Welcome to spring! What are some things I love about Spring? March Madness, movies and marshmallow bunnies! Take a minute this weekend to have some of all three: make sure you take in at least one of the last Elite Eight Men’s Basketball Games. The Hunger Games is the biggest movie draw this weekend (and, since it is based on a book, a Librarian’s favorite). Finally, learn how to make marshmallows (not quite bunnies, but once you learn how, just be creative!). Enjoy the first weekend of Spring!
If you weren’t able to get tickets to the now-sold-out Vagina Monologues, there are still other things to do this weekend in Jacksonville!

Twentieth Century Auditions
What: The Hecht-MacArthur comedy is set in the observation car of the Twentieth Century Limited, traveling from Chicago to New York’s Grand Central Terminal. Aboard the luxury train are egomaniacal theatre producer Oscar Jaffe, desperately in need of a hit, and his former paramour and protégé, temperamental actress Lily Garland (born Mildred Plotka), who abandoned him for a Hollywood career. Oscar is determined to sign her for his new show, and Lily is just as determined to ignore his advances, both professional and personal. AUDITIONS WILL BE COLD READINGS FROM THE SCRIPT.
When: Saturday, 3/3/12 at 1:00 PM
