The Peninsula Youth Theatre production of “Seussical” is set to open Saturday and run through May 22 at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St.

Pear dishes out 'Slices' this weekend

Pear Theatre continues its season with “Pear Slices 2016,” the 13th installment of its celebration of short plays by local playwrights. It is scheduled to run today through May 29 in Mountain View.

As befits the Pear’s new and larger space, “Pear Slices” will be nearly twice its usual size – presented as two alternating evenings of seven plays each. Each performance slate is independent, and audiences can choose to see one set of plays (Slate A or Slate B) or all 14. A Saturday matinee has been added this year for patrons who prefer to see all 14 plays within 24 hours.
