Do you have a hard time finding things to do at the beginning of the week?

Look no further: This Monday through Wednesday, you can treat yourself to a variety of performances from entertainers of all skill levels.

Monday: “Ensemble Mélange

When it comes to experience, this group has put in their time.

How often do we get to see our faculty perform? For those of us who have yet to see such seasoned musicians, this could be the perfect opportunity to appreciate their talents.

The group consists of Cecilia Kang playing clarinet, Tyler Wottrich on piano, Dinia Neglia-Khachtryan playing violin and guest performer William Comita on cello.

The event will be held at 7:30 p.m. in Beckwith Recital Hall in the Music Education Building.

Admission is completely free and open to the public. In other words, it is affordable and on campus. For college students, this alone is usually enough incentive to attend.

Tuesday: “Open Mic Comedy” at Red Raven Espresso Parlor

Do you think you’re funny? If so, you can grab a friend for moral support and try your hand at stand-up comedy at Red Raven Espresso Parlor.

If not, you and your friends can simply attend as audience members. Obviously, comedians of all levels of experience are welcome, both professional and amateur. Plus, it’s totally free.

Anyone interested in being a comedian for the night can sign up starting at 8:30 p.m. For those of us who are only after a little laughter, the show starts at 9 p.m. and ends at 11 p.m.

The Red Raven is located at 916 Main Ave. in downtown Fargo.

This Wednesday, you can join MSUM’s theater department as its student performers gain experience on the stage.

In this provocative new adaptation of the Shakespearean play, Romeo struggles with his identity. Born into a girl’s body, he is rejected by his own family. Romeo then tries to understand true love when he finds it in Juliet.
