Sky season

Sky Performing Arts has announced the rest of its 2008-09 season. All shows are at Sky Valley Education Center, 17072 Tye St., Suite 118, Monroe:

“Dia de los Muertos”: 4 to 6 p.m. Nov. 2. Latinos Unidos and Sky Performing Arts present a Latin American tradition that honors ancestors with flowers, music and their favorite food.

“In the Mood”: Dec. 5-14. A nostalgic evening of merriment and song in the 1940s style harkening to a time when the world was at war but spirits were high.

“The Miracle Worker”: February through March. A dramatization focuses on the relationship between blind and mute Helen Keller and her tutor Annie Sullivan. Sign language interpreters will be on stage.

“The Dinosaur Musical”: May through June. Get in your way-back machine to the Cretaceous Period when a giant meteor collides with Earth and the dinosaurs become bipartisan, with the carnivores and herbivores agreeing to live together.
