The winter theater season has proven to be vibrant and jam-packed full of variety, just the way we like it. Whether you're looking for a one-man show with a historical twist, or a warm romantic comedy, Bend's local theater scene looks like it should be able to please you in the coming months.

Ten Cent Treasure

After the success of Jay Frank's one-off one-man show earlier this winter, the former local TV news anchor brings his solitary performance back to The Wine Shop & Tasting Bar every Wednesday in February. As a modern storytelling, Ten Cent Treasure reveals three mysteries of the past, which include: a treasure in the U.S. Mint, a disappearance at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, and a kidnapping and murder on the Colorado frontier. Frank, a Presidential Scholar in the Arts and MTV's The Real World alumnus, performs by candlelight, in front of a projected backdrop of historical photographs. Free with a $5 drink minimum. 7pm Wednesday, Feb 9, 16, & 23. The Wine Shop and Tasting Bar, 55 NW Minnesota Ave.

Eat, Drink & Be Deadly

If you're looking to impress your sweetie this Valentine's Day weekend, dinner theater may be a winning option. Buckboard Mysteries takes over Café 3456 for an evening of fine food and interactive entertainment. This Valentine's Day-themed show features Pierre Pinot Noir, Sawyer Sauvignon, Charlotte Chardonnay and more in a "whodunit," which offers bit roles for dinner guests and everyone tries to solve the murder. $49/adult, $45/seniors. 6pm-9pm Saturday, Feb 12. Cafe 3456, 63136 Powell Butte Hwy.

The Rainmaker

2nd Street Theater presents a warm and romantic comedy that celebrates love, resiliency and the magic of belief in something beyond oneself. On the brink of becoming an old maid, Lizzie Curry feels hopeless. Her skills as a homemaker are no match for the fact that she's too plain. Though she secretly harbors feelings for the local sheriff, he won't even take a chance on her. When an intense drought threatens the town, Bill Starbuck, professional rainmaker, enters the lives of Lizzy and her family. The play, directed by Susan Benson, begins on February 18 with an opening night champagne and dessert reception. Shows run Wednesday through Saturday at 8pm, with Sunday matinees at 2pm. $20/adults, $18/students or seniors. Friday, Feb 18 - Sunday, Mar 13. 2nd Street Theater, 220 NE Lafayette Ave.
