Dissatisfied with what it perceives as "a scarcity of good community theater" in southern Orange County, a new troupe calling itself the Monday Night Alternative will launch a monthly series of free, radio-style theater readings next week in San Juan Capistrano. "There's just not enough theater around here," said co-founder B.J. Scott, who will stage the first reading on Monday: Paul Zindel's "The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds." "So we're going to try to do something about that."

Newspaper clips reporting on San Clemente Community Theatre's first production in 1966 hang on the auditorium wall of the theater's Cabrillo Playhouse--not, as you might expect, in the lobby. When you're a community theater and you're 30 years old, you place your press clippings wherever you please. Three decades later, the Cabrillo is revisiting that first production--John Van Druten's comedy "Bell, Book and Candle"--and it's a reasonably happy birthday party.

Santa Monica designer Brian Alfred Murphy had always dreamed of lighting an entire house with candles. When he met poet Cynthia Walker and screenwriter David Sheffield ("Coming to America" and "Boomerang") three years ago, he found clients willing to indulge his fantasy. Now, though their remodeled 1937 ranch house in the Hollywood Hills is fully wired, Walker and Sheffield frequently choose to bask in the light of more than 100 candles.

Rickey Samuel Ross pleaded not guilty Friday to three counts of first-degree murder in the killings of three South Los Angeles prostitutes. The veteran sheriff's deputy could receive the death penalty if convicted. Flanked by two sheriff's deputies, Ross, 40, stood somberly as he entered his plea before Los Angeles Municipal Judge David S. Milton. Afterward, Ross was taken back to an isolated cell in the County Jail, where he is being held without bail.

They call it Shakespeare by the Sea. And that is no lie. The sound of the breakers and the smell of the salt air play a starring role in the production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" currently being staged in Bluff Park at Salt Creek Beach by the South Orange County Community Theatre. However, with all due respect to the amateur zest of the performers in the human cast, this alfresco midsummer production might be more accurately called Kindergarten Shakespeare by the Sea.
