Albuquerqueâ€™s annual celebration of storytelling featuring stories performed by local storytellers Steven Pla, George Williams, Sarah (Juba) Addison, and visiting storyteller Pete Griffin from Juneau, Alaska.
Adapted from the Broadway hit, A Year With Frog And Toad KIDS is based on Arnold Lobel's well-loved books. Part vaudeville, part make-believe, the play tells the story of a friendship that endures throughout the seasons. This tale is brought to you by the Cardboard Playhouse Theatre Company.
Performances will take place at South Broadway Cultural Center (1025 Broadway SE) on Feb. 12 and Feb. 13 at 7 pm and on February 14 at 2 pm. Tickets are $10 per person for reserved seating and are available at southbroadwaytickets.com.

What would happen if Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis sat down to debate? A play put on by the Fusion Theatre Company asks just that. It will be in Albuquerque tonight and tomorrow night at 8 p.m. at the South Broadway Cultural Center (1025 Broadway SE). Then, it moves onto The Lensic Theater in Santa Fe (211 West San Francisco). Alibi theater critic Leigh Hile’s got the scoop.

Bit characters from Hamlet wander to their demise at Theatre X
By Leigh Hile
This is no spoiler: “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead.” An ambassador from England announces this at the end of Hamlet and this masterpiece from Tom Stoppard. Anyone who is familiar with Hamlet or has even read the title of Stoppard's classic absurdist drama has a pretty good idea of where they play's action is headed. Even the protagonists, at various turns in the story, know they're going to die, though they either forget or willfully ignore the information upon receiving it every time.
The premise may sound familiar as our real presidential election approaches, but this piece written by David Mamet is so absurd and pointless that it fails to connect to anything bearing resemblance to reality.
House theatre reviewer Leigh Hile digs into the sprawling historical dramatization of the Battle of Gettysburg. The play is perfect for history buffs, Hile writes, and will be at The Filling Station through Sunday.
