They say the only thing better than a long weekend is a short week. Hard to believe another weekend is already upon us, but I’m certainly not going to argue it! Take a look at some of the fun events that are just around the corner.
Village Theatre Level 1 Graduate Show and Armando! Friday, May 31, 8:30pm, $10. If you’ve been on the fence about signing up for one of the Village Theatre’s improv classes, this is a great way to see the program in action. After watching the students perform, you can stay and watch the main cast perform in the Armando show – and sign up for the July Level 1 improv class if you’ve got the guts to do it!
