ARLnow Weekend Discussion

Puppy (flickr pool photo by Chaita_1)It’s Friday, which means tomorrow is the Village at Shirlington’s annual Wags N’ Whiskers.

This annual pet shopping expo has more than 60 exhibitions, where shoppers can buy treats, food and pet goods. Pets can also get their pictures taken for $5, so make sure they look their best.

The event will also have live music and kids activities. Pets are welcome to attend.

Campbell Avenue and S. Randolph Street will be closed from 5:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. for the festival. Campbell Avenue will be closed from S. Quincy Street to the parking garage in front of the Harris Teeter (4250 Campbell Avenue). S. Randolph Street will be closed from Arlington Mill Drive to the alley south of Campbell Avenue.

If four-legged friends are not for you, the Gulf Branch Nature Center and Park (3608 N. Military Road) is holding a bat festival from 6:30-9:30 p.m. on Saturday.

There will be habitat walks, games, crafts and a chance to explore the nature center’s bat cave.

The event will also have talks led by Leslie Sturges, who works at a campaign helping to protect and conserve bats. Each talk is tailored for a specific audience, with two 30-minute kids talks and two 45-minute talks for adults and older children. The event costs $8, and there is currently a waitlist for the event.

Feel free to talk about Wags N’ Whiskers, bats or any other local topic.

Signature Theatre just released single tickets for all 33rd season productions, which highlights the organization’s long-time relationship with legendary composer Stephen Sondheim. Beginning with the musical adaptation of The Color Purple and irreverent No Place to Go, the season continues with three Sondheim musicals, the DC premieres of Off-Broadway hit Which Way to the Stage and Pulitzer Prize finalist Selling Kabul, the Tony Award®-winning rock musical Passing Strange, and return of Signature’s cabaret series honoring legendary artists.

“Last November, the world lost an icon. The death of Stephen Sondheim was a blow to everyone in the theater community. Signature Theatre would not be the same without Sondheim — he IS Signature’s ‘signature.’ This season, we are honoring the legend with productions of Into the Woods, Pacific Overtures and Sweeney Todd dedicated to his memory. These shows represent the diversity and range of Sondheim,” said Signature’s Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner about the new season.
