Puritanical tropes are shed and Hester Prynne is reborn in Aux Dog Theatre's production of In the Blood, an updated retelling of the Hawthorne's classic. This play—penned by Pulitizer Prize-winner Suzan-Lori Parks—introduces us to Hester La Negrita, and the underbelly of American life. Acted and directed by a cadre of local talent, this imaginative piece of theater creates new in-roads with modern audiences. It opened Nov. 16, and runs weekends (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) through Dec. 16 with tickets at just $12. Find tickets online at auxdog.com. (Maggie Grimason)Aux Dog TheatreIn the Blood

The Keshet Center for the Arts has always been a community leader when it comes inclusiveness and innovation in the local and statewide dance scene. Artistic director Shira Greenburg retired the much loved Nutcracker on the Rocks in 2016 and is back with a new show and another year of storytelling through self-introspection with Alice, an Adventure of Wonder and Wondering. As with all of Keshet's heart-filled performances, the show features dancers both professional and community-based from ages 8 to 80 of all abilities. Loosely based on Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and loaded with the classic rock and jazz selections we've come to expect from the art sanctuary of Keshet, there are plenty of showings, including two sensory-friendly performances. Shows are Fridays, Nov. 9 and 16 at 7pm, Saturdays, Nov. 10 and 17 at 2pm and 7pm, Sundays, Nov. 11 and 18 at 2pm and 4:30pm, and a special performance on Thursday, Nov. 15 at 7pm. Prices include children 5 and under for $12.50, student, senior and military tickets are $25 and general admission for $30. Celebrate the arts for another joyous year with Keshet.
