If there’s one thing Jump-Start Performance Company knows how to do, it’s organize the kind of evening you won’t experience anywhere else. For the grassroots theater troupe’s 25th birthday, a slew of conceptual drama queens will participate in a non-stop, three-hour celebration of the absurd. With live music, dancing, fire-eating, comedy, spoken word, video presentations, and theatrical antics of all flavors, boredom will not be an option. Confirmed talents include Azul Barrientos, the Guadalupe Dance Company, Powerhouse Divas and One Divo, the Mountain Lion Dance Company, Urban-15, Doyle Avant, Mocha Dior, and Stars and Garters Burlesque. If all this sounds a bit mentally exhausting, remember, you don’t have to stay for the entire show. Tasty bites will be provided by Ácenar. $5 suggested donation, more happily accepted, doors at 6:30pm, show at 7pm, The Sterling Houston Theater, 108 Blue Star, (210) 227-5867, jump-start.org.
