Arts, culture and entertainment for the week of October 31st to November 6th

LANSING, Michigan – Good morning mid Michigan!

Are you ready to have some fun this week?

A variety of arts, culture, and entertainment events take place throughout Mid-Michigan.

Monday night is Halloween, a perfect time to celebrate some spooky fun with all of us.

Trick or treats are held on Mondays from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in most Mid-Michigan cities.

These include Jackson, Lansing, Bath, Delta Township, Delhi Township, DeWitt, East Lansing, Eaton Rapids, Meridian Township and St. Johns.

Next Friday is Shrek the Musical opening night at the Portland Community Theater.

Set in a mythical Once Upon a Kind Land, Shrek the Musical is the story of a giant green ogre who, after being taunted and feared by all who crosses his path his entire life, retreats to an ugly green swamp, to exist happily isolation.

It’s a hilarious musical about curses being reversed, monsters getting the girl, donkeys and dragons finding love, and princesses of all shapes and sizes.

If you’re around Owosso on Friday, check out In Harmony – A Musical Variety Show at the Lebowsky Center.

The evening is a kick-off concert for the Raise Up Shiawassee fundraiser, to which the public is invited.

On Saturday night, the Lansing Symphony Orchestra highlights some of the many avenues and inspirations explored by music in the early 20th century.

The program includes everything from Prelude to The Afternoon of Fuan by Claude Debussy to Igor Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite.

The concert starts at 7:30 p.m

This weekend marks a unique partnership between MSU’s Wharton Center and the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams, or FRIB for short.

Called Of Equal Place: Isotopes in Motion, it takes a look at the research at FRIB while exploring themes that resonate in both nuclear physics and dance.

The performance also highlights the contributions of youth, women and people of color in science through a diverse cast of ages, ethnicities and cultural backgrounds.

The show starts at 1 p.m. on Sunday.

Also at the Wharton Center, Mummenschanz, the masked theater company, returns to celebrate their 50th anniversary, delighting audiences of all ages in theaters around the world. The legendary visual theater company invites audiences on a journey through their history and into their future.

The production will also feature sketches with surprising new forms and characters that capture the distinctive Mummers’ spirit of endless possibility and delight.
