Lightwire Theater presents “Moon Mouse”, a cosmic adventure about celebrating differences.

Marvin the Mouse wants to be popular. Constantly bullied and picked on by the “cool” rats, he is labeled as a loser and a geek. As respite, Marvin retreats into his science books and a world of fantasy. He longs to have adventures and be the hero.

Join Marvin on the space adventure of a lifetime: a trip to the surface of the moon on his homemade rocket. There he meets a strange cast of misfit creatures, learns of infinite peril and views awesome beauty. Will Marvin make his dreams come true and experience the glory and acceptance he craves?

The show will be performed at 4:30 PM and 6:15 PM.

Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco San Francisco CA

Requiem is a contemporary art exhibition that is inspired by the largely unknown story of the Chinese American diaspora, and the significant role of Hong Kong charity Tung Wah Group of Hospital’s efforts in repatriating dislocated Chinese bodies in the United States since the 19th century. During the Chinese Exclusion Act, Chinese in America had limited access to burial lands and saw homecoming as the significant ritual for the dead. Relying on local family associations as mini agents, and using Hong Kong as terminal, Tung Wah Group of Hospitals facilitated the repatriation of the bones from the U.S. back to their home in China. In response to this history, Chinese Culture Center invites third generation Chinese American artist Summer Mei-Ling Lee to reflect on the legacy, and at the same time, explore topics of homecoming under the global context of diaspora .

EXHIBITION DATE: OCT 26-DEC 23, 2017

The Paramount Theatre Oakland

Oakalnd Ballet presents Graham Lustig’s Luna Mexicana, a family-friendly celebration of the Mexican Day of the Dead, at the Paramount Theatre on Friday, November 3 at 7pm. The program features festive choreography, vivid costumes, striking makeup and a mix of folkloric and modern Mexican music. Based on traditional Mexican Dia de los Muertos celebrations, where the living honor the spirits of the dead with offerings of food, music and dance, Luna Mexicana tells the story of a young woman whose departed loved ones joyously dance back to life in the form of teetering skeletons, skirt-swishing girls, a high flying “deer dancer” and a rickety bride and groom duet.

Tickets are $20-$45, with discounts available for seniors, college students, and children under age 18.
