PERFECT QUIET PLACE April 20 through May 27. Elite Theater Company presents the world premiere of this thriller written by Tom Eubanks. Sixteen-year old Hannah lives in a California girls’ dormitory. When a night watchman named Marshall begins coming to her room at odd hours to reprimand her and her two fellow students for curfew violations, things begin to disappear from her room and, mysteriously, her ability to play a multitude of musical instruments disappears as well. Marshall and Hannah’s relationship takes them on a journey of self-discovery that exhumes Hannah’s past and turns her reality into a nightmare of delusion and deception – and nothing will awaken the truth like confronting pure evil. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Petit Playhouse in Heritage Square, 730 S. B St., Oxnard. 483-5118 or www.EliteTheatre.org.
