What in The Hollow Are You Doing This Weekend?
If you didn’t make it to Jesuit last weekend for their theater production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, you’ve still got two more chances to see it before it closes, at 7 p.m. tonight and Saturday. Purchase tickets here or at the door.
Although I’ve seen Legally Blonde more times than I like to admit, and although I’ve been known to bend and snap when the situation warrants it, I have yet to see the musical. I’ve heard it’s even more hilarious than the film, which isn’t hard to imagine because setting just about anything to music increases the comedic value. Hillcrest High School students perform the musical tonight and Saturday at 7 p.m.
Got some Xtremely Nergetic Kidz? Looking for an afternoon of Xtreme Ntertainment? head to NorthPark on Saturday when Debbie Day of Xtreme Kidz Ntertainment (it seriously pains me to spell those words like that!) will present “Poca Poca Ding Dong Wig Wam.” 2 p.m. in the North Court. I have no idea what type of presentation she’ll be putting on, but it sounds like it will be very Ntertaining.
Remember Project Runway Season 5′s breakout star, Korto Momolu? She’ll be here this weekend, hosting the Designers Choice Fashion Preview along with Page Parkes and Remi Ayodele, at the Dallas World Trade Center. The show, 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, will feature collections by local DFW designers and the proceeds will benefit W.T. White High School. Click here for more information and to purchase your ticket.
The Jewish Community Center of Dallas is hosting a fun, family event where you’re actually supposed to attend in your pajamas. Bring your kids and learn about the prayers Jews say upon rising from bed in the morning and before going to sleep each night, and decorate a pillowcase with Shema – the watchword of the Jewish faith. It’s 10:30 a.m., Sunday, at the Mankoff Center for Jewish Learning.
Congregation Shearith Israel will be hosting popular Jewish A Cappella group the Maccabeats live and in concert at 2 p.m. Sunday. Originally formed at Yeshiva University in NYC, they have travelled the world performing and have more than 10 million hits on their YouTube channel. Last year’s concert sold out early, and they only have a few tickets left, so purchase your tickets here while you still can.
Royal Lane Baptist Church is hosting an ecumenical Thanksgiving service at 5 p.m. Sunday. Participating churches include Royal Lane Baptist Church, Northaven UMC, Central Congregational Church and St. Luke’s Episcopal Church. Singers and ministers from each church will be included in the service, and they will be collecting canned goods for North Dallas Shared Ministries.
