Live Music & Theater Happenings This Weekend! 4/9/10-4/11/10
As the saying goes, when it rains, it pours. There's lots to do this weekend here in Waukegan!

Bowen Park Theater Company is presenting The Complete (Abridged) Works of William Shakespeare on April 9, 10 at 8:00p.m. and on April 11 at 3:00 p.m. and also on April 16-17 in the Lynn Schornick Theater located in the Jack Benny Center for the Arts, 39 Jack Benny Drive-Bowen Park, Waukegan.

The live music at Joplin's Java and Ragtime Cafe, located at 114 S. Genesee St., suite 402 has been consistently offering a great listening experience for those who know a top-notch performance when they hear it. An event is scheduled for this Friday at 7:30 p.m. featuring Latin percussionist Sammy Torres and his band. Here's their web site for more info:

Saturday night, at 7:30 p.m. the Brick Cafe and Bookstore, located at 30 N. Genesee St. is featuring live blues music by
Katsu Kosaka & Yukari Nakamura. This piano & hamonica duo comes from the deepest blues country - South State Street! Playing jazz, pops & blues, Katsu and Yukari have played with many Chicago greats: Billy Branch, Carlos Johnson, and more.

This show promises to be smooth and soulful - don't miss this one!
Admission: $8.00 Tickets available at The BRICK, on or before the day of the performance.

And last but not least, there is a FREE chamber music concert being presented by members of the Waukegan Symphony Orchestra at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday at the First Presbyterian Church of Waukegan, 122. N. Martin Luther King Jr. Ave. You'll hear:
Heroic music for Organ & Brass
Shostakovich - String Quartet No. 8
Dvořák - Wind Serenade in D Minor

There is going to be some incredible playing - you'll be inspired after hearing this and glad you made the effort to seek a change of pace from your normal Sunday routine.

Since we want you to attend the live music and theater, anyone with a hankering to see The Godfather at the Genesee Theater this weekend could watch the Saturday matinee at 3:00 p.m. and still make it to the Brick or the Jack Benny Center for the Arts for Saturday night's show.'s all happening in Waukegan this weekend!
