Yes, you may still want to GET OUT, but first, you have to COME BACK.
Here’s a quick look at what’s happening and what’s NOT happening the remainder of this weekend. And…here’s hoping all you BREVARD CULTURE readers weathered Hurricane Matthew without too much damage.
MAURITIUS at Melbourne Civic Theatre WILL RUN AS SCHEDULED 8 p.m. tonight, Saturday, and 2 p.m. tomorrow, Sunday. This is a smart production of a wily play filled with intrigue and angst. It is directed with high concept style by Peg Girard and performed with both ease and intensity by a terrific cast. The play concerns a woman wanting to sell a stamp she believes to be priceless, her greedy sister and a cunning philatelist. In addition to intelligence, there’s plenty of adult language in this show (which is really very funny). The show runs through Nov. 6. at MCT, 817 E. Strawbridge Ave., Melbourne. Tickets are $26 to $28. Call 321-723-6935, visit MyMCT.org or click onto their ad.JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT had to cancel both performances for today, Saturday, at the Historic Cocoa Village Playhouse. The theater will re-open tomorrow, Sunday, for the 2:30 p.m. performance. There are seats available to that performance. To accommodate disappointed patrons, CVP has added performances as follows: 7:30 p.m. Friday, October 14th; 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, October 15th; and 2 p.m. Sunday, October 16th. All tickets to shows that had to be cancelled will be honored, but you need to reschedule. Call 321-636-5050 this Sunday, 12:30 p.m. – 5 p.m., or Monday – Friday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Tickets are $19 to $30. The Cocoa Village Playhouse is at 300 Brevard Ave., Cocoa.

LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS at Titusville Playhouse WILL RUN AS SCHEDULED 8 p.m. today, Saturday, and 2 p.m. tomorrow, Sunday.

FOOSANER ART MUSEUM is closed until Wednesday. The RUTH FUNK CENTER FOR TEXTILE ARTS is closed until Tuesday. The FIFTH AVENUE ART GALLERY is not answering the phone, so my guess is it will re-open Tuesday. Click onto their ads for more information.
