3 ways to improve your weekend

Looking to make your cultural life just a little richer? These events promise to leave an impression in your mind, but not your wallet.

After Miss Julie

An August Strindberg novel gets a re-vamping in the real-life setting of the James J. Hill House kitchen. On the eve of Labour's 1945 historic victory over Churchill and the Conservatives, Miss Julie descends into the servants' kitchen of her father's country mansion in search of the chauffeur John. Over one long midsummer's night, Miss Julie's world is turned head over heels. Performances run through November 20. Tickets are $20, or half your age if you're under 30.

The Center of the Margins

Mixed Blood Theatre presents a trio of plays that explore the world of disability. Whether deaf, or autistic, or caring for a child with cerebral palsy, these characters examine what it means to be different and yet whole. Tickets are free, on a first come, first served basis.

Katha Dance Theatre presents EKAM - The Supreme Oneness, set to the gospel songs of Robert Robinson and his company of musicians. Performances run tonight and tomorrow at the Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts. Tickets run $15 - $25.
