On Saturday, nonprofit Henley Street Theatre and Richmond Shakespeare present the Fifth Annual Bootleg Shakespeare a one night only, free performance, in which professional actors come together with their lines memorized and their own costumes and props to mount an unrehearsed production of Pericles.

Also on Saturday, Live Arts hosts its annual Gala, Charlottesville’s most over-the-top party where a cast of 250 volunteers create several changing environments in which to party throughout this surreal night of debauchery for a cause.

For family fun on Sunday, head to the Halloween Carnival in Harrisonburg at the Cecil F.  Gilkerson Community Activities Center for an evening of games, crafts, candy and a kids costume contest.

Have a great week making those Culture Connections.
