The holidays draw a little closer as November arrives. Consider these fun outings for your evenings and weekends!
Arizona Theatre Company: The River Bride
Arizona Theatre Company presents a play set in a fishing village along the Amazon where two sisters struggle to find their happily-ever-after — WINNER OF THE 2013 NATIONAL LATINO PLAYWRITING AWARD. Staged at the Temple of Music and Art.
Between Folds: Classical Japanese Origami
Cleverly transforming a flat square of paper into three-dimensional sculpture through folding and without the use of scissors or glue is a beloved pastime in Japan among both children and adults, dating from the Edo period (1603-1867). Called origami, paper folding produces creations as wide-ranging as a person’s imagination: animals, from horses to rabbits; sea creatures, from whales to seahorses; insects, from crickets to butterflies; trees and flower blossoms; figures of geisha and samurai; and even action figures, such as cranes with movable wings.
La Cocina: Ms. Lana Rebel & Kevin Michael Mayfield
On most Wednesday evenings, La Cocina at Old Town Artisans hosts live music by Lana and Kevin, whose original songs quietly honor the simple beauty of early American folk, blues, and country. Guitars, sweet harmonies, and the occasional harmonica, fiddle, or singing saw blend together to result in a perfect tranquil soundtrack for a long road trip, or a late-night porch gathering on a quiet summer night.
Autumn Grand American Trap Shoot
The Amateur Trapshooting Association presents the annual Autumn Grand American Preliminary Autumn Grand and the Autumn Grand at the Tucson Trap and Skeet Club (a shotgun ONLY gun range. No pistol or rifle shooting is allowed on premises), home of the USA Shooting Southwest Regional Training Center. The Pre-Autumn Grand will offer even more targets to get you warmed up for the big event. The weather in Tucson in early November is usually spectacular. This is an opportunity to shoot over one of the premier clubs in North America. There will be great prizes, All-American points and great comradeship.
