Entertainment set on Peninsula this weekend

A variety of entertainment is available this weekend on the North Olympic Peninsula.

• First Friday Art Walk will be from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. tonight in Sequim. For venues and information, see SequimArtWalk.com.

Each art walk has a color theme. The color theme for the June First Friday Art Walk is white and the whole visible spectrum.

• The Nerd” will be presented at Olympic Theatre Arts beginning tonight and running through June 18.

Show times are at 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays at the theater at 41 N. Sequim Ave. Cost is $20 per ticket or $15 for students. Tickets are available at olympictheatrearts.org.

The two-act, seven-character play revolves around Willum Cubbert, an aspiring architect in Terre Haute, Ind., who is visited by a fellow ex-GI whom he has never met but who saved his life after he was seriously wounded in Vietnam. Willum is delighted when Rick Steadman shows up unexpectedly at his apartment, but Steadman’s awkward manner and inappropriate behavior throw the occasion into shambles.

• “Nifty Fifties” will be performed by the Olympic Peninsula Academy drama class tonight and Saturday.

The musical comedy hits the stage for three performances (7 p.m. tonight and 1:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday) at the Sequim High School auditorium, 533 N. Sequim Ave.

The play is free although the school asks for a suggested $5 donation to help fund future drama productions.

• Buzz Rogowski will perform from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. tonight at the Old Alcohol Plant Inn, 310 Hadlock Bay Road, Port Hadlock. No cover charge.

• RainShadow Chorale will present two performances of its spring concert, The Seal Lullaby, this weekend.

Performances are at 7 p.m. Saturday at Lutheran Church of the Redeemer, 45 Redeemer Way, Chimacum, and at 3 p.m. Sunday at First Presbyterian Church, 1111 Franklin St., Port Townsend.

Tickets for the performances will be available at the door. Tickets are for a suggested donation of $20 for adults and $10 for students.

Artistic director Laurie de Leonne promises an evening pairing classical pieces with newer composers. For example, the choir will sing two arrangements of “Sure on this Shining Night,” which will open and close the concert.
