¡Andele!

Regret is a terrible emotion with which to live. It can gnaw at you for years, trapping you in a sad cycle of longing and self-recrimination. Do not let this happen to you. The deadline for our seventh annual Photo Contest is nigh. Go to alibi.com and click on “Photo Contest 2010” for all you need to know about how to enter. Get your submissions in by 11:59:59 p.m. on Sunday, March 14. Like most things that happen on the Ides of March, late entries are unlucky and will not be considered. The Photo Contest issue hits the streets on March 25. Don’t hate yourself for missing out.

Real Characters

Albuquerque, though we may love it, has its share of sketchiness; like the neighbor who keeps putting baby doll heads in your mailbox, or the grocery store that smells like murder. Thankfully, the students of CNM are doing their part to bring sketchiness a whole new meaning with Sketchy, an evening of short pieces written by CNM faculty and students. The show runs at The Vortex (2004 1/2 Central SE) this weekend only, March 11 through 14, with performances Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 6 p.m. Tickets are $7, and reservations can be made at vortexabq.org or by calling 247-8600. Any weirdness is intentional and won’t bring down property values.

Those Who Can

There's an old saying that those who can, do, and those who can't, teach. This saying is, if you'll pardon me, horse crap. All great teachers are doers—studying and thinking and creating and inspiring. Here's your chance to see what it is some of our most talented teachers do. Meta Morph is a presentation of dance choreographed by UNM's dance faculty and guest artists, performed by dance program students at UNM's Rodey Theatre. The eclectic program runs through March 14, with performances on Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 and 6 p.m. Get tickets ($15, $8 student and $10 senior, plus service fees) online at unmtickets.com or call 925-5858.

The Legacy of a Young Girl

In conjunction with Anne Frank: A History for Today (see "Outside the Attic" by Samara Alpern on this page), ABQStages presents the Pulitzer Prize winning play The Diary of Anne Frank. The performance, directed by Hal Simons, runs at The Filling Station (1024 Fourth Street SW) through March 21, with shows on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $16, $14 students and seniors, $10 children. For more information, call 515-9149.

Also at The Filling Station, hear a reading of a new play by Eliot Stenzel called The False Witness, which imagines Hitler on trial for his crimes, defended by Martin Luther and prosecuted by Frederick Douglass. The reading is Sunday, March 14, at 7:30 p.m. Go to fillingstationabq.com for more.
