Attitude Dance Company’s 6th Annual Spring Show
7 p.m. (doors open 6:30) Alumnae Hall, $7 at door
Want to see some dance with attitude? Well, now you can in multiple senses of the word. This performance group, which choreographs pieces ranging from hip-hop to Chinese folk and musical theater, will showcase original dances in their last show of the season.

Musical Forum presents “Into the Woods”
5 p.m. and 10 p.m. Production Workshop, contact Box Office for tickets
Get tickets while you still can because this Sondheim musical akin to fairy tale fan fiction is selling out quickly. As Cinderella puts it, “Opportunity is not a lengthy visitor.”  If you already have plans for the evening, perhaps you can still make it to PW at 10 p.m. Then again, go to the 5 p.m. show if you’d rather get “into the woods and out of the woods and home before dark.” Or stop by Sunday or Monday at 8 p.m. Just don’t wear any golden slippers. The baker and his wife need some in order to have a kid.

Brown University Folk Festival
All day and night, Lincoln Field, free
This annual amalgamation of concerts, workshops and sales synthesizes appearances by Brown and Providence singers, musicians and bands. Catch the Ghanaian drum workshop at 3 p.m. or the contra dance at 9 p.m.

Or start your own nursery rhyme sharing in honor of Mother Goose Day.
