Some fun First State events to dive into this weekend.
1. Classic zombie film “Night of the Living Dead” will spook audiences in a stage-play adaptation.
The production by the Second Street Players
follows a group who take refuge in an abandoned house when corpses begin to leave the graveyard in search of fresh human bodies to eat.
Ben tries his best to control the situation. But when the reanimated bodies surround the house, the other survivors begin to panic. Once the zombies manage to get inside the house, the living humans become prey of the living dead.
“Night of the Living Dead” will come to life at the Riverfront Theater, 2 S. Walnut St., Milford at 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday; and at 2 p.m., Sunday. COST $17 daily; $16 for students, military and seniors Sunday only. INFO secondstreetplayers.com or (800) 838-3006.
2. Not all members of royalty wear crowns – which is very true for the Gipsy Kings.
The Latin band caught the world’s attention with their self-titled debut album over two decades ago.
The album sold enough to be certified gold and platinum, introducing millions of listeners to a unique, irresistible blend of traditional flamenco styles with Western pop and Latin rhythms.
The Gipsy Kings have returned with “Savor Flamenco,” their ninth and latest studio album. The project marks the first time in their storied career that the Kings have produced themselves and written all of the material.
Gipsy Kings will grace The Freeman Stage at Bayside, 31750 Lake View Drive, Selbyville at 7:30 p.m., Sunday. COST $55 to $85. INFO freemanstage.org or 436-3015.
3. “Uprising: Remembrance, Resistance, Revival” is a multi-layered art production featuring the artwork of Terrance Vann and choreography by Ashley SK Davis.
Through modern dance and contemporary art, “Uprising” reflects upon the actions of the people and the government in 1968 and then jumps forward 50 years in an artistic expression of events in Wilmington, including the populist revolution.
“Uprising” will be featured at the Delaware Art Museum, 2301 Kentmere Parkway, Wilmington from 1 to 3 p.m., Sunday. COST Free. INFO delart.org or 571-9590.
