Among the kids dressed as everything from cats and angels to Buzz Lightyear and Rapunzel at Mariners Elementary School Thursday night, zombies lurked, waiting to show themselves. When the sun finally set and the moon shined brightly in the sky, the zombies made their move and made it a thriller, thriller night.

Vanguard University offers a dynamic, passionate and visceral production of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet.

Noaki Schwartz "Oriundi" revolves around the ghosts of a passionate love story between two Italians who emigrate to Brazil. Together, they pour their energy into opening a pasta factory, which -- guided by their love -- is at first enormously successful.

Marisa O'Neil Forget the bikini. It's Easter. Somewhere along the way, the Christian holiday became associated with jellybeans and chocolate bunnies. And chocolatier Bodega, which has its flagship store at South Coast Plaza and its factory in Costa Mesa, has some of the richest, darkest, most decadent bunnies in town. It's almost too decadent for some, at least temporarily. "Lots of people gave up chocolate for Lent," said employee Darla Sink as she tempted passers-by with free samples in front of the store.

As expected, the Virgin Megastore at Triangle Square was no longer in business Thursday. Cardboard boxes, visible through locked glass doors, were stacked inside the store. A note was posted on the shop's entrances to inform customers that it was no longer a place to buy entertainment. The Virgin Entertainment Group announced in June that the store would close Thursday. The initial announcement was that the store was approaching the end of its lease at Triangle Square.
