Today-Saturday

"The Drawer Boy." Hyde Park Theatre mounts its second production of Michael Healey’s darkly humorous play that 10 years ago netted the company a string of local awards. Healey’s play finds an eager young actor whose theater collective is writing a play about farming visiting two middle-aged Canadian farmers who live remotely by themselves and have a strange relationship. One farmer is stern and curmudgeonly; the other’s war injury has cost him his memory. They share secrets from the boy and from each other. Featuring Michael Stuart, Jon Cook and Ken Webster. $18-$22. 8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays through April 26. 512-479-7529. www.hydeparktheatre.org.Hyde Park Theatre, 511 W. 43rd St.

"The Invincible Czars Play Graham Reynolds and Peter Stopschinski."

Among their many projects and incarnations, Austin’s Invincible Czars have become known for Czarifying/Austinizing their favorite works by composers such as Tchaikovsky, Ravel and Mussorgsky. Now Austin’s emperors of eclecticism have set their sights on two of the city’s own composers – Graham Reynolds and Peter Stopschinski.

Among Austin’s best-known composers, Reynolds and Stopschinski have collaborated with an ever growing roster of artists with material ranging in scope from rock songs to dance/theater works. Their list of collaborators includes virtually every cutting-edge arts organization in Austin
