Are you looking for something fun to do next weekend? Join The Welcoming Committee when they head back to the Oberon Theater for a takeover of The Donkey Show.
Unfamiliar with The Donkey Show? It is a disco adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and is a long-running glitter-filled show hosted at the Oberon Theater in Harvard Square. The show is an absolute blast. Sergio and I joined TWC back in 2013 and I still smile when I think about all the fun we had. This annual TWC event always sells out so take advantage of their limited number of discounted tickets ($5 off the public price). For more information about the program and how to get your discounted tickets, visit TWC’s event page, Donkey Show Takeover.
Out to Climb
The Welcoming Committee is taking over Somerville’s own Brooklyn Boulders monthly LGBTQ Out to Climb event. Join them for a fun night out. Although I’m sure many of you have them, TWC assured me that there is no need for you to bring your favorite harness. Your ticket (which is just $19) includes admission, rental equipment – harness and shoes – climbing orientation and admittance to their Pride Celebration.
