This week: emergencies, dioramas and nordic tongues


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

What happens when you dial 911? Find out today at the 911 Citizens Academy at the Public Safety Building.

The chattering class is in full force this week. Nerd Nite is back Tuesday at the Teatro Zuccone with presentations on the lack of female leads in video games, British panel shows, and steampunk audio. Chester Chat has a presentation on Women in Leadership at Glensheen Mansion on Wednesday.

Starting this week the Nordic Center has several classes on Scandinavian languages, including Norwegian, Danish and Swedish.

The Cole Porter musical, Anything Goes, opens this Thursday at the Playhouse and runs three weekends. The other musicals running in town, Hairspray at The Underground and Next to Normal at Teatro Zuccone, are playing to sold out houses and getting great reviews.

Dog Sees God is an unauthorized parody of the Peanuts gang in high school and it opens at UWS Experimental Theater on Friday and runs two weekends.

March is Food Shelf Month and you can support your local food bank at Taste at Fitgers on Friday.

The Minnesota Ballet presents A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the DECC on Saturday.

Diorama-rama, the biennial celebration of dioramas minuscule and huge, quaint and odd, is back Saturday night at Sacred Heart.

Think what church needs is more beer? Beer & Hymns, a monthly gathering for beer drinking and hymn singing, returns to Sir Ben’s on Sunday.

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