This experiment leads to a separation of the self and creation of Jekyll’s evil side, Mr. Edward Hyde.

WATER IS RISING
The familiar sound of alarm rung by environmental scientists and activists alike has become background noise in a social existence concerned more with competing lines of smart phones than with an uncertain ecological destiny. This is not the case for the island natives of Kiribati, Tokelau and Tuvalu, three islands facing first-hand effects of climate change. Instead of pointing fingers at the First World, 36 renowned performers from the islands have banded together to raise environmental consciousness through song and dance. This is your wake up call.
Tue, Oct. 18. 8PM. $15-$30. “Water is Rising: Music and Dance amid Climate Change” at University Theater, 900 University Dr., Riverside, (951) 827-4629; www.ucriversidepresents.ucr.edu.

THE DIRTY SHOW WITH CORY & CHAD
It’s one thing for one of your kids to be a comedian but it’s an entirely different show when both of your kids, twins in fact, grow up to take the mic in the name of comedy. Apparently Cory and Chad were moving a lot as kids which pushed them to develop charismatic traits in order to make friends. Nowadays they’re performing a successful but adult-only show. Leave the kids at home for this one.
Wed, Oct. 19. 8PM. $10. Ontario Improv, 4555 Mills Circle Ontario Mills, Ontario, (909) 484-5411; www.improv.com.
