Take an afternoon drive and discover the beautiful grounds of Moontree Studios just outside of Plymouth, Indiana. There you will see the artwork of Deana Gottschalk, a freelance magazine cartoonist whose work was first published in First for Women magazine in 1990, and which has since appeared in more than 36 publications. The Purdue University graduate took a continuing education class from nationally recognized cartoonist and gag writer Rex “Baloo” May, with whom she has since worked in partnership along with other gag writers from around the country. The cartoons in this exhibit have crossed many humor desks over the years — and many were rejected (some more than once). But others, the lucky ones, were published in the Wall Street Journal and Medical Economics. 574-935-1712 or www.moonstreestuidios.org

Heathers, The Musical

This high school edition of the greatest teen comedy of all time chronicles the heroine’s rise to the top of the high school food chain, where she hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg High, "The Heathers.” Veronica falls in love with the dangerously handsome new kid, J.D. But when Heather Chandler, the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicized benid. J.D. has other plans for that bullet. Are you in, or are you out? Runs today and Oct. 27-29. 219-937-8780 or www.towletheater.org
