What to do in Connecticut This Weekend! Movies, lights Holiday drives for people and pets and more ways to get festive!
Do you miss Broadway? Musicals? Well Netflix’s The Prom may do the trick for you! It’s an all star cast that started filming in 2019 – got suspended due to covid and finished this summer. The cast is incredible:
It is however not getting great reviews, it’s billed as a musical comedy and is based on the 2018 Broadway musical of the same name. The message is important and celebrates diversity, when failed Broadway stars find themselves in a small town in Indiana to help a young woman attend prom with her girlfriend who was banned by the schools PTA.
This weekend you’ll find many toy drives for children across the state and while they may look a little different, I’ve posted links to many drives HERE.
One drive has gone virtual and is put on by Teachers across the State with the Connecticut Education Association and their charitable arm, the Connecticut Education Foundation. If you want to donate right from your home for gift cards for kids in need you can visit my Better Weekend Blog! They usually help 1,000 children identified by teachers and parents as the most in need so any help is greatly appreciated! DONATE HERE
FREE, CONNetic Dance: Nutcracker Suite and Spicy December 11, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm– you do need to register for this virtual event at www.thewadsworth.org
December wouldn’t be the same without this unique and totally entertaining twist on the classical ballet. After the performance, don your ugly holiday sweater and have a cocktail in hand to join the cast and crew for a virtual reception. Choreographed and directed by Carolyn Paine. Available to watch until December 31, 2020.
And since Friday 12.11.20 is PJ Day in honor of Connecticut Children’s Medical Center – I thought we’d continue the theme at the Hebron Fairgrounds this weekend for the Deck the Jeeps and Trucks Holiday Light Drive-Through The Hebron Lions along with the Nutmeg Jeepers and CT Jeep Beach Cruises groups are working together to create a unique way to showcase lights with over 25 vehicles on display. All proceeds will be used for the purchase of gifts off the snowflake wish list for CT Children's Medical Center since they are unable to collect toys this year.
