It’s a weekend of last chances and indoor fun in Racine County. There’s live theater, art, basketball action and something old. Real Racine has you covered.

Last call. The exhibition, “(in) Organic,” concludes its run this Sunday at the Racine Art Museum. 441 Main St. The artists have used artificial materials, like polymer and acrylic yarn, or organic materials, like handmade paper and ceramics. The exhibit includes what RAM calls “extraordinary representatives of familiar forms.” Weekend hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday; 12 to 5 p.m. Sunday. Details at www.ramart.org

Don’t miss it! It’s the final weekend for “One Slight Hitch,” a wedding comedy farce at the Racine Theatre Guild, 2519 Northwestern Ave. It’s a story with a wacky family and equally wacky guests.
