Huntington Beach's Ballet Repertory Theatre will open its 36th season this weekend by staging the technically challenging "La Bayadère" at Golden West College. For the second time in four seasons, the hometown company with a shoestring budget will present its rendition of the full-length ballet — which the Frenchman Marius Petipa first choreographed in St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1877 — and usually is performed by the world's most prestigious ballet houses. "Obviously we don't have glamorous sets, but the story is complete — everything is intact," said Terri Sellars, who has restaged a Kirov Ballet version of the tragic love story set in ancient India.

Professor Darrell Ebert was thrilled. "This is probably one of the highest-level shows that you could find in an educational gallery," he said. Now in his 43rd year at Golden West College, Ebert teaches sculpture, painting, two- and three-dimensional design classes, and curates the campus' Fine Arts Gallery. "The intensity and level of quality of work is so high," he said, covered in a paint-spatted smock as he gestured to the gallery. "It's so professional. " Golden West just opened a new art show, "Pressing the Limits," which showcases 40 prints made by a quartet of New Mexico-based artists: Michael Costello, Willis F. Lee, Jennifer Lynch and Mitchell Marti.

In the pantheon of great American playwrights, three names stand out: Eugene O'Neill, Arthur Miller and Tennessee Williams. And few would dispute the notion that, when assessing Williams' work, his masterpiece was "A Streetcar Named Desire," which won the Pulitzer Prize. This tale of steamy passion and shattered dreams, set in New Orleans in the late 1940s, has been tackled over the years by a few of the more ambitious community and collegiate producing groups. In this, the 60th year since the movie version hit the big screen, it's currently being played out on the massive stage at Golden West College in a searing, emotionally involving production.

Oscar Wilde was among the wittiest playwrights of his generation and, even if that period was the late 19th century, his words still carry an appreciable bite. Take, for instance, "The Importance of Being Earnest," Wilde's final play and one that still is revived locally about as frequently as any of Neil Simon's scripts. Currently, it's occupying the Mainstage Theater at Golden West College in a physically handsome and philosophically tweaking production. Wilde wrote of upper-class London society, tossing zingers of dialogue around like grenades.

The official title of Sunday's show at Golden West College is Bands and Bellies VIII. To a scorekeeper, though, it's more like Bands and Bellies 1, Community 7. Over the last two years, producers Alec C. Marken and Sarah "al Nour" Baxter have hosted seven Bands and Bellies shows, which bring together musicians, dancers and other artists. Of those shows, only one was a for-profit endeavor. The rest of the time, Marken and Baxter have diverted all of their net proceeds to nonprofits or charitable causes.

Many Americans on Sept. 11 paid tribute to the servicemen and women who have fought in the past decade's wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. This Sunday, the commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks will have passed, but U.S. troops will still be overseas. And Golden West College will again be doing its part to assist them when they come home. The college plans to host its sixth annual Chefs for Scholarships fundraiser, in which nearly three dozen local restaurants, wineries and breweries offer food and beverage samples.
