Out and About: Things to see and places to be this weekend

|

Oh what a night it will be when Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons come to the Palace Theatre in Stamford on Friday. The original “Jersey Boys,” will be in town to raise funds for the Greenwich nonprofit, Dana’s Angels Research Trust, and to entertain what organizers hope will be a packed house.

It is just the start of a big weekend, and week, of music in Fairfield County. The Memorials will be performing at the Heirloom Arts Theatre in Danbury tonight, while Brian LaBlanc will channel Neil Diamond for a performance in Ridgefield Friday night. On Sunday, the Palace in Stamford will again open its doors, this time for the fans of David Crosby and Graham Nash. If you are a fan of Civil War music, make a trip to Danbury on Sunday. On Monday, the Dawes will perform at Toad’s Place. Later in the week, blues guitarist Roy Rogers will team up with Ray Manzarek, the co-founder and keyboardist of The Doors, for a performance at the Ridgefield Playhouse.

If you are a fan of choral music, the Greenwich Choral Society will be joining with the Westchester Choral Society on Saturday to present “Dvorak: Stabat Mater.” It will feature the talents of the chorus, soloists and an orchestra.

Are you looking for a good movie? The Darien Arts Center will welcome “Madcap Mabel” to its screen and stage for three days this weekend. On Monday, the Avon Theatre is hosting a special evening that includes a screening of “Two Angry Moms.”

If you want to be entertained as a story unfolds on stage, make your way to Curtain Call’s Dressing Room Theatre, where a young couple copes with impending arrival of their first child. In Stratford, the Square One Theatre is presenting Yasmina Reza’s comedy “Art.”

Do you want to laugh? You better line up a ticket for Pauly Shore’s show at Mohegan Sun on Sunday.

Since the forecast is finally for some sunny skies, you may want to check out the Bruce Museum’s two-day Outdoor Crafts Festival this weekend. In addition to a mix of different works for purchase, visitors can enjoy music, crafts and other programs. Another outdoor event worth checking out is “Wings & Wheels 2011: British Invasion!” at Sikorsky Memorial Airport in Stratford.

Finally, if there are still tickets left, Congregation Agudath Sholom in Stamford is hosting a great family show on Saturday when the Maccabeats come to perform.

Enjoy the weekend …. until next time.
