Miami Theater Center presents the comical children’s performance of "The Love of Three Oranges." Prince Tartaglia has been sick for 10 years, and after nothing makes him feel better, two strange doctors reveal a possible cure: laughter. The king hires a famous comedian named Truffaldino to perform at the palace, but as soon as the prince laughs, an evil witch curses him, making him wander the world feverishly searching for three mysterious oranges. A good wizard helps Tartaglia overcome several obstacles on his way to finding the oranges, and the prince returns home with much more than fruit. Through March 10. Miami Theater Center, 9806 SW Second Ave., Miami Shores. $20. Details: (305) 751-9550 or firstname.lastname@example.org or www.mtcmiami.org.
