Posted at 10:44 AM, Nov 07, 2022

LANSING, Mich. — Good morning mid-Michigan.

I have a quick look at what’s happening in Arts, Culture and Entertainment this week in the ACE report.

East Lansing Film Festival             
Through Nov. 10

The 25th annual East Lansing Film Festival continues through Thursday.
ELFF, for short, has been bringing independent films to mid-Michigan since 1997. The world-class film festival showcases dramas, comedies, documentaries and short films.

Reduced Shakespeare Company’s
Hamlet’s Big Adventure (a prequel)
Nov. 9 and 10  
Wharton Center    

This coming Wednesday and Thursday, the Reduced Shakespeare Company returns to Wharton Center to present Hamlet’s Big Adventure (a prequel)

What will young Hamlet grow up to be? That is the question!

It’s a fast, funny and physical extravaganza filled with a whole bunch of fun.

For The Love Of (or the roller derby play)              
Nov. 11-20              
Arena Theatre at MSU Auditorium

This Friday, the Michigan State University’sDepartment of Theatre presents For The Love Of (or, the roller derby play.)

It follows the story of a derby player who can’t believe it when she is invited to join the popular Brooklyn Scallywags.

The play's director, Alexis Black, says, “the show is about building community, finding connection, and fighting for what makes your heart come alive.”

The production also features a unique collaboration with MSU’s College of Music.

Jackson Symphony Orchestra
Fire & Ice
Saturday, Nov. 12 at 7:30 p.m.
Potter Center, Jackson

Saturday, the Jackson Symphony Orchestra celebrates the second concert of its 73rd season by presenting Fire & Ice

The concert combines music with a Latin Flare. The orchestra is teaming up with the Jackson Youth Symphony Orchestra to present Mexican composer Arturo Marquez’s red-hot Congo del Fuego *(del Fwaygo)

A free, interactive lecture is planned before the concert, so you can get more of an idea of what you’ll hear during the performance.

That’s a quick look at events taking place across mid-Michigan. Whatever you do this week, I hope you ACE it.
