Griot Theatre of the West Valley presents William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar at Bethel Encino. What if the assassination of the world's most powerful man were orchestrated and executed by a woman -- a woman in touch with her passions and certain of her destiny? That question lies at the heart of this production, set against the backdrop of Game of Thrones, which asks a similar question. Employing women and artists of color in nontraditional roles, this production, directed by Malik B. El-Amin, presents a fresh and compelling take on this classical work. Price is free-$12.50

Long Beach Arena

Save 25% on tickets to DRALION from Cirque du Soleil 6 PERFORMANCES ONLY!
Fusing the 3000 year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du SoleilDralion draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature. The show's name is derived from its two emblematic creatures: the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West.  In Dralion, the four elements that govern the natural order take on a human form. Thus embodied, each element is represented by its own evocative color: air is blue; water is green; fire is red; earth is ochre. In the world of Dralion, cultures blend, Man and Nature are one, and balance is achieved.

Meet Fenton, the world's most famous dog. Not content with the deer-chasing rampage that propelled him into the limelight, the world's naughtiest Labrador is off on a whirlwind tour of destruction across London.

Wherever he goes, Fenton leaves a trail of chaos; wrecking a garden party at Buckingham Palace, pestering the players at Wimbledon and upstaging the celebrities  at a Leicester Square film premiere. Keep a look out for his tracks and trails and see if you can collar Fenton before he escapes for good...

ARIES.
It’s the time to plan ahead for a trip in the  last weeks of the year .This may be a even a move of some kind. Whatever this is its best planned at least in part before mid December make sure you are setting things in order.

TAURUS
Your  priority should be taking care of you in any area that requires attention. and this may be your health as Mercury is going backwards in this area of life  for you . If you ignore this you will spend a lot more than time getting back to normal.

GEM
If you feel you need to make a move in settling some kind of emotional situation but are not sure how will be received. Now it will be easier to just bite the bullet and go for it because Mercury your boss is going backwards this next week .

CAN
You will have to be aware this next week to not be too hard on your self or another or speak out of turn to any one .The consequences are long reaching for you especially this next few days.. The month of December is better.

LEO.
Yes this is a time for the inner show person to reveal  itself for some of you who are not at the full potential of the Lion energy. Mercury in your cousin sign will wake you up or rattle your bones.

VIR
Its time for a trip back maybe in time and when you know when to look at what has worked for you and what has not ,maybe then you can say I did well with a self criticism.

LIB
You are feeling lighter literally and brighter than for sometime past .This is due to Saturn leaving you alone after two or more years in your life. Enjoy what you have learned and let go of what no longer works .In a few weeks he will visiting your money area !!

SCOR
Its will be one those weeks  you always dream about and never seem to experience when all of life appears easy  and so with this in mind tackle any area of life you have not wanted to deal with .It does  however require some upfront action in word or deed.
Happy Birthday.

SAG,
If you want to change anything waiting around for others to make the first move is not a good idea. Mercury just moving in to your life is about to go on a backwards stroll at the weekend so take immediate steps by Tuesday or wait until Thanks giving.

CAP
You may be feeling tired or worn down so it is likely as usual you are doing to much work .You are the most responsible sign of the Universe usually how ever ,even you are allowed time out. .Pluto will make you deal with the problems you are avoiding in this coming month.

AQU
 You are probably feeling a bit frustrated this week .Well that’s life for you so take a break and do not take out your frustrations on any one else it will be sure to catch you back. You have several things to finish up or reevaluate enough to keep you busy .

PISCES
Neptune your ruler along with the very powerful full moon this past week had a lot to do with the weather patterns and its stands to reason you may act the same as this weather. Unpredictable.!
