5 Things To Do This Weekend: 12/13 – 12/15
Horray for Friday! Here are the five things you don’t want to miss in Memphis this weekend.
Let’s look at Ballet Memphis’ production of “The Nutcracker” by the numbers. There are four shows, four seating options and more than 100 dancers wearing more than 300 costumes.
Take the kids to the Cotton Museum for holiday-themed crafts, cooking demonstrations and a book signing with Laurie Triplette, face painting, balloon animals, singalong with Music for Aardvarks, shopping at the gift shop, and Santa.
Threepenny Theatre wants to keep their 2014 Shakespeare performances pay-what-you-can, so they’re hosting a fundraiser where you can watch the troupe perform scenes from Macbeth, drink Wiseacre and Ghost River beer, and mingle with the actors.
Get an edgy dose of local art, food, drinks and music. Read the full post here.
Don’t miss an interactive music-making performance by <mancontrol>. You’re invited to interact with the performance by using a variety of LED light sources such as flashlights, work lamps, LED hula hoops, and swinging chandeliers. Also enjoy live music, food trucks, horse-pulled carriages ($15 per ride), crafts and activities, gallery tours, storytelling, and a screening of Jim Henson’s “Emmet Otter’s Jug Band Christmas!”
