Oct. 4 | Top 5 Happenings This October


Mornings are crisp, days are breezy, and “pumpkin spice” anything is available everywhere. Fall is here to stay! Looking at the lineup, there really seems to be something for everyone at the Weinberg Center this October. As promised, we’re here to keep you in-the-know on the top five happenings on our stage this month.

1 | Experience the first pay-what-you-want performance of the season with Girls Guns and Glory

Rising Americana group Girls Guns and Glory is quickly taking the music industry by storm, having already been dubbed a “don’t-miss night of alternative country” by The Washington Post. And getting to experience it all for a pay-what-you-want price? Yes, please. October 6 at 7:30pm

2 | Meet William Shatner face-to-face

In mid-October, Shatner will take the stage in his direct-from-Broadway one-man show exploring his life and career. But here’s what makes his Frederick appearance even better: after the fact, meet-and-greets are available for audience members to purchase and be able to actually meet Captain Kirk in personOctober 12 at 7:30pm

3 | Sweet Plantain infuses classical rhythms with new life

Classical and international music fans, this one’s been picked just for you. Hip hop? Jazz improv? Latin rhythms? Believe it or not, chamber ensemble Sweet Plantain’s sound embodies it all in a fusion with Western classical traditions. We’re looking forward to watching this string quartet perform live on our stage! October 14 at 8:00pm

4 | Trick-or-treating downtown

Okay, so it’s not happening on our stage… but we’re too excited not to mention it! On the Saturday before Halloween, we’ll be joining a group of 50+ downtown shops and restaurants once more in handing out candy to trick-or-treaters. Dress up as something spooky, magical, or even just plain weird and join us in celebrating the festive weekend fun! October 29 at 12:00pm

5 | Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde costume contest

If you think your costume this year is competition-worthy… prove it. This year, anyone up for the challenge will be given the opportunity to compete in our costume contest! To top it off, afterwards everybody wins with a 7:00pm silent film screening of the iconic horror film Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde. And of course, the haunting tones of our mighty Wurlitzer organ will accompany the entire film. October 31 at 6:15pm
