Matt Sheehy performs "Aberdeen" at RadarStation in Wenatchee Saturday.


Aberdeen: 7:30-10 p.m. Saturday, RadarStation

Matt Sheehy’s one-person live performance tells, in story and song, his experience in Aberdeen, Washington, after taking a job as a forester in 2008. His new home — a remote and run-down cabin in the woods — was supposed to be the perfect place to reflect and write songs about a recent breakup and the devastating loss of his mother. But things have a way of taking unexpected turns in Aberdeen, as he learns from his eccentric neighbors, the Floods. Matt's efforts to help the couple lead to discoveries about the nature of the multiverse. The show is at RadarStation, 115 S. Wenatchee Ave. Tickets are $24. radarstationart.com.

"Arsenic and Old Lace:" Weekends through June 30, Masquers Theater, Soap Lake

"Arsenic and Old Lace," the classic 1940 comedy, runs weekends through June 30 at Masquers Theater in Soap Lake. The play tells the story of the eccentric Brewster family including sisters Abby (played by Rosalee Chamberlain), Martha (Cheri Barbre) and Teddy (Jeremy Hansen). Everyone in town knows the sisters for their charity work, but nephew Mortimer (Andrew Covarrubias) and his fiancée Elaine (Emma Russell) soon see cause for concern after his criminal brother Johnathan (Lui Navarro) shows up with his friend Dr. Einstein (Jesse Huntwork). With 12 gentlemen in the cellar, a body in the window seat, Elderberry wine, and Mortimer going crazy trying to get rid of Johnathan and protect his aunts, this farce brings a laugh a minute. Fellow cast members are Mark Beyer as Elaine's father; Isaac Winter, Cynthia Beyer and Nick Mahaney as the friendly but dimwitted police; Bevan Olstad and Steven Yakish as potential charity cases; and Bob Jasman as tough Lt. Rooney. Adam Zaleski directs, with assistance from Holli Bosnar and Mystia Zaleski. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays. Tickets available at www.Masquers.com, or call the box office at 246-2611.
