Apr 17-May 17 - Theatre B presents Clybourne Park. This wickedly funny and fiercely provocative play about race, real estate, and the volatile values of each is inspired by Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun. Act One takes place in 1959 as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house fifty years later, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification. 2012 Tony Award winner for best play. Thurs-Sat, with a Sunday Matinee May 4. For more information, contact Theatre B at programs@theatreb.org or by calling 729-8880

Apr 24-25 & May 1-4 - Theatre NDSU presents Why Torture is Wrong and the People Who Love Them by Christopher Durang. This brilliantly funny play blunts the edge of what might appear to be gruesomely violent by turning reality into farce.  This is the story of a young woman in crisis: is her new husband a terrorist?  Is her father's butterfly hobby a cover for his involvement in a shadow government?  Is her mother insane or does she just love the theatre? Thurs-Sat at 7:30pm; Sun at 2pm. Walsh Studio Theatre. For tickets visit http://tickets.ndsu.nodak.edu/eventperformances.asp?evt=54

May 3 - Plains Art Museum will hold its 18th annual Spring Gala from 7pm-midnight. This year’s theme is “Optical Illusions,” inspired by The One Minute Film Festival exhibition. Guests are encouraged to add illusion and illumination into their attire through patterns, color, wearable art, holograms, and LED or other light up accessories. The Museum’s décor will feature special lighting effects designed by Raul Gomez, and guests will be able to create their own laser paintings and take photos of the temporary creations. An animated projection mapping sequence will premiere at the Gala, created by Ruben Lara and scored by Dave Hanson. The Spring Gala features a silent auction of 71 artworks, all of which will be listed on plainsart.org and featured in a free art auction catalogue available at the Museum by early April. A preview exhibition of the works will open two weeks prior to the Gala in the Museum’s Starion Gallery. The auction event will be enhanced this year through use of a wireless bidding system that allows bids to be placed and tracked on electronic bid pads next to each work of art, as well as at kiosk stations throughout the Museum and via bidders’ smartphones. Live music will be performed by The Carluster Cumplebee Orchestra and by Diane Miller and the Silver Daggers. The event also offers the area’s largest wine and beer tastings by Happy Harry’s Bottle Shops, food from Mosaic Foods, cocktails by Sidestreet Grille & Pub, desserts by Nichole’s Fine Pastry, and coffee by Dunn Brothers Coffee Co. Tickets are now on sale at www.plainsart.org, on site at the Museum, or by calling 551-6100. The cost is $100, but can be purchased up through April 18 for the discounted price of $90. All proceeds benefit the Museum’s educational programs and $45 is tax deductible

May 9 - NDSU Opera presents Gianni Schicchi and Trial by Jury, An Evening of Comic Opera! Chaos ensues in Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi after an extremely wealthy man dies and the family searches frantically for the will. After realizing he left his possessions to the local monastery, the family encourages Gianni Schicchi to impersonate the dead man long enough to change the will. In the end, Schicchi agrees, but with consequences the greedy family had not foreseen. Trial by Jury, like other Gilbert and Sullivan operas, lampoons contemporary society. A jilted bride sues for breach of promise of marriage: the young man has found a new love. While the judge and jury are taken with the bride, the ladies in the gallery are enamored with the young man. By behaving as if everything were perfectly reasonable, the characters in this satire of the legal system reveal truths about common foibles and follies of men, women, society, and universal situations. 7:30pm, Festival Concert Hall.

Apr 15 - Bob Splichal has been able to work another set of photography classes into his busy work schedule.  The art gallery will host those classes from 6:30-8:30pm. Please call the gallery at 701-591-1010 to register. You need not take these classes in any certain order. They are both basic photography classes and will help you better understand how your camera works and how to take more interesting and more appealing pictures. The fees for the classes are $15.00 each or $25 for both. You must sign up for both classes at once to get the reduced price of $25.00. Prepay to reserve your place in the class.  (We take both charge and debit cards at the gallery for your convenience.) Red Door Art Gallery and Museum. Email: RDAG@midconetwork.com
