Thursday: Theatre NDSU’s “Lysistrata”

The theater department’s rousing spring musical is a piñata of colors and sounds, packed to the gills with provocative musings and movement. This modern update of a Greek comedy features 33 cast members stuck in a sex strike during wartime.

Tickets to the show are free for NDSU students and can be claimed at Reineke 107. The onstage energy begins at 7:30 p.m. in Askanase Auditorium. 

Friday: Theatre B’s “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” 

Theatre B’s 12th season is dwindling away with “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike,” a farce looking at family tension and sibling rivalries. The little downtown theater company is already cruising toward its 13th season, which includes “Equivocation,” part of WinterArts’ ShakespeareFest in February 2016.

Tickets to “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” are $10 for students and are available by phone at 701-729-8880. Theatre B is at 716 Main Ave. The play begins at 7:30 p.m.

Saturday: Fargo Zombie Pub Crawl 

The undead will walk downtown Fargo this weekend as the eighth annual Fargo Zombie Pub Crawl comes to life at 3 p.m. Saturday in Island Park for costume preparation.

From there, the crawl commences at 4 p.m. at Duffy’s Tavern, moving downtown as the night grows older.

Some tips from the event’s organizers include eating and drinking water before the crawl, carrying a handful of $1 bills for bar staff tips and having your ID ready. The event is 21+.

Crawl organizers also warn against wearing blood, carrying any kind of weapon and advise respecting those not participating in the crawl.

“The organizers of the crawl are volunteer only and are not responsible for your behavior and actions,” the event’s Facebook page said.

Sunday: Walk the Red River 

Lace up your hiking boots and take a walk along the Red River, as now’s the time to do it.

At historically low levels for this time of year, the riverside is about as accessible as it can get. See the green shoots and blooms of riparian plant life, and explore the twists and turns of North Dakota and Minnesota’s watery boundary.

Leave your swimsuit at home, though. The Red River is not a stream to swim in.
