We know, we know: we’ve got some serious bonfiring to do this weekend, along with all of the raucous revelry that a bonfire requires. But when you’re not celebrating around Cannon Green this weekend, there are a host of exciting arts events in store. And hey, let’s be real: do any of your professors actually expect you to do legitimate work the weekend before Thanksgiving? (Note: lots of arts events are actually starting at 8:30pm on Saturday night instead of at 8pm to reflect the night’s festivities. Be sure to check online for updates or call ahead!)
First step: check out last week’s Arts Roundup for some great two-weekend events, including theater productions from Theatre Intime the Lewis Center for the Arts. Next, check out this weekend’s newest offerings below:
- Tickets are going like wildfire (or like bonfire, ammirite?) the Princeton Triangle Club‘s newest show, Tree’s Company: Forest’s a Crowd!, which runs this Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 8:30pm, and Sunday at 2pm. It’s in the Matthews Theater at McCarter (the big one at the top of the hill), and tickets sell out fast, so get on it! Click here for more. They sell out of tickets at the Frist Box office extremely fast–as of this afternoon, they didn’t have any more for Friday night’s show–so your best bet is buying tickets directly from McCarter’s box office. You can purchase them in person during business hours, or order them via phone at 609-258-2787; couldn’t be easier.
- Princeton South Asian Theatrics always presents a hilarious night of theater, and this year’s original offering, The Masala Chai Candidate, is sure to be no different! Runs Thursday at 8pm and Saturday at 9pm in the Frist Film and Performance Theater: tickets are $7 for students, events eligible. Click here for more.
- Now in its third year, the Princeton Opera Company presents its first full-scale opera (they’ve previously produced some terrific concerts of arias and operatic scenes), Meanwhile, Back at Cinderella’s. With a stacked cast of talented performers, it’s sure to be an entertaining–and beautifully sung–take on the classic fairy tale. November 15th at 8pm, Nov. 16th at 8 pm, Nov. 17th at 2 pm in Whitman Class of 1970 Theater. Click here for more.
