'Zombie Prom,' Gas Prices, George Washington Exhibit: Things to Know in Temecula This Week

Here are five things to know the week of Jan. 27, 2014 in Temecula, Calif.

1. Today is designated by the United Nations as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. It is the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in 1945 and honors the victims of the Nazi era.

2. It's a good time to fill 'er up. The streak of dropping prices for a gallon of self- serve regular gasoline in the Inland Empire was extended today to a 20th day, but barely, as it decreased one-tenth of a cent to $3.596. The average price in Riverside and San Bernardino counties has dropped 8.8 cents over the past 20 days, including six-tenths of a cent on Sunday, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service. The average price is 2.6 cents less than one week ago, 3 cents lower than one month ago and 12.2 cents below what it was one year ago.

3. Prom season is staring early at Temecula Valley High School. “Zombie Prom,” a production of Temecula Valley High School Dramatics, opens Thursday, Jan. 30 in the school’s performing arts center, 31555 Rancho Vista Road, Temecula. The Off-Broadway musical is billed as “An Alarming Anecdote of Atomic Adolescent Angst.” Shows will be held at 7 p.m. on Jan. 30, Jan. 31 and Feb. 1, and again on Feb. 7 and Feb. 8. There is also a matinee performance at 2 p.m. on Feb. 8. To purchase tickets, call 951-695-7300 or send an email to dheid1@tvusd.k12.ca.us.

4. Don’t miss “The Many Faces of George Washington,” a national traveling exhibition that examines the multi-dimensional, real-life man behind the myth, on display at the Temecula Valley Museum through mid-February. Click here for more information.

5. Attention husbands, boyfriends and significant others: Valentine’s Day is just three weeks away. Now is a good time to think about gifts and make restaurant reservations. Don’t say you weren’t told!
