Fall, fall, fall. Pumpkin spice everything, cozy sweaters and colorful leaves, la-dee-da. We’re at the tricky part of the month with event planning turning its focus entirely to Halloween. Here are a few non-seasonal, non-costumed events for the upcoming week:
Back to the Future: Part II
Unseen hosts “Back to the Future: Part II” at 6:45 p.m. Wednesday at the Fargo Theatre.
Those familiar with the series will recognize the Oct. 21, 2015 reference from the 1985 film. The event is open to the public, and tickets can be bought at the Theatre box office the day of. All proceeds go to the work of Unseen.
Opening Reception, Laura Youngbird’s “Common Thread”
At 7 p.m. Thursday, Laura Youngbird’s “Common Thread” collection will open at the Plains Art Museum.
The artist, educator and director of the museum’s Creativity Among Native American Artist program will show a series of portraits and prints relating to both her personal life and larger themes.
Youngbird’s series will be housed in the Excel Energy gallery, and the event is free and open to the public. The Community Collections exhibit from North of Normal will also open Thursday night, and displays the wide variety of objects locals collect.
Cabaret: The Musical
Music Theatre Fargo-Moorhead presents an adaptation of Christopher Isherwood’s “Goodbye to Berlin” in “Cabaret: The Musical.”
The show runs from now until Sunday at The Stage at Island Park, with show times starting at 7:30 p.m., besides the exception of Sunday’s 2 p.m. performance.
“Cabaret” focuses on post WWI Berlin during the rise of Nazi Germany. Its extravagant score and self-indulgent characters tell the age-old tale of love and loss.
