12 Seven Day Stretch
Is she having a good hair day, or a bad day? Well, we suppose it all depends on the kind of adventures that Pippi Longstocking and her associates are getting themselves into. After all, it’s not every day that you’ll find a little girl taking control of her own life’s direction!
Opens Thurs, June 23. Thru July 10. Yucaipa Little Theatre, 12135 California St., Yucaipa, (909) 790-1884; www.yucaipalittletheatre.com.
A DELIGHTFUL QUARANTINE
Can you imagine being stuck in the city of Fontana? (Sorry, no going to Rialto or Etiwanda!) That’s the setting of this original comedy/drama by Mark Dunn, which finds Fontana residents in quarantine. What goes down when folks are all in one spot? And how does that affect relations with one another? Directed by Zaccharin Thibodeau.
Fri, 7:30PM. Center Stage Theatre, 8463 Sierra Ave., Fontana, (909) 429-7469; www.centerstagefontana.com.
RED BULL MANNY MANIA
Red Bull is back with another crazy and zany contest, and this time they are aiding and embedding in the injury of young skaters—God bless Red Bull’s hyper-energized soul! In a series of qualifiers—including this one in Rancho Cucamonga—the company will be recognizing skaters based on their skill and creativity. In other words, the more risk, the higher the reward. Don’t even bother signing up unless you can defy gravity for at least 2.5 minutes while simultaneously hanging upside down 20 feet from the ground—give or take a few inches.
Red Bull Manny Mania at Active Ride Shop, 10399 Foothill Blvd. Suite 104, Rancho Cucamonga, (909)-987-9928; www.redbullusa.com/mannymania. Sat, June 25. Practice noon, competition 2PM.
This show’s the Rodgers & Hammerstein-penned Cinderella story you’ve loved with a special twist—instead of the typical three-act performance, the Candlelight’s modified it to become a two-act show. However, all the greatness of this classic fairy tale is totally intact, delivering fun and enjoyment for the entire family. Directed by John LaLonde.
Opens Fri. Thru July 31. Candlelight Pavilion, 455 W. Foothill Blvd., Claremont, (909) 626-1254; www.candlelightpavilion.com.
