If you’re looking for something new to do, check out What You’ll Do, WYDaily’s best bets for the weekend ahead. Just pick one (or three) and go for it! And if you have an event to promote, remember to put it on our free Talk of the Town calendar at WYDaily.com.

Should you find yourself wondering where we find all this great stuff to do – or maybe even why your fabulous, don’t-miss-it event isn’t listed – here’s the answer: We rely on our calendar (it’s called Talk of the Town, and it’s on the right-hand side of the WYDaily.com homepage) for our best bets. Anyone is welcome to post events on it, for free. So use it, please, and for events happening this weekend please share them below in the comments.

This weekend offers a host of things to do, from theater events to concerts and things to do with the kids, so read on and get ready for fun!

Theater
Don’t forget that this weekend is the Williamsburg Players’ production of “Jesus Christ Superstar” at their Playhouse on Hubbard Lane. “Jesus Christ Superstar” is a rock opera musical based on the last seven days of Jesus’ life, is told as seen through the eyes of Judas. The calendar can tell you about show times and dates.

This is the last weekend to see Panglossian Productions and Williamsburg Regional Library’s “Zoo/Baby,” an evening of great American absurdist theatre, featuring Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Edward Albee’s play “The Zoo Story” and Tony Award winner Christopher Durang’s play “Baby With The Bathwater.” If you haven’t gone yet, click here to get ticket and show time information!
