Wow!  10 ¢ Drinks Every Day in OctoberYes, you read that right. Every day in October, the bar at The Grove in Delray Beach will only be charging 10 cents for drinks. However, there is a slight catch: they’re only doing it for 10 minutes every day from 5:30 to 5:40 p.m. The restaurant made the announcement on Instagram. The Grove’s rules are that you must be seated or standing at the bar during the 10-minute time period, and eligible drinks include red and white wine, beer and well cocktails.  (By the way, the price wasn’t anywhere close to buying a beer for 10 cents back in the ’50s, so this is a seriously good deal you don’t want to miss.)  The Grove, 187 NE Second Ave, Delray Beach; 561-266-3750; thegrovedelray.com

October 18 to 21-Young Frankenstein-From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation, The Producers, comes this monster musical comedy. The comedy genius, Mel Brooks, adapts his legendarily funny film into a brilliant stage creation – Young Frankenstein! Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronk-en-steen”) inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor (pronounced “Eye-gore”), and a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally), Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. “It’s alive!” he exclaims as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather’s. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abounds. At Lake Worth Playhouse, 713 Lake Avenue, Lake Worth, FL 33460-Opening Night: 8pm, All seats $38; Show Times are Thursdays-Sundays at 8pm with Sat. & Sun. Matinees at 2pm; For tickets, Click here;  Special: To order Dinner & a Show Package, call 561-586-6410





October 18 to 21-The Ladies Foursome(Back by Popular Demand!) Pigs Do Fly Productions’ production of The Ladies Foursome played to consistently full houses when it ran at Empire Stage last March. The show was such a success that the company’s founder and Executive Producer, Ellen Wacher decided to bring ‘the ladies’ back onto the golf course and let them swing their way through another round! “Why not?” Wacher said recently. “I kept hearing from people saying their friends heard great things about the show and were sorry they’d missed it. Or that they hadn’t laughed so much in the theatre for ages and wanted to see it again. The play – and the dialogue – is thoughtful, clever, realistic, and very, very funny, and it really resonated with our audiences – both men and women. So this is truly a case of ‘back by popular demand’!”  The show’s premise is simple: It’s the day after the funeral, and three women gather for a round of golf in honor of their recently departed play partner. A mysterious fourth joins them, and so begins a raucous and rowdy 18 holes filled with secrets, surprises, confessions… and sex.  “These four women have played golf together every week for 14 years, and they believe this is the perfect way to honor their friend,” Director Genie Croft explained when she spoke about the play last March. “Each one of the foursome has her secrets – some have been taken to the grave, and others are revealed in moments of anger, jealously, drunkenness, and guilt. As they play the links, confessions about men, sex, love, children, and careers come to the fore as they challenge each other’s views. The Ladies Foursome is a tribute to the pitfalls and pleasures of friendships and their lasting significance in our lives.”Tickets for The Ladies Foursome are $39 and are available on line at www.pigsdoflyproductions.com or by calling 866-811-4111. Performances are on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8 pm, and on Sun




October 17 – November 4-Dirty Rotten Scoundrels- Presented by Stage Door Theatre-at their new venue Lauderhill Performing Arts Center (LPAC) -Stage Door’s second production in their new state-of-the-art home should definitely entice their audiences –returning and new: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is an award-winning musical comedy based on the hit movie of the same name. The story: Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother’s failing health. After meeting on a train, they attempt to work together, only to find that their small town isn’t big enough for both of them. They agree on a settlement – the first one to extract $50,000 from their mutual target, young heiress Christine Colgate, wins, and the other must leave town. Sophisticated, suave, and with a good dash of mischief, this thoroughly entertaining musical features a delightfully jazzy score and was nominated for eleven Tony Awards. The music is by David Yazbek (The Full Monty, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, and this year’s Tony Award winner for Best musical, The Band’s Visit). The show’s book is by Jeffrey Lane (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown). The production will be directed by Clayton Phillips: “ I guess if there is a message in it at all, it is that greed does not pay (or does it?). The show is full of twists and turns and is a real comedy from start to finish. I love this musical because it is smart and funny and entertaining,” he says. “And what more could we want these days?!”  The Lauderhill Performing Arts Center (LPAC) is located at 3800 NW 11th Place, Lauderhill (33311), in the Central Broward Regional Park on the North East corner of Sunrise Boulevard and 441 (State Road 7). Tickets for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and for all Stage Door productions remain at $48. (LPAC charges a $5 service fee per ticket, however if a package of four Stage Door shows is purchased the service fees will be waived.) Group rates are available, as are student prices (with valid ID). For more info. and for tickets, call the box office at 954-344-7765 or on line at https://www.stagedoorfl.org or on the LPAC website at https://lpacfl.com. Showtimes:  Wednesday, Saturday, & Sunday at 2 pm; Friday & Saturday at 8 pm; For more information about Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and/or Stage Door Theatre, contact Derelle Bunn Executive Producer/Artistic Director, at DerelleBunn@nullyahoo.com / 954-344-7765 or C



October 18 to November 11-The Pirates of PenzanceFirst play of the 2018-2019 season at the Wick Theater in Boca-The Gilbert and Sullivan treasure returned to Broadway in 1981 under the direction of Joseph Papp and went on to win the Tony Award for “Best Revival.” This adventurous tale with an enthralling love story is suited for buccaneers of all ages. “The Pirates of Penzance is swashbuckling good time, filled with topsy-turvy plot twists and a brilliant score,” said Marilynn A. Wick, Managing Executive Producer. “We are thrilled to be kicking-off our 6th season with this beloved family classic.” The comic musical’s plot follows Frederic, who is released from his apprenticeship ater 21 years,  to a band of tender-hearted pirates. He meets Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley, and the two young people fall instantly in love. Frederic soon learns, however, that he was born on the 29th of February, and so, technically, he has a birthday only once each leap year. His indenture specifies that he remain apprenticed to the pirates until his “twenty-first birthday,” meaning that he must serve for another 63 years! Bound by his own sense of duty, Frederic’s only solace is that Mabel agrees to wait for him faithfully.The brilliant nonsense is punctuated with beautiful songs including, “Climbing Over Rocky Mountains”; Mabel’s gorgeous waltz entrance “Poor Wandering One”; the lilting duet “Oh, Leave Me Not To Pine”; the Major-General’s patter song “I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General” ; the ballad of the cowardly constables, “A Policeman’s Lot Is Not a Happy One”; and the infectiously invigorating “Come Friends Who Plow the Sea.”   Tickets are $75-$85, www.TheWick.org or call the box office at 561-995-2333.

SPECIAL EVENT: Try Indoor Skydiving at iFLY Fort Lauderdale!   iFLY, the world’s largest indoor skydiving operator, has announced the introduction of a first-of-its-kind virtual reality experience to complement current flight offerings. Consumers will “jump” at the chance to take indoor skydiving to new “heights,” experiencing near-real-life skydiving sights in some of the nation’s most beautiful destinations – like Southern California, Hawaii, Switzerland and Dubai without setting foot in (or out of) an airplane. Fliers will also see themselves seamlessly jumping from a plane through a hyper-realistic free-falling experience, with complete immersion via iFLY’s state-of-the-art VR helmet and headset. The experience utilizes first-of-its-kind virtual reality technology application, powered by Samsung Gear VR headsets and iFLY’s wind tunnel technology, allowing participants to combine the thrill of skydiving from the perspective of a professional skydiver all in a safe and controlled environment. “The idea of a virtual reality flight experience has been a dream of the iFLY brand for more than two decades, but the technology wasn’t there,” said Dave Kirchhoff, iFLY CEO. “VR headsets are nothing new but nobody is applying VR technology to real-life scenarios like this. We are truly pushing boundaries to make this iFLY experience one-of-a-kind by making the dream of flight more tangible and more real than ever before.” All participating flyers must first complete iFLY’s pre-flight training course and participate in several training flights before jumping into VR. The iFLY Virtual Reality Flight Experience is available to individuals ages eight and up. For more information and scheduling a visit to iFLY Fort Lauderdale, visit www.iflyworld.com/fort-lauderdale or call 954-280-4359.
