    OSF PREVIEW EVENT: "A Wrinkle in Time" previews at 8 p.m. in the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's Angus Bowmer Theatre. The play opens at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, April 20, and runs through Nov. 1. Tracy Young directs her adaptation of the book by Madeleine L'Engle. In the play, when quintessential square peg Meg Murry — a middle-school math whiz with glasses and a short temper — and her strangely gifted younger brother set off to find their missing father, they find themselves in a world where being different isn't just annoying — it can cost one's life. With the help of curious, otherworldly beings, Meg must use every power she can muster to put her family back together. Show times, tickets and information available at www.osfashland.org or 541-482-4331.
