Weekend Spotlight: Frogs, Toads, Beetles and Princesses

It looks like a beautiful weekend ahead. In addition to these highlights below, make sure to check out the Go West Mother's Day Guide (still a few chances to encourage your kids to make a homemade gift!) and of course the Go West Calendar.

Salt Creek Ballet is performing this weekend at the McAninch Arts Center in Glen Ellyn.MEET THE BEETLES: The Elgin Public Museum is hosting its monthly science night on Friday at 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The theme this month is "Beetle Mania." Learn about this insect at stations set up around the museum, conduct experiments and check out demonstrations. The cost is $2 per person.

AMPHIBIANS UNITE!: CYT is performing "A Year With Frog and Toad" this weekend at the Performing Arts Center at Huntley High School. The show description promises to follow the spirit of the original classic stories, focusing on friendship and the attributes that make each of us special. Tickets in advance are $12 for adults, $9 for children; you'll pay $2 more at the door. Performances are Friday at 7 p.m., Saturday at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. (CYT's DuPage Branch is performing "The Music Man Jr." this weekend at Timothy Christian School in Elmhurst.)

PRINCESS AURORA: The McAninch Arts Center at the College of DuPage is hosting the Salt Creek Ballet this weekend. The troupe will be performing the wedding scenes from "The Sleeping Beauty" (featuring other fairy tale characters like Little Red Riding Hood) and other selections from its repertory. Performances are Saturday at 5 p.m and Sunday at 2 p.m.. Tickets are $30 for adults, $20 for youth.

STARRY NIGHT: The Fox Valley Astronomical Society is hosting one of its "public star parties" on Saturday night. These are usually offered at Peck Farm Park, but this month, the public observing time will get underway at 8 p.m. outside at the Stephen Persinger Recreation Center, across from the farm. This event is free.
