Happy St. Paddy’s weekend y’all. What are your plans? I might make my late grandma’s soda bread which no one but me will eat so I will include the raisins AND the caraway seeds. I might rewatch The Derry Girls and call it a perfect day.
What else are we doing?
Tonight at Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, you can get down with the Thane of Fife and friends at We Happy Few’s production of Macbeth. The Scottish play is a perennial fave with good reason. Witches. Murder. Schemes. What’s not to like? Throw in a pre-show wine tasting at DCanter and you will be ready to take in the regicide. Get your tickets here.
Friday is the final offering in the Hitchcock Doppelganger series at the Hill Center. Wait Until Dark is a super creepy thriller featuring the ever-lovely Audrey Hepburn as a blind woman besieged by a “gang of nasties led by Alan Arkin.” That sentence led me right to IMDB. Tickets are FREE and the film begins at 7 p.m.. Register in advance here.
Saturday, the Capitol Movement Project celebrates 14 years of “building better lives through dance” at the Atlas Performing Arts Center. The performance titled “Dance in the Face of…” features a variety of dance styles and showcases how movement can help over come obstacles. Tickets are $45 and the show begins at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday afternoon, bring the kiddos to the Hill Center for a Family concert and Happy Hour featuring the Bright Siders. Their music helps kids and families have meaningful conversations about emotions. Created by award-winning songwriter Kristin Andreassen and Brooklyn child psychiatrist Dr. Kari Groff. The concert begins at 3 p.m. Tickets are $10 for kids and $5 for grown ups and that includes one drink.
The Capital City Symphony presents Beatrice Chen, 2018 winner of the Johansen International Competition on viola, performing Béla Bartók’s renowned Viola Concerto.
