LOCAL DIVA: Sisuandra Lewis, from Polk County, is hoping not to be eliminated tonight on <i>The Voice</i>.

Tampa Bay pet owners were shocked to learn the news of an arson that that killed three cats early Saturday at the offices of the Animal Coalition of Tampa Bay, forcing the office to close temporarily. Grimaldi’s Pizzeria is helping out by donating 50 percent of Tuesday’s proceeds the non-profit vet's rebuilding fund. Those interested in chipping in and enjoying pizza and other Italian grub can visit the charity Yappy Hour till 9 p.m.

Adapted from the hit '90s film, Ghost, the touring Broadway production Ghost the Musical haunts the Straz's Morsani Hall tonight. The story follows Sam and Molly, a young couple whose connection takes a shocking turn after Sam’s untimely death. The musical features an original pop score from multiple Grammy Award-winners Dave Stewart, one half of the ’80s pop duo the Eurythmics, and Glen Ballard, co-writer with Alanis Morissette on Jagged Little Pill. Recommended for ages 13 and older; contains mild violence, mature themes and dialogue that are true to the story and plot. $46.50-$81.50. April 22-24 and 27, 7:30 p.m. April 25-26 8 p.m. April 26-27, 2 p.m. Straz Center for the Performing Arts, 1010 N. MacInnes Place, Tampa. 813-229-7827. strazcenter.org.

Wanna do something less expensive and more low key? Join the Studio@620 for an exhibition of art by locals John Harte and Cora Marshall, who were selected to exhibit their work at the studio after their participation in The studio’s “Members Only Art Show” in 2013. Opening reception this evening 6-9 p.m. Works will be up through April 27. 

Later tonight, two contestants will be voted off the NBC's The Voiceand hopefully neither will be two Central Florida pride-bearers: Sisaundra Lewis from Polk County and Sarasota native Josh Kaufman. Click here for info on how to vote.
