Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

But the Côte d'Azur is not big enough for both men, and they make a winner-take-all bargain involving a rich American heiress. (7:30 p.m. Fri.-Sat., 2 p.m. Sun., 1:30 p.m. Wed., 1:30 & 7:30 p.m. Thu.

Anne of Green Gables

Opening: This old-fashioned classic was adapted by Sylvia Ashby. The buttoned-up Marilla (Jane Hammill) and her less severe brother Matthew (Rod Kleiss) had hoped to adopt a boy to work on their Prince Edward Island farm, but the orphanage sends Anne (Mabel Thomas) instead. Dona Werner Freeman directs a 16-member cast at Theatre in the Round. (8 p.m. Fri.-Sat., 2 p.m. Sun. Ends April 12. 245 Cedar Av. S., Mpls.; $15-$22, 612-333-3010, www.theatreintheround.org)


The Nature Crown

Opening: The Guthrie Theater presents a Theatre Forever production that was conceived and directed by Jon Ferguson. Dominic Orlando wrote text for the show, which was created by the ensemble. The work is touted as "a celebratory narrative event exploring origin, innocence, community and change." The story is told through the eyes of a man who is jolted from his reality during a crossroads in his life. Ferguson likes to use movement and strong physical gestures — including clowning — in his work. (7:30 p.m. Fri.-Sat., 1 & 7 p.m. Sun., 7:30 p.m. Thu. Ends April 5. Guthrie Theater, 818 S. 2nd St., Mpls.; $15-$30, 612-377-2224, www.guthrietheater.org)
