  • Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre's "Oliver!" runs Thursday and Saturday at UCA.

Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre continues, with its one non-Shakespearean show of the season, "Oliver!" The musical is based on the Dickens classic "Oliver Twist," and it will be performed at UCA's Reynolds Performance Hall at 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Saturday, $27.

Fans of gothic folk are advised to check out Maxine's, which will host folk/blues-tinged duo Some Dark Holler and country-informed singer/songwriter Bonnie Whitmore, 8 p.m., free.

Live at Laman continues this month with The Mercers and Charlotte Taylor, Laman Library, 7 p.m., free.

If you're looking for some classic rock-inspired Red Dirt sounds, don't miss Micky & The Motorcars, Stickyz, 9 p.m., $8 adv., $10 day of.

Oklahoma singer/songwriter Samantha Crain returns to White Water Tavern, with Parker Milsap, 9:30 p.m.

If for some reason you'd like to observe a charlatan hoodwinking the bereaved and credulous live and in-person, you're in luck, because "psychic" and TV host John Edward will be at Robinson Center Music Hall, 7 p.m., $45-$95.

Fans of sketch comedy will probably want to check out Red Octopus Theater's "Electric Octopus," 8 p.m. Thursday through Friday. Grown-ups only, as usual.
