Dancer, choreographer, and certified Pilates instructor Alisa Schillinger fell in love with dance as a high-school student—a love that she now passes on to the students at Axis Of Movement. Teaching dance styles including hip hop, breakdance, tap, ballet, jazz, and lyrical, Schillinger and her staff help students to master leaps, turns, taps, and splits. When not pirouetting through the studio, Alisa also teaches Pilates, and an on-staff massage therapist helps keep bodies limber in ways that have nothing to do with spelling out YMCA with your arms.
Jesters Dinner Theatre’s all-teen production of the Tony Award–winning musical Into the Woods follows a baker and his wife as they encounter a motley cast of companions and obstacles on their quest to have a child. Lyrics and music by Stephen Sondheim accompany the intertwining of storylines and faces familiar from the Brothers Grimm fairy tales, such as "Little Red Riding Hood," "Jack and the Beanstalk," "Rapunzel," "Cinderella," and "Snow White and Jimmy Carter Play Flag Football." Dinner begins at 5:30 p.m., and the curtain rises at 7 p.m.
Buried deep within the walls of the infamous Nightmare Factory is a hidden passage that descends two levels into Gordon Cottingham's Hospital for the Mentally Insane. Recently discovered, and deeper and darker than the previous levels, the damp and musty corridors are infested with spiders, rats, snakes, and other vermin. The eerie atmosphere is amplified by the endless screams of the tortured and damned souls that met their demise within the walls of the hospital. From the creators of the 13th Floor haunted house and Nightmare Factory, the Asylum features new frights for in-your-face terror.
Cinebarre merges the excitement of moviegoing with the satisfaction of a full stomach, with the full-service restaurant and bar’s menu of hearty American favorites complementing a lineup of new releases. Moviegoers settle into plush seats or sprawl out in spacious aisles in front of the big screen while chowing down on mounds of fries ($6) or sextets of fried green tomatoes dunked in ranch ($7). Homemade pizza dough showcases pepperoni, canadian bacon, and sausage in the Bull Durham pie ($12.50), or a hearty Blue Velvet burger ($11) packs a half-pound Angus beef patty beneath layers of buffalo hot sauce, blue cheese, and smoky chipotle mayo. As they enjoy current offerings such as The Grey and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, patrons can cast new orders—such as for a slice of cheesecake ($6) or a glass of sauvignon blanc ($7)—by scribbling their comestible choice across an order form or a companion’s forehead, then waiting for a waiter to deliver it to their seats.
