Weekend Arts Around Town (April 17-19)

Don’t know what to do this weekend? If you’re not heading to The Centre for Classic Albums Live: The Eages’ Hotel California, we’ve got a few ideas:

April 17-18
HAMLET♀‏
Kitchener-Waterloo Little Theatre
Hamlet is Shakespeare’s tale of suicide, incest, murder, guilt, grief, mortality and unrequited love. Women have played the title role before, but never have they played Hamlet as a young woman. Experience a familiar story in a brand new light. The show examines gender issues in both a historical and modern context, as the plot remains unchanged, but the time period of the play is modernized. It’s Hamlet, reversed.

Friday, April 17 @ 7PM
TD KITCHENER BLUES FESTIVAL LAUNCH CONCERT
Maxwell’s Concert and Events
The TD Kitchener Blues Festival Launch Concert will feature performances by the Legendary Downchild Blues Band (pictured above) with Johanna Pavia and SoulDrive, as well as announcing the line-up of this summer’s festival. Be there!
Saturday, April 18 @ 4PM

PAINTING THE BIRCH TREE – TEA PARTY
The Art Warehouse
Join them in their group painting tea parties to draw out that inner creative spirit in you. Enjoy the friendly atmosphere with a wide selection of tea and home-made cookies on the side. No experience necessary – the price includes all material and art supplies.

Sunday, April 19 @ 3PM
FOR TWO TO PLAY
The Registry Theatre
The seventeenth-century harpsichord maker Jean Denis called the harpsichord “the most perfect instrument of all instruments”.  How does one improve upon perfection?  By bringing two harpsichords together, of course!  Guest harpsichordist Cynthia Hiebert joins Borys Medicky in a concert of solos, duos and concerti for two harpsichords by J.S. Bach, François Couperin, Jean-Philippe Rameau, Antonio Soler, and Luigi Boccherini.
