It’s the weekend before Thanksgiving and the pressure’s on, so expect crowds in local stores as folks finish up their turkey day shopping or get started on their holiday preparations. Remember to shop Edmonds and support your local economy! Plus, good news for those of us feeling water-logged: Less rain and wind — and even some sunbreaks! — are in the forecast.
Some entertainment offerings around town this weekend:
– Take in some local theater and support your local high school and college thespians! The Edmonds-Woodway Players continue their run of “Ivanov,” a classic drama by Anton Checkhov. Performances are at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, with a matinée performance Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Edmonds-Woodway High School theater, 7600 212th St. S.W., Edmonds. And it’s the final two nights of the 1930s comedy, “The Man Who Came to Dinner,” at Edmonds Community College’s Black Box Theatre, at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
– Featured Friday night at the Edmonds Center for the Arts: The Great Big Sea, a group from Newfoundland that merges pop with traditional music of their homeland. Visit ec4arts.org for tickets and more information.
– And starting Friday night through Tuesday, Nov. 24, the Edmonds Theater is showing a limited engagement of The Michael Jackson documentary, “This Is It.” Showtimes are at 7 p.m. Friday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, with an 8 p.m. showing Saturday and a 2:45 matinee Sunday. Rated PG (for some suggestive choreography and scary images). The Edmonds Theater will continue to show the Disney 3-D version of “A Christmas Carol,” starring Jim Carrey, Friday-Tuesday, with 4:45 p.m. matinees Friday and Sunday-Tuesday, and a 6 p.m. showing on Saturday.
