Tacoma Little Theatre presents the classic tale of "Sleeping Beauty" starting this weekend. This retelling of "Sleeping Beauty" by Charles Way maintains its major themes, but features a headstrong princess and additional characters, including Gryff, a half-man, half-dragon creature and a riddle-challenging Spider King.

Encore! Theater is staging a new work, “Metaphasia,” as its indoor-season musical through Nov. 18. This coming-of-age musical centered on Angie Anderson weaves adventure with upbeat, original tunes and colorful costumes as it takes a radical new look at “Twelve Dancing Princesses” and the likes of “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe” and the wizardry of some dude named Harry Potter.   

[Encore! Theater, through Nov 18, $6-$15, 6615 38th Ave., Gig Harbor,]
