The Week Ahead: Friday, January 26 through Thursday, February 1, 2018
January 26, 2018
The Week Ahead winds up the month of January with a flurry of snowflakes (predicted for Tuesday!) and events to keep us both engaged and entertained. Movie buffs have many opportunities to enjoy films – both classic, and new releases – at the Vineyard Playhouse and Vineyard Haven Library. And, the MV Film Center has a line-up of Oscar contenders that fans won’t want to miss. Or, head over to the MV Playhouse for a wild and wonderful rendition of Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure that’s apt to change your assumptions about classical theater forever. Be a friend to animals and enjoy a great Italian dinner too at the Second Chance Animal Rescue’s Dinner & Silent Auction. Later in the week as the rare ‘blue moon’ rises in the night sky, Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary invites us to its ongoing Full Moon Owl Prowl presentation. Next evening, wind up the week with wizards and owls of the literary variety at Harry Potter Book Night. Have fun and enjoy the Week Ahead!
