Weekend! Oct. 20-23

So we think the name kinda narrows down the costume ideas (Makes it easier, though, eh?). No devils allowed. OK, you can dress like a devil. But only if you promise to dance. It is for the kids, after all.
WHO: Charleston Halos
WHERE: Cottage on the Creek
WHEN: 7-11 p.m. Friday

It's a classic tale of alchemy, or was it voodoo? We'll just call it experimentation. Anyway, you know the story. Go see the play already.
WHO: Robert Louis Stevenson, Henry Jekyll and Edward Hyde. Or did you mean the actors? Sorry. The Footlight Players. Happy now?
WHERE: Footlight Players' Theatre
WHEN: Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., multiple other days at 3 and 8 p.m.

How's that? You're not an actor, you're not famous; the only pictures you need to be in are Polaroids. What? They quit making those? Our bad. Ok, you can be in our next screenplay.
WHO: Maggie Borden, Mark Poremba and Laura Rose.
WHERE: South of Broadway studios, 1080 E. Montague Ave.
WHEN: 7:30 p.m. today, Friday and Saturday, 3 p.m. Sunday

They're the same hot topic (immigration), yet so different. Rahmanian's exhibit is graphic novel pieces breaking down what it feels like to be an immigrant; Softic's is works about identity and the worldview of immigrants.
WHO: Hamid Rahmanian and Tanja Softic
WHERE: Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, 161 Calhoun St.
WHEN: Opening 5-7 p.m Friday, lectures at 4 p.m. Friday, 2 p.m. Saturday

All those musicals you watched in school as a kid will come in handy for this. You didn't go to band camp? Too bad — you won't be able to sing along. Though that probably suits the guy in the next seat fine.
WHO: Rogers, Hammerstein and the College of Charleston Opera
WHERE: Simons Center for the Arts, 54 St. Philip St.
WHEN: 8 p.m. Friday

Do you want to sit and roast your marshmallows in peace? Or will you take the haunted boat ride and face the zombie ax murderer chainsaw guy coming through the pristine forest to get you? That sounds like a dare.
WHO: Brave souls, wusses and that zombie ax murderer chainsaw guy
WHERE: Cypress Gardens in Moncks Corner
WHEN: 7:30-10:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday

The flowers come alive in this fantasy dance production. But not in that scary, Little Shop of Horrors way. This is more like a Fantasia, Tinkerbell, dewdrop sort of pastel situation.
WHO: Momix dance company
WHERE: Gaillard Municipal Auditorium
WHEN: 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday

The lineup speaks for itself, and we're not just talking about music. Some of Charleston's top chefs, including Jame Beard winner Sean Brock, are "performing." For all the info, click up there.
WHO: Zac Brown Band, My Morning Jacket, the Blue Dogs, Train, etc.
WHERE: Blackbaud Stadium
WHEN: Friday to Sunday; doors at noon Friday and Sunday, 11 a.m. Saturday

Just about every retailer on Upper King will have something going on tonight. It's art, it's furniture, it's home furnishings, it's jewelry and clothes, it's food and drinks and raffles. And walking. Wear fabulous shoes.
WHO: Upper King Design District
WHERE: Upper King Street, obviously.
WHEN: Starts at 5 p.m. today

Imagine if you took all your old Disney VHS tapes, spliced together all your favorite scenes (by hand, of course, it's VHS), then put the whole thing on ice skates and made it live action. That's essentially what's going on here.
WHO: Timon, Pumbaa, Goofy, Mickey, Mulan, Nemo, 65 characters in all
WHERE: North Charleston Coliseum
WHEN: Thursday through Sunday, lots of shows
