This weekend in Racine County you can take in a lively show, attend an outdoor party, hear some music or bowl for a cause. Real Racine has some great suggestions.
Song and dance. The Penguin Players are back with a new show, “Penguin Bound.” The cabaret-style performance has it all – singing, dancing and comedy performed by local talent. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Eagles Club Ballroom, 319 Hamilton St., Racine. Admission is $9 at the door. If you can’t make it this weekend, the Penguins will be back Nov. 11-13.
Make it First. Downtown Racine is the place to be for First Friday from 4 to 9 p.m. Friday. About 50 local retailers, galleries, restaurants and nightspots will be open with all kinds of specials. It’s also a chance to enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride through the Downtown area. The Racine Art Museum, 441 Main St., has free admission all day and invites you to create your own holiday ornament from 4 to 8 p.m. First Friday details at www.firstfridaysracine.com
Not just a movie. The Racine Zoo invites you to Zoovie Night at the Lakeview Center, 201 Goold St. (across from the zoo) this Friday. The Zoovie feature is “Ice Age: Collision Course.” Admission is $10 ($5 for Zoo members) and includes a small popcorn and a drink. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; movie starts at 7 p.m. Advance tickets at www.racinezoo.org
Your last chance. Time is running out to see the Racine Theatre Guild’s hilarious comedy, “Kitchen Witches.” This is a tale about two cable TV cooking show hostesses who can’t stand each other – on camera and off.
