'Cinderella'
Dance
Ballet San Antonio brings the penultimate version of Cinderella, choreographed by acclaimed artistic director Ben Stevenson (he transformed Houston Ballet into one of the country’s finest companies and made his name with Cinderella) and set to Sergei Prokofiev’s romantic score, to downtown. The production puts forth some truly ugly, slapsticky stepsisters, enchanting fairies (and godmother, of course) and one of ballet’s great pas de deux between Cinderella and her Prince. $35.45-$83.45, 7:30pm Thu-Fri, 2 and 7:30pm Sat, 2pm Sun, Lila Cockrell Theatre, 200 E Market, (210) 404-9641, balletsanantonio.org.

'Willy Wonka'
Theater
The Magik Theatre revives its successful take on Roald Dahl’s classic novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. While we’re partial to the creepy film version starring Gene Wilder as Wonka, we’ll take Magik’s charming stage rendition of Charlie’s magical visit to the Wonka cocoa heaven, complete with oompa-loompas and delightful brats Augustus Gloop, Veruca Salt and Mike Teavee. Opening night will have a special chance for audience members to find their own golden tickets, good for a variety of prizes. $20 (Oct 11 performance only), $9 (seniors, military, educators) $10, 9:45 and 11am Tue-Fri, 7pm Fri, 2pm Sat, Magik Theatre, 420 S Alamo, (210) 227-2751, magiktheatre.org.

'Evil Dead the Musical'
Theater
The perfect date night for those couples who continually argue about whether to watch Les Miz or Texas Chainsaw Massacre. This touring musical adaption of the camp classics combine elements of all three original Evil Dead flicks, with lantern-jawed hero Ash singing his way through demon humor, severed limbs and lots and lots of blood. Seriously, Evil Dead’s claim to fame is being “the only musical in the world with a splatter zone.” $20 (students and military) $26 (seniors and SATCO members) $33, 7:30pm Oct 12, 19, 8pm Oct 18, 25, 31, Nov 1, 2, 10:30pm Oct 26, Cameo Theatre, 112 E Commerce, (210) 212-5454, cameocenter.com. Through Nov 2.

'Peter and the Starcatcher'
Theater
Last year’s debut of Peter and the Starcatcher raked in five Tony awards and was compared to “the best bedtime stories” in a review by The New York Times. The family-friendly, Victorian/steam-punk-inspired musical is based on a children’s novel by Dave Barry (the syndicated humorist) that details Peter Pan’s pre-Wendy history. Like its protagonist, the production creates magic out of simple stages and weaves an adventurous tale that takes its orphan hero from the sea to the jungle. $37.75-$91.60, 7:30pm Tue-Thu, 8pm Fri, 2 and 8pm Sat, 1 and 6:30pm Sun, The Majestic Theatre, 224 E Houston, (210) 226-5700, majesticempire.com.
