Lerner and Loewe’s six-time Tony Award–winning Broadway musical My Fair Lady adapts George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion into the tale of snooty phonetics professor Henry Higgins, who makes a wager that he can transform cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle into an upstanding member of high society. As Higgins comically struggles to supplant Eliza’s chimney-sweep accent and guttural demeanor for fancy savoir-faire, a romance unfolds proving that love conquers all forms of enunciation. Audiences waltz with their armrests as classic show tunes such as “I Could Have Danced All Night” and “On the Street Where You Live” stake their claim in memory banks for future shower serenades.

What evil lurks in the shadows inside Fearesta? The only way to find out is to see for yourself. Known as San Antonio's "newest/oldest haunted event," Fearesta, formerly known as Nightmare on Grayson, opens its doors for only 17 days in the dead of autumn and keeps its haunts shrouded in mystery from the public. With special effects, the element of surprise, and theatrical illusions, be prepared to scream?or at least to make that choked up sound that happens when you get the scream scared out of you.

The Witte Museum was born from many minds seeking a singular goal: to create a public forum that promoted lifelong learning. From a $65,000 gift bequeathed to the city of San Antonio after Alfred Witte's death in 1921, this museum of science, natural history, and South Texas heritage was built along the San Antonio River and named after the late Witte's parents.

Today, the Witte Museum still pursues this wide range of knowledge with hands-on scientific and historical exhibits. The museum's long-term features portray the natural wonders of southern Texas, including ancient rock art from the lower Pecos, examples of local ecology, and dinosaur fossils found locally while trying to uncover lost time capsules.

Named San Antonio's Best Museum in the 2010 Nickelodeon Parents' Choice Awards, San Antonio Children's Museum has ushered more than two million guests through its educational wonderland since opening in 1995. Tykes can explore permanent exhibits such as Science City, with hands-on exhibits covering physics, engineering, and how to extract highlighter ink from lightning bugs. In PowerBall Hall, children man simple machines to send orbs up to a lofty cage until the chamber fills and unleashes a spherical torrent down upon the delighted little ones. Other exhibits impart lessons of financial responsibility and proper nutrition in a make-believe bank and market. Membership is calibrated for any permutation of the family unit, and grants amenities including unlimited visits for a year, a subscription to the museum newsletter “Spark!,” and access to more than 40 classes where kids can submit theses on baking-soda volcanoes for peer review.
