44 Things To Do This Weekend (Weather Permitting)

Really hoping the snow doesn't cancel the Peeps diorama contest.

  • The Sound of Music @ Academy of Music Our resident theater critic David Fox found this production of the very popular musical surprising and entertaining: “In short, this is The Sound of Music for the whole family: The kids will eat it up — and adults just might find something unexpected in it.” Read his review. Runs through Sunday.
  • Mike Pays Heats @ Everybody Hits These Drexel kids released Tape 1 Play in January, and it hits me in a weird way: a little Wolf Parade, some Adam Arcuragi, kinda folky, kinda punky. Also on the bill: The Obsessives, Semiotics, Broken Beak.
  • Among the Unburied @ Haverford College Three artists “invite us consider a world of ghosts as firmly planted in the complex geopolitics and cultural schisms of Colombia, the Pacific Northwest, and Korea.” This is the opening reception/gallery talk; the exhibition in the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery runs through April 29.
  • Tangle Movement Arts @ Neighborhood House “RetroAct” collects and reimagines pieces from the all-woman aerial dance troupe’s first five years of performances. Expect campy comedy and seriously dazzling trapeze work. Through Saturday.
  • Prisoner’s Song @ Rotunda Music/visual art performance featuring shadow puppets, projections, sound collage and more by Erik Ruin and Gelsey Bell.
  • Get Pegged @ FringeArts Cabaret starring Heath Allen, Chris Davis, Messapotamia Lefae and more. Hosted by John Jarboe.
  • Tortoise @ Underground Arts Millions now living will never rock.
