Here are the five things you won’t want to miss in Northfield this weekend, plus a whole bunch of extra ideas.
- The Philadelphia Story | Oct. 7-9, F/Sa 7:30pm, Su 2pm | Northfield Arts Guild Theater
Northfield Arts Guild Theater On the eve of heiress Tracy Lord’s second marriage, a steady stream of visitors, including her ex-husband and the paparazzi, create a most unwelcome guest list. With manners running high, and expectations low, the big question is whether Tracy will make it to the altar at all. In our era of tabloid journalism and growing class-conscious
ness, Philip Barry’s classic romantic comedy is as potent and incisive as ever. The Philadelphia Story is a fascinating peek into the mixed-up lives of the rich and famous who seemingly “have it all.” Tickets: $17 adults, $12 seniors/student s, available at www.northfieldartsguild.org, 507/645-8877 or at the Northfield Arts Guild office.
- Cemetery Stories | October 8, 4:20-8pm | Northfield Cemetery
This historic tour features actors portraying past notable Northfield citizens at their grave sites. This family friendly event is full of mysterious stories. Twenty-minute tours. Cost is $4/adults, $2/child (ages 6-13), $3 NHS Members. More info, or sign up at www.northfieldhistory.org or 507-645-9268.
Acclaimed singer/songwriter Miss Becky Kapell comes back to Northfield in support of her 2012 debut solo release, “For Now.” Her country-twinged songs are sometimes plaintive and spare, sometimes humorous and lively and capture the frustration and heartache of unrealized dreams. As a special treat she’ll be joined by pedal steel guitarist extraordinaire Randy Broughten (the Gear Daddies, Trailer Trash, The Cactus Blossoms). More at www.missbeckykapell.com.
Stop by to taste and talk beer. Some of the guests include Fulton Brewery, Fair State Brewing Cooperative and Keepsake Cidery. This is a free, 21+ event.
- Todd Thompson Band | October 9, 4pm – 6pm | The Contented Cow
An acoustic five-piece Americana band playing blues, bluegrass, cajun, pop, country and western music. From originals to Morrison, Scruggs to Marley, Merle to Elvis, TTB plays a wide variety. Hot banjo, soulful vocals, tasty guitar, romantic bowed bass, funky mandolin and bluesy harmonica make up a unique, toe-tapping sound. You will marvel at the instrumentalist, sing along and be amused with the band’s originality and light-heartedness.
