RED OCTOPUS PRESENTS: "BEACH BLANKET BLOWOUT"
8 p.m., The Public Theatre. $10.

In its 19th season, Little Rock's oldest sketch comedy troupe, Red Octopus, is back with its summer installment and ready to lampoon just about any and everything that has the misfortune of being in its crosshairs. For this production, Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello get the send-up in "Beach Blanket Trilogy," the audience learns how to sing themselves free of trouble in "The Lion Queen" and Charo and Charles Nelson Reilly re-enact the goriest scenes from "Friday the 13th." The show resumes Thursday, Aug. 19, and runs through Saturday, Aug. 21.
