The days when a media outlet could conceivably list every single weekend event in the Triad are long gone, and only a few of us old-timers can remember what it was like back then. Today there are at least a hundred events every week, of varying degrees of quality. We sort through them all so you don’t have to.

If you have an event you’d like to be considered for inclusion in the Weekender, email me at [email protected] Sign up for the email blast here. And don’t forget to tell all your friends.


  • The Winston-Salem Theatre Alliance and the stage musical Grease go together like rama lama lama ka dinga da dinga dong. Check out the short summer run this weekend on the alliance stage. Gonna be systematic, hydromatic, ultramatic… an awful lot like greased lightning. One more: With a four-speed on the floor, it’s likely they’ll be waiting at the door.
  • Triad Stage‘s Greensboro run of All’s Well that Ends Well makes its final stand this weekend.
  • And upstairs at the Upstage Cabaret, Theatre 232, a collaboration between Triad Stage and the UNCG Theatre Department, Jack & the Jellbeanstalk runs on Friday and Saturday.






  • Kind of quiet today. Maybe you should cut your lawn.
