This is another event-packed weekend. In addition to all of the live theater featured in my article for last weekend, we have some unique events coming up.

Make sure to check out last weekend’s article, as all of those plays will continue this weekend. Also, a reminder, the outdoor movies featured in Sundance Square and UTA that I posted earlier this summer are also still showing.

This weekend I decided to also feature free concerts and film screenings and even a special treat for all those Monty Python fans. Most of the events I have posted this summer, including those in this article, are family friendly. Warnings are posted when they are adult only.
