Nothing and no one is safe from comedic barbs in “Lagunatics,” a tribute to Laguna Beach through a musical parody revue that opens for four weekends beginning Friday, Oct. 7.Yuge!” features great Broadway tunes and pop songs with lyrics that celebrate and skewer the town and its lifestyle.

Directed by Bree Burgess Rosen and choreographed by Paul Nygro, the cast will go after city government, pot dispensaries, Pokémon, tourists, public art, water conservation … and, of course, goats. This year’s script is written by Rosen, Chris Quilter, Bridget English, Paul Nygro, and Rebecca Lyles. Music direction is by Roxanna Ward and costumes by Brigitte Harper.

“Lagunatics” appears in the 86-seat No Square Theatre in Legion Hall, 384 Legion St. Because of the small venue, the cast is smaller than in any year past, but will include a changing line-up of narrators through the run of weekend performances through Oct. 30.
