Arts, culture and entertainment report for the week of October 24-30

LANSING, Mich. — Have you ever thought about learning to play the ukulele? Ben Hassenger is known as Michigan’s Ukulele Ambassador, and next Wednesday, for the next five Wednesdays, he will be offering a ukulele class at the Grand Ledge District Library from 6-7 p.m.

Pre-registration is required, but after five weeks you’ll be well on your way to impressing your friends!

This Thursday, Lansing’s Riverwalk Theater continues its latest show, “Fabulation, or The Re-Education of Undine.”

The play focuses on Undine, an ambitious publicist living in Manhattan.

But life is turned upside down for Undine, and it all makes for a great story.

“Fabulations” continues until this Friday.

Next Friday and Saturday the final performances of Steven King’s Misery will take place at the Lebowsky Center in Owosso.

The series is based on the bestselling novel by Stephen King.

Real life gets stranger than fiction when a celebrated romance novelist wakes up at the home of his “number one fan.”

Rescued from a winter car accident, Paul Sheldon finds himself in the secluded home of Annie Wilkes, a seemingly kindly nurse.

This spine-tingling stage adaptation traps you with Paul in a room where he has to trick Annie if he hopes to escape.

There’s costumes, candy and more in Jackson on Saturday afternoon when little ghosts and goblins haunt the Michigan Theater for the Jackson Symphony Orchestra’s Halloween Children’s Concert.

This program features hilariously fun symphonic music perfect for young eyes and ears. The whole family is invited to dress up in their favorite costume to enjoy boo-tiful music!

The concert is an opportunity for you to introduce your children to the wonders of live orchestral music. The show begins at 3 p.m., then a few hours later…a minute before midnight, the cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show takes over the Michigan Theater.

You can join in the fun of singing, screaming and acting as the Rocky Horror Picture Show Shadow Cast comes to life.

The ticket price includes a prop bag. Be prepared to have the time of your life celebrating a true classic!

This is a quick look at the events taking place this week. Whatever you do, I hope you master it.
