What to do this week: February 23 – 29


Week-long events:

Event: Shakespeare on the Green presents: Spring Awakening
Time: 8:00 p.m,  Thursday — Sunday, and 2 p.m on Saturday and Sunday
Location: Rites and Reasons Theatre, Churchill House

No, Spring Awakening was not written by William Shakespeare. But SotG still wants to bring us this cool rock musical about adolescence and sex and stuff. Directed by Jenn Maley ’16, this play is likely to be pretty popular, so be sure to check the Facebook page on Tuesday at midnight for tickets.

Event: S&B Presents: Twelfth Night
Time: 8:00 p.m,  Thursday — Sunday, and 2 p.m on Saturday and Sunday
Location: Brown Stuart Theater

This one actually was written by Shakespeare! Re-imagined by Jane Nichols, a renowned clown teacher, the play is set in a 1930’s “Hopper-esque” world, so not just another Twelfth Night. You can get tickets here, and remember that time slots are the same as Spring Awakening‘s if you’re looking to go to both!

Event: PW Presents: Quitters Never Win
Time: 8:00 p.m,  Wednesday, Thursday; and 6 and 10:00 p.m on Friday
Location: PW Upspace

This logically titled play is directed by Spencer Roth-Rose ’17, and based on the event info, it involves cake… Tickets will be released at the door, 30 minutes before the show.
