Want some theater with your Thunder? Wanting to avoid Thunder Over Louisville altogether? Not a problem, as there are three shows taking place this Saturday in and outside of Louisville.
For those wanted a varied day (theater and Thunder), the University of Louisville theater department will present "How Osanmi Chose His Head" at 11 a.m. on Saturday. The show is based on Nigerian folklore and features plenty of dancing, drumming, and a story on patience, humility, and respect. Tickets can be purchased at the door or by calling the U of L box office. Tickets are $8-$12 each. Watch this production, and be done before the start of the air show.
For those willing to brave some of the Thunder traffic, Finnigan Productions will host its 4th annual Festival of Funky Fresh Fun. This festival brings together local playwrights, directors, and actors for an evening of short, comedic plays. The Saturday night show is at 7:30 p.m. in the Rudyard Kipling. Tickets are $12 per person, and reservations, which are recommended, can be made by calling the Rudyard Kipling at 502-636-1311.
Finally, for those not wanting to be in Louisville at all during Thunder Over Louisville, the Shelby County Community will present the comedy Girls of the Garden Club. The presidency is up for grabs, and Rhoda Greenleaf will do anything to get it, including entering a "talking" plant into a flower show. The Saturday night performance is at the Shelby Co. Community Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10-$14 and can be reserved by calling 502-633-0242.
If you can't make any of the shows on Thunder Over Louisville day, fear not, as the U of L show will run through Sunday, and the Finnigan and Shelby County shows will go into next week. More information on the shows can be found by clicking on the links above.
