5 Things To Do This Weekend in St. Louis 7/21 – 7/23
Happy Friday! It’s time for another fun-filled weekend in St. Louis. If you are still pulling your plans together for the weekend, here are a few suggestions to help.
Art Hill Film Series: Dreamgirls | July 21
A young female singing trio get their big break in the early ‘60’s and face their own struggles along the way. Food trucks and music start at 6 p.m. The film will begin at 9 p.m.
STAGES St. Louis Presents: 9 to 5 The Musical | July 21 – August 20
Based on the seminal 1980 hit movie, this hilarious musical romp explores friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era. It is outrageous, romantic, and even a little bit thought provoking in its heroines’ desire to break the glass ceiling. Chockfull of upbeat and optimistic songs by country superstar Dolly Parton and featuring the toe-tapping title tune, “9 to 5”, three female coworkers concoct a plan to live out their wildest fantasies by giving their sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot of a boss the boot.
The Muny: The Unsinkable Molly Brown | July 21 – 27
Hannibal Missouri’s own brash and beguiling Molly Brown shines in this exhilarating adaptation of Meredith Willson’s 1960 musical. Her rags-to-riches story sparkles with a new book by Dick Scanlan (Thoroughly Modern Millie), and new songs from the Meredith Willson songbook. The tempestuous can’t-live-with-him/can’t-live-without-him love story returns to the stage with more fun and flair than ever.
A Very Potter Party | July 22
Accio! Summoning all muggles awaiting their Hogwarts letter to The Crown Room for a very magical evening! This weekend at Ballpark Village’s Crown Room, young adults who are 21 or older can toast to their love of all things Potter. The night’s signature drinks include happy hour-priced butter beers, Felix Felicis and Unicorn Blood cocktails, and an array of themed shots. Attendees are also encouraged to dress as their favorite Potter Universe characters, enter the Tri-Wizard Tournament giveaway, and drop a raffle ticket in the Goblet of Fire for a chance to win Harry Potter items.
