Our boys were off school last Friday, which meant a long weekend for us. It included lots of family fun, and as we’re getting into the week (and coping with the time change), I’m looking forward to next weekend’s adventures already. So I’m scanning events on ColumbusMakesArt.com and here’s what I found:
- Short North Stage opens a production of the Sondheim classic Into The Woods on Thursday, March 16.
- Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day this weekend? You’ll find plenty of great live music all over the city, like The Kells and The Drowsy Lads playing at Natalie’s Friday.
- The Columbus Symphony performs Variations on Nutcracker Suite March 17-18.
- And ProMusica continues its Neighborhood Series with a trio of shows this weekend, March 17-19.
- PBJ & Jazz celebrates Women’s History Month with two concerts Saturday morning, March 18.
- The McConnell Arts Center welcomes Thiossane West African Dance Institute to the stage on the 18th.
- That same night Gallery Players opens the musical farce Something Rotten. It runs through Apr. 2.
- The Columbus Gay Men’s Chorus performs Tales of Our Age at the Lincoln Theatre, March 18-19.
- MadLab’s latest show Carl Flunt Would Protect You From Trucks runs through March 18.
- Capriccio Columbus’ choirs perform All Of Us on March 19 at Powell UMC.
- This is your last chance on a few great exhibitions, like Wild Things Are Happening at the Columbus Museum of Art (closing March 19), plus Weiting Wei’s Motherhood and Ardine Nelson’s Transitory States (both closing March 16).
