Be Entertained by Four Day Weekend

Four Day Weekend is celebrating its 25th year in business! Every Friday and Saturday night this summer, they will be putting on their classic comedy shows that are sure to make you laugh just as they have for the last 25 years.

See a Show (or two, or three)

The Broadway at the Bass presented by PNC Bank series features Rodgers & Hammerstein's Oklahoma!, Jesus Christ Super Star, and Mean Girls. Circle Theatre puts on Young Frankenstein from June 16-July 23. This musical stage adaptation of the Mel Brooks' film is sure to leave your sides in stitches (pun intended!). Jubilee Theater's If Pretty Hurts…doesn't ask "How much is beauty worth?" but rather, "Why are so many willing to pay its price?" running May 27–June 26.
