RODGER HUDGSON No one can mistake the long flowing hair-do that’s been the same for as long as we can remember: the “voice of Supertramp,” Rodger Hudgson, is ready to rock. With quick flying piano fingers and his oddly high tenor voice he’ll immerse you in the sounds of tunes like “Take the Long Way Home” and “Goodbye Stranger.” Ah who are we kidding, we can’ get over that vegetarian-fed hair.

Most plays are either comical, serious or musical but “scary” has never been a word to describe theatre. This play has actually been around since 1987 and since then it’s proved itself worthy among the other more, shall we “optimistic” (or rather sing-songy) plays. It’s the ultimate scary story of a man who attempts to find the secret behind the mysterious woman in black.

There’s a place in the desert where choosing right and wrong isn’t really an issue. At the Full Moon Party there will be a  Desert Rhythms Drum Circle open to guests with the best and worst sense of percussion. Let fate choose your way as you your fate read in the cards in hopes of a glimpse into the future. But really, the goal here is to build a sense of community and connection between everyone.

It is a crazy world we live in and sometimes you just have to look at it through different “Perspectives.” Five amazing artists will showcase their Chicano and Latina world as they let their art speak for itself about issues that also speaks to many of us. Each artist has a different message and a different artistic style that they deliver, such as David Rosales who paints metaphors like aliens and flying sombrero saucers to exaggerate the fact that immigrants are stereotyped as aliens. Or Linda Vallejo, who isn’t afraid to poke fun at politics or society by Latino-izing Western pop icons.

Thru Nov. 24. Gallery hours: Wed-Sat, 12pm-4pm. The dA Center for The Arts, 252-D S. Main St., Pomona, (909) 397-9716;
