This week: gender-swapping Shakespeare and roller derby


Here’s a sampling of what you have to look forward to this week on the PDD Calendar.

There are Earth Day related activities today down at the Maritime Center in Canal Park.

Do you like beer and movies? Well on Tuesday you can enjoy a beer while watching movies about beer at the Zinema 2. Yeah, they get meta like that.

Coriolana, a gender-swapping version of William Shakespeare’s Coriolanus, opens on Thursday and runs two weekends at UMD.

The Underground, the new venue in the Depot, has its grand opening this Friday and Saturday with music, theater, and a special Nerd Nite presentation.

Saturday night it’s time for roller derby! With your Harbor City Roller Dames taking on the Fargo Moorhead Derby Girls at the DECC with the musical stylings of Big Wave Dave and the Ripples.

And Sunday? Nothing’s happening Sunday. Well, except if you’re interested in this little local music festival that begins then.

So what are you doing this week? Can we tag along? Any upcoming events that you want to promote? Let us know.
