Steve Martin's wild and crazy satirical voice will be heard loud and clear when Center Repertory opens his production of "The Underpants" on Oct. 23, with preview performances on Oct. 19-21, at the Lesher Center for the Arts. From Martin's active imagination comes the story of Louise and Theo, whose conservative existence comes to a halt when Louise has a slight wardrobe malfunction.

Directed by Michael Butler, the wacked-out comedy features Evan Boomer, Cassidy Brown, Ben Johnson, Jamie Jones, Lyndsy Kail and Keith Pinto. For tickets to the show, which runs through Nov. 17, call 925-943-SHOW or go to www.lesherartscenter.org.
