As part of their Shakespeare-Under-the-Stars series, First Folio Theatre will perform Romeo and Juliet, the Bard’s timeless tale of love, betrayal, and teenage angst. The play centers around two young lovers, born into bitterly feuding families, who risk their lives and their families’ wraths in order to launch a joint space program. As the plot progresses, smitten eyes give way to fighters leaping and lunging across the stage with swords drawn to defend loyalty and avenge loss. Audiences behold the saga in general admission arrangements on a scenic, sloping lawn. Set beside a Tudor revival manor and an Italian-replica chapel, the outdoor theater evokes the essence of Verona, complete with that region's legendary poison vendors.
Bursting with two fully equipped dance studios and a philosophy of noncompetitive learning, Dance Center of LaGrange brings skilled teachers and a miscellany of dance types to the feet of dancers both young and old. Tykes can twirl toward the 45–60 minute summer-session classes to introduce tentative toes to preballet and creative movement (ages 3–4), learning new moves and gaining confidence while composing a rhythmic symphony with their 10-toed orchestra. The Storycise class (ages 3–5) combines storytelling and exercise to produce a hybrid fitness adventure filled with heart-pumping moves and poses that spell entire novel chapters. Teens can hit up the modern/jazz class for a medley of Broadway-style shimmying, and grown-up steppers can twist into adult tap, lacing up specialty shoes to conquer rapid routines and drum out grocery lists onto the hardwood floor.
Built in 1925, the historic La Grange Theatre was recently renovated to restore its original murals, install comfortable seats, and deck out the walls with a brand new sound system. Choose from an array of discounted, recently run films that paint four silver screens with cinematic action, comedy, and romance. Beforehand, moviegoers can swing by the new concession stand for icy sodas, buttery popcorn, and sweet fistfuls of candy. On the way to your seat, admire the glow that the twinkling chandeliers cast upon the touched-up ceiling murals, which depict pastoral scenes of lords and ladies silencing their cell phones.
The turf warriors of the U.S. Women’s National Team will employ all the fancy footwork and precision-timed plays in its arsenal to continue a 49-game winning streak at home and defeat the rival Mexican team. Sideline-level tickets grant uninterrupted action vistas featuring Abby Wambach’s lethal headers and half-volleys. The match is the final game on U.S. soil before the team travels to Germany to face North Korea in their 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup opener.
