VALDOSTA — “Arcadia”: By Tom Stoppard. Synopsis: “‘Arcadia’ transports us delightfully between 1809 and the present, puzzling over the nature of truth and time, the amusing differences between the Romantic and Modern, and the disruptive influence of ‘carnal embrace’ on our orbits in life.” Lab Theatre. Run dates: Feb. 20-26.
“Evita”: Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Tim Rice. Synopsis: “‘Evita’ tells the story of Eva Peron, the second wife of Argentine President Juan Peron.
