“Evil Dead the Musical 2010”
2nd Street Theater and Coffman Vision Clinic present this “Rocky Horror”-style resurrection of last year’s production through Oct. 30, which appeals to a wide variety of audiences. It does contain strong language and content, and this year’s show features a “Splatter Zone” section in the front row. Fake blood flies, so patrons may not want to wear their nicest clothes.
Thursday through Saturday shows are at 8 p.m. with Sunday matinees at 5 p.m. The show closes on Halloween Eve with a 7 p.m. and midnight show. There is a special discounted show on Wednesday, Oct. 13 when all seats are $13.

Disc golf course reopened
Central Oregon Community College reopened its disc golf course on the west side of the Bend campus Oct. 2. The course had been closed due to the high fire danger in the region. The course will be monitored closely to ensure that all participants follow college rules related to smoking, drinking and littering. The course has been open since 2001 and is accessible to students and other members of the community at no charge. For information, contact Bill Douglass at 541-383-7794 or bdouglass@cocc.edu.

All ages rock climbing offered by Park District
The Redmond Area Park and Recreation District offers many programs for youth and adults. After school enrichment programs, rock climbing, swim lessons, music, quilting, arts and crafts are some of the offerings.
The last rock climbing session for the fall is scheduled for Oct. 23 at Smith Rock State Park. Ages 7 and up are invited, and this outing is a great start for those trying outdoor rock climbing for the first time. The day is all about having a good time while getting acquainted with the equipment and techniques used in rock climbing. Many routes are as easy as climbing a ladder. And participants can challenge themselves on routes ranging in height from 40 to 100 feet with the security of a top-rope and under the supervision of a professional climbing guide. Those wanting to push their limits can be accommodated. All equipment is provided. A waiver/release needs to be completed prior to the climb. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to the park.
