Bully at SteppingStone
SteppingStone Theatre, 55 Victoria Street North, Saint Paul, MN 55104 Saturday, March 8, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. Pay What You Can Performance
This is opening weekend for Bully at SteppingStone Theatre. That means Saturday is the Pay What You Can Performance. There is a suggested minimum of $5.00, but it truly is Pay What You Can. Tickets go on sale an hour before the performance and are sold on a first come basis. I don’t know how all performances go, but we arrived about 15 minutes early for Black Snowman and had no trouble finding a seat. Many people walked in right before the performance. The theatre recommends getting there an hour early. You may want to balance it to the amount of time your little ones can sit and wait.
This play is particularly exciting because it was created by the youth of SteppingStone Theatre in collaboration with a crew from another youth theatre in England. See what young playwrights can do when they explore a real-world issue.
Family Day: Marvelous Matisse Minneapolis Institute of Art, 2400 3rd Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55404 Sunday, March 9, 2014; 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
I’m excited about this Family Day. We’ve been gearing up this week to see the Matisse Exhibit. You can read how we studied for Matisse here. The MIA has some really fun family activities planned including a French sing along. As always, there will also be art-making opportunities, dance and tours.
Fix-It Clinic Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church, 4150 N Dupont Ave, Minneapolis Saturday, March 8, 2014; Noon to 4:00 p.m.
This weekend we have another chance to gather up our broken stuff and get some expert instruction on how to fix it. I really should take in my sewing machine, but then I would have no excuse for not sewing. You can get more information on Fix-It Clinics here.
I haven’t done the Bird Banding thing yet, nor have I been to Eastman Nature Center. It looks like a really cool place to visit; and it is only about a half-hour out of Minneapolis.
