This is the first of this summer season! Friday @ Donkey Creek Park for adults … the 80’s slap-stick, cult-classic “Airplane” plays on the big inflatable screen. Heralded as one of the top-ten funniest movies ever made.  Adults can bring their blankets and low-rise lawn chairs on this perfect evening! Tomorrow night, Saturday, the fun begins for the whole family at Skansie Park with “Where the Wild Things Are”. With mixed reviews, it’s a critically acclaimed adaptation of the beloved book by author Maurice Sendak.

Sunday July 11: Grease at Encore theater 7PM!  6615 38th Ave Gig Harbor (253) 858-2282

Well, yes it’s not a movie, but a play adaptation. Here is Rydell High’s senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding “Burger Palace Boys” and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking “Pink Ladies” in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical. Head “greaser” Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their “Summer Nights” as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as “Greased Lightnin'”, “It’s Raining on Prom Night”, “Alone at the Drive-In Movie” recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. An 8-year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals along with innumerable school and community productions place Grease among the world’s most popular musicals.  Showtimes Friday and Saturday 7:30 pm and Sunday 2 pm

Other worthy and notable events this weekend: beach walks at Kopachuck and Penrose, Farmers Market at Kimball, Fox Island Market. For more detailed information, visit The Gig Harbor Guide.
