Dancing, drama and big-screen delights

 

It feels as if things are slowing a bit, as if we’re holding our collective breath and waiting for Memorial Day – and summer – to arrive.

So as we get about having fun on what is unofficially the last weekend of spring, never fear. There’s still plenty to do.

For sheer color, pageantry and energy, you can’t beat a powwow. At Spokane Falls Community College this weekend, the Red Nations Student Association will host dancers from around the region for a weekend of grand entries, fancydancing, traditional dancing and more.

Area stages are keeping things hopping, too. While Spokane Civic Theatre has sold out the opening weekend of “Grease,” theater options abound. “Dixie Swim Club,” at Civic’s Firth J. Chew Studio Theatre, continues through June 2. Lake City Playhouse, in preparation for a national competition, is opening its final rehearsal of “K2” to the public, on Sunday. “Seeds of Change” continues at Interplayers, and Ignite! Community Theatre is hosting a playwrights showcase.

And at the movie theaters, well, there’s this new “Star Trek” movie that opened Thursday, while the Magic Lantern is opening “The Silence” and “Black Rock.”

So now you know. Go forth and have fun.
