Heat makes people do crazy things ...

Like riding a motorcycle on Highway 16 in shorts, T-shirt and Birkenstocks.

5 Things To Do: Tuesday

MICHAEL SWAN: TUESDAY, JUNE 30, 2009 >>>

5-Things-630 1. Pretty Boy Sean's Ha Ha Tuesday Pre-Birthday Comedy Bash, hosted by Ralph Porter, with guest comics James Inman and Dan Rock begins at 8 p.m. inside Jazzbones.

2. Check out the work of nature shutterbug Keith Lazelle who snagged 14 beautiful shots of the Hoh River ecosystem in the Olympic National Park. They're on display at the Washington State History Museum.

3. Jewelry artist Nancy Worden incorporates non-traditional materials such as seed pods and plastic hair curlers into her jewelry to tell a story. That's right, she explores social and political issues in her exhibit, Loud Bones, which shows at the Tacoma Art Museum.

4. Country singer Hannah Weeks performs in Gig Harbor's Skansie Brothers Park at 6:30 p.m. as park of the city's free Summer Sounds at Skansie series.

5. Live jazz every Tuesday beginning at 9 p.m. at The New Frontier Lounge. Important things to know: $2 wells, $4 martinis and no cover. Righteous.

Weekend stage picks

STEVE DUNKELBERGER: THEATER THURSDAY >>>

Bigger Than Life
Encore! Youth Theater is presenting Bigger Than Life, a play about American folktales and legends presented by circus master P.T. Barnum. The show tells the tale of when P.T. Barnum arrives in town with his traveling troupe of circus performers only to have the mayor question Barnum’s motives.  So the master showman agrees to give audience a sample of his act. What follows is knee-slappin', rip-roarin' fun, as some of the best loved characters in American folklore come to life. As Barnum might say, prepare to be amused, amazed, astounded, edified and infinitely entertained.
[Encore! Theater, July 19 2:30 and 5:30 p.m., $5, 6615 38th Ave. N.W., Gig Harbor, 253.858.2282]

Children of Eden
Capital Playhouse’s production of Children of Eden opens today. It’s an inspirational two-act musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and is based on the Book of Genesis reenacting the story of Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel and Noah during the great flood that destroyed the world. While using the Bible as a plot source, it freely deviates in many details, and is a story of parents and children. With a modern, nearly through composed score, this show expresses beautiful music and clever storytelling. Troy Arnold Fisher directs and musically directs this large, brilliant ensemble cast and features several talented returning Capital Playhouse stars including Ryan Tunheim and Jocelyn O’Keefe as Adam and Eve and Eddie Carroll and Gabrielle Guilfoil as Noah and Mama Noah. The cast is backed by an amazing costume plot by resident costume designer, Tom C. Hudson. The animals of the arc are guaranteed to astound audiences.
[KJM Center, 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Sunday, 2 p.m. Sunday, $10-$15, South Puget Sound Community College, 2011 Mottman Road, Olympia, 360.943.2744]

Learn about life in the Pacific Northwest when the land was young and there were only three latte stands on every block. Richard W. Blumenthal will present stories from the journals of John Meares, Jose Norvalz, Manuel Quimper, Francisco de Eliza and Alcala Galiano/Cayetano Valdez. George Vancouver's voyage is also included with a description of the area and its people by Peter Puget and others in this program at Historic Fort Steilacoom.
