Weekend Arts Around Town (May 6 – 8)

Don’t know what to do this weekend? If you’re not heading to The Centre this weekend for Shen Yun, we’ve got a few ideas:

May 5 – May 8
Ralph + Lina
Kitchener-Waterloo Little Theatre
Ralph + Lina is a rough and tumble romance following the struggles of two Italian lovers in the face of war, immigration and old age.  Produced by Edge of the Woods Theatre, directed by award-winning artist Michele Smith, and with performances by real-life husband and wife, Dan Watson and Christina Serra, this sold-out across Canada performance is packed with honesty, humour, whimsy and charm.  Don’t miss your chance to see it live!
