The show tells the story of when the Soady clan reunites for the opening day of deer season at the family’s Upper Peninsula camp; 35-year-old Reuben Soady brings with him the infamous reputation of being the oldest Soady in the history of the Soadys never to bag a buck. In a hunting story to beat all hunting stories, “Escanaba in da Moonlight” spins a hilarious tale of humor, horror and heart as Reuben goes to any and all lengths to remove himself from the wrong end of the family record book.

‘Spring Awakening’ presented by Kids Acting Against Cancer

When: Friday and Saturday [8 p.m.]; Sunday [2 p.m.]; also Jan. 20, 24-26

Where: Kentucky Center, MeX Theater, 501 Main St., Louisville

Cost: $18

Winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, “Spring Awakening” sets Frank Wedekind’s original 1891 expressionist play to a moving score of indie, folk, punk-rock and alternative music by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater. In 19th century Germany, the beautiful young Wendla explores her body and asks her mother where babies come from. Elsewhere, the brilliant and fearless young Melchior attempts to educate his friend Moritz — a boy so traumatized by puberty he can’t concentrate on anything. One afternoon in the woods, Wendla and Melchior discover within themselves a desire unlike anything they’ve ever felt. Through the struggles of Melchior, Wendla, Moritz, and the rest of the students, Spring Awakening explores the confusion and desperation that ensue when the onrushing tide of hormones meets the ignorance of children in a repressed society. All of the profits from Kids Acting Against Cancer’s Spring Awakening will be donated to help provide the oncology ward of Kosair Children’s Hospital with both medical equipment and amenities to help the children feel more comfortable as they undergo inpatient treatment.

Penny Sisto exhibit

When: Opening reception at the Parish House at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 2:30 to 5 p.m. Sunday; exhibit runs at the Parish House every Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to noon through Feb. 14

Where: St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 1015 E. Main St., New Albany

Cost: Free

“Art as Healer” is the theme of the third exhibit in St. Paul’s Sacred Art Series. A new exhibit featuring new work by celebrated local artist, Penny Sisto. The title of the show is “Art as Healer.” As part of the reception, Penny will be giving a gallery talk telling the story behind each displayed artwork and describing its impact on her. Everybody loves to be told a story. A life of self-expression through art enables artists to rise above personal circumstances, and in doing so, they help the viewers of their art to experience renewed hope, healing and a deepening of their own spirituality. From a childhood on the Orkney Islands off the northern tip of Scotland, by way of Africa and a commune in the Sierra Foothills of California, Penny has gathered scraps of life and fabrics, weaving them into story-telling quilts. She and her jazz musician husband Dick Sisto have lived in a small cabin they built in the woods of Floyds Knobs for over twenty years. For more information, contact the parish office at 812-944-0413.

Empty Bowls

When: 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday

Where: Activity Center at Providence High School, 707 Providence Way, Clarksville

Cost: Suggested donation of $15 per bowl

The Providence High School Art Club created hundreds of ceramic bowls to be taken home for the suggested donation of $15 per bowl. In exchange, enjoy a simple meal of soup and bread. Keep the handmade, ceramic bowl as a reminder that every day there are bowls that remain empty, and hunger persists. Some of the art students created multiple bowls to contribute to the project. They also earn service hours that they need to graduate. All proceeds go toward fighting hunger in Southern Indiana.
