ELEPHANT’S GRAVEYARD Through Aug. 5. It was 1916. There was a town. There was a circus. And there was a murder. When the Sparks World-Famous Shows Circus pulls into the quiet town of Erwin, Tenn., the residents of the sleepy little hamlet can hardly contain their excitement. But when a member of the circus commits a horrific crime, the townsfolk demand justice. Building on both historical fact and legend, Elephant’s Graveyard questions how good people can, if only for a moment, turn into monsters, unleashing a deep-seated American craving for spectacle and revenge. $12-$18. Santa Paula Theater Center, 125 S. Seventh St., Santa Paula. 525-4645 or www.santapaulatheatercenter.org.

Standing in the way is WBC Muay Thai Champion Luis “El Shogun” Bio, a Mexican rising star known for delivering nonstop action in the “super fight” of the evening. The evening showcase is “Muay Thai Xtreme – Beach Bash 1” – a single-elimination tournament in search of America’s “Best in the West” in the 126 weight class – the first step in a national competition to crown America’s world-class fighters in the search to achieve their dream as part of a new TV reality show.

Through his guitar mastery and remarkable songwriting, Northern California-based Cain has established himself as a musical force to be reckoned with.

Handy Blues Awards nominations, including ‘Guitarist of the Year.” Cain’s ever-busy schedule keeps him and his top-rate band on the road performing at some of the best blues festivals and events around. Opening for Cain: Tommy Marsh and Bad Dog, fronted by VCBS-sponsored Wednesday night Jam leader, guitarist-vocalist Tommy Marsh; and L.A. area favorites (and recent International Blues Challenge competitors) Kelly’s Lot, featuring dynamic vocalist, Kelly Zirbes.
