Thursday October 31, 2019

Below are five of the best ways to spend this weekend in St. Louis including the Dear Even Hansen at the Fox Theatre, Six Flags Fright Fest and more.

Saint-Saëns’ Organ Symphony | November 1 – 3

After leading a sold-out show with legendary film composer John Williams on November 1, the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and Music Director Stéphane Denève keep the theme of Hollywood going with concerts on November 2-3. Concerts open with an iconic American masterpiece, Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings, which is the central theme of the 1980s war drama Platoon. The SLSO also plays a violin concerto by John Williams and closes the concert with Saint-Saëns’ Symphony No. 3, used in Babe and captures the epic scope of film.

Six Flags Fright Fest | Through November 3

During this most frightening time of year, Six Flags St. Louis is wholesome family fun during the day, but beware at night when there is nowhere to hide as haunted houses and scare zones are all throughout the park.

A Beautiful Game | Through March 1

A Beautiful Game showcases lovely artifacts from the World Chess Hall of Fame collection—chess-inspired beauty products, photographs, posters, and advertisements—and illustrates how the sophistication and brilliance of the game have been celebrated and revered in chess and popular culture. The exhibition also highlights new, interactive artwork by chess champion and author Jennifer Shahade as well as Pinned! fashion designer Audra Noyes.

Pompeii: The Exhibition | Through November 3

It’s the final weekend to see visit Pompeii: The Exhibition at the Saint Louis Science Center.  This exhibit features more than 50 authentic artifacts of the ancient Roman city of Pompeii that was buried by the Mount Vesuvius eruption.  Besides artifacts, the exhibit aims to take guests through a bustling day in the life of ancient Pompeii.

Dear Evan Hansen | October 31 – November 3

The Washington Post and The New York Times rave about this six 2017 Tonys Awards including Best Musical.  The Dear Evan Hansen is a deeply personal and profoundly contemporary musical about life and the way we live it.
