Twenty Four Hour Theatre kicks off at the Repertory East Playhouse in Newhall this Sunday, Aug. 16, at 8 p.m. Contrary to what the name might indicate, this is a roughly hour-long show of short comedic plays. The actors and directors are given their scripts the night before the show, and they have 24 hours to prepare.

Review: 'District 9'

I suppose there's no reason the first alien race to reach Earth shouldn't look like what the cat threw up. After all, they love to eat cat food. The alien beings in "District 9," nicknamed "prawns" because they look like a cross between lobsters and grasshoppers, arrive in a spaceship that hovers over Johannesburg. Found inside, huddled together and starving to death, are the aliens, who benefit from a humanitarian impulse to relocate them to a location on the ground.

Review: 'The Time Traveler's Wife'

Clare is in love with a man who frequently disappears into thin air, leaving behind his clothing in a pile on the floor. "It can be a problem," he observes. Henry is a time traveler, and his trips are out of his control. Another problem is that whenever he arrives at another time, or even returns to the present (whenever that may be for him), he is naked. Well, that makes sense. You wouldn't expect his clothes to travel.
