This weekend, Phoenix feels the felt, runs into the future, and turns the tv on when it really shouldn’t.
Friday, May 15th
Finally, a puppet show that retells the original trilogy on stage while lampooning every other sci-fi show ever. I’m going to try to make it to one of these showings, for sure. Family friendly and should be wicked fun.
Plays for a few weeks with lots of showtimes.
Or if you prefer witches & potions over Jedi & Porkins, take the family to the Desert Botanical Garden to check out a sing-songy version of Cymbeline.
Shows all weekend.

The Heard Museum is all about superheroes for a while. Looks like there’s a kids costuming event at 2pm as well. Super!
Throw on some fairy wings then head down to the Irish Cultural Center in Phoenix to spend a night frolicking and celebrating all things dragon. Family friendly and it’s free to attend.
Starts at 5pm.
I was on the fence about including this one, but I figured some of you may enjoy a neon-drenched-futuristic-techno-powered-costume-centric run, so why not?
Things start moving at 5pm at Rawhide Western Town.
How can I not mention that Ruby Rhod himself is coming?! He’s doing stand-up at the Celebrity Theater around 8pm. Of course, tickets aren’t cheap. You may need a multi-pass. We green?
That random pop-up 80’s arcade is back this weekend in Gilbert. Doors open around 8:30pm. Bring quarters. Lots and lots of quarters. And caffeinated soda, probably.
Surround yourself with fellow fans and enjoy the movie that reminded us to never, ever, ever, ever buy your kid a toy clown, for crying out loud.
Starts at 9:30pm at Tempe Pollack Cinemas

What, you think you can drink the innocent blood of virgins with those human teeth of yours? Please. Make yourself some legit acrylic chompers with the AZ Haunters at HeatSync Labs. Goes all day.
