 Since Rodeo tickets are sometimes harder to get than a PlayStation 2, you have to be prepared to alter your plans.

 If you miss out on one of your favorite Rodeo events this weekend, here are some alternative activities for you to enjoy.

 Two actors try to bank on past success with their releases this weekend.

 Anthony Hopkins reprises his role as Dr. Hannibal Lechter in Hannibal, the follow-up to the critically acclaimed film, The Silence of the Lambs.

 Hannibal also stars Julianne Moore and Ennio Coltorti. Rated R.

 Also Jason Biggs, from American Pie, stars in Saving Silverman.

 Also starring in Silverman are Steve Zahn, Jack Black and Amanda Peet. Rated PG-13.

 From concerts to dance performances, there is something of interest for everyone.

 Sesame Street Live: "Letis Be Friends" at Compaq Center. Remaining showtimes, 7:30 tonight, 2 and 5:30 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.

 Synergy at Alley Theatre. Runs though March 4. Call (713) 228-8421 for additional details.
