. It tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge – the meanest, stingiest man in London. But one Christmas Eve, he is visited by the ghosts of three spirits who provide him one last chance to set his life in the right direction.
