Cary, NC — Here are a few highlights from the CaryCitizen Calendar for the weekend of March 21-23, 2014.

Two great shows in Dntn Cary on Friday

Mel Melton & the Wicked Mojos – 7:30 @ The Cary Theater, 122 E Chatham St,  Cary. Mel describes the WMs as a “Zydeco/Cajun flavored blues band.” Flavor is an interesting choice of words, because Mel is also a chef and owner of Papa Mojo’s up NC 55, right over the border in Durham.

The Fantasticks – 7:30 Cary Arts Center, 101 Dry Av., Cary. The Fantasticks has been touring for 50 plus years, and for good reason: catchy story, universal theme, memorable music. The Nebraska Touring Theater Company brings this classic to Cary Arts, with a little twist: Steampunk. Same story and music, new styling and staging. About the theater company:

“Since its inception in 1975, the Nebraska Theatre Caravan has produced 90 fully mounted productions, many of which were new works, and has played to 160 Nebraska communities and numerous others across the nation. To date, the national tour of A Christmas Carol has performed in over 650 cities in 49 states and 4 Canadian provinces.” – Nebraska Touring Theater Company

Coach D 5K – 9 AM Booth Amphitheatre – From the Calendar: “The Coach D 5k is held each year to raise money for the Gene Daniels Memorial Scholarship Fund. The race is a partnership between Apex High School, Panther Creek High School, Salem Middle School, and Apex Sunrise Rotary. Register here:”

Kite Festival – 1-3 PM, Bond Park. Remarkably enough, the weather forecast is for 76° and sunny on Saturday. Maybe we’ve seen the last of this winter of our early dismissal. What better way to celebrate than a kite festival on the first sunny Saturday of spring?  More info: Kite Festival.

A Fifth of Blues – 9:30 PM, Doherty’s. If Mel Melton and the Mojos don’t satisfy your craving for the blues (or you are otherwise indisposed), get your fix on Saturday night. A Fifth of Blues has a spring full of festivals and door-charge shows, but Saturday night at Doherty’s is no cover. Good service and good food. Corner of Davis & High House in Cornerstone.

Also Saturday night, A Ceilidh at The Cary (sold out, last we heard), King David presented by The Concert Singers of Cary plus half a dozen intriguing events.
