Evening Shades

5 Best Bets for entertainment this weekend

‘Sense and Sensibility’

When Mrs. Dashwood and her daughters are tossed out of their home by a selfish half-brother, marriage prospects become bleak, and when love — or what looks like love — comes calling for the girls, they are whirled into a tangle of gossip, scandal and unexpected fortune. The show runs through Oct. 28 in the Angus Bowmer Theatre at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland. Showtimes and ticket prices are available at osfashland.org or at 800-219-8161.

Dancing (and Dining) in the Streets

Rock band The Evening Shades will perform from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28, in Middleford Alley in downtown Medford. Follow the music and find menus at nearby tables. Call in to the particular restaurants and food will be delivered to your table. Then dance in the street. Bring nonperishable canned food to donate to ACCESS.
