Lecture: “Living on the Wind” with Scott Weidensaul

Theater: The Cradle Will Rock
“The Cradle Will Rock” made history in 1937 by becoming the first musical shut down by the federal government due to fear that society would revolt. This play, written by Marc Blitzstein, criticizes capitalism and corruption, while honoring those struggling to survive. Bold, powerful and unapologetic, this musical is bound to cause a stir.
Sept. 29-Oct. 8 at Iron Crow Theatre, tickets required, ironcrowtheatre.org/

Comedy: Bill Engvall

Theater: Julius Caesar
A classic historical political thriller, Julius Caesar examines the conflicts faced by Brutus leading up to his fateful role in the Roman dictator Caesar’s assassination. Before he was the famous conspirator, after all, he was a statesman plagued by heavy dilemmas of patriotism and honor. And when it comes to exploring dilemmas of the human heart, there’s no one like the Bard to show us how it’s done. A tale of moral ambiguity, patriotism, loyalty, and ambition, this powerful classic will be sure to appease anyone with an appetite for Shakespeare this fall. September 29 through October 29 at the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company. Tickets $16-$50. 410-244-8570. chesapeakeshakespeare.com


Festival: Harvest Day 
When a lot of people think of fall, they think of the food: apple cider, pumpkin ice cream, freshly harvested corn. As it turns out, you can find all of these things and more at the community-friendly Harvest Day event at the Hampton National Historic Site. Past iterations of Harvest Day have even included period-themed musical performances featuring fiddles and banjos, as well as blacksmith and weaving demonstrations. The Hampton National Historic Site is beautiful year-round, but there’s no time like autumn to really get into the old-fashioned spirit.
October 1 at Hampton National Historic Site. Tickets required. nps.gov

Fitness: 9/11 Heroes Run
The first-ever 9/11 Heroes Run will be held to commemorate and honor the first responders and those who lost their lives in the tragic 2001 attack.
