Encore Magazine gives best picks of the weekend (2/23)
WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Encore Magazine gives us the
best picks of the weekend.
Opera House Theater Company
opens the first show of its 2013 season called "She Loves Me."
It's based on a play
called "Parfumerie" which has been adapted into a number of movies
including "You've Got Mail." A
man and a woman who dislike each other end up falling in love through letters. The musical runs through February 24 and
again from March 1-3 at Thalian Hall. Performances
are at 8pm with Sunday matinees at 3pm.
Also at Thalian Hall,
there will be a tribute to the late Paco Strickland. He was a well-known flamenco guitar player in
the Wilmington area who died recently from cancer. His day of remembrance will begin at 6:45 am
Saturday with a paddle out at Shell Island Resort in Wrightsville Beach. Then there will be a memorial at Thalian Hall
from 2pm to 5pm.
At 6pm, friends and
family will gather at Mixto restaurant on Water Street in downtown Wilmington
to host a jam tribute.
Photographer Arrow Ross
will have his work on display at two locations – WHQR's M.C. Erny Gallery on
North Front Street and Acme Art Studio on North 5th Avenue. He went to India with the non-profit group Homes
of Hope and documented girls' lives from their time in the slums to when they
get into orphanages and start receiving better care. The photos will hang in Acme through February
24th. They'll hang at WHQR until March
