5 THINGS: Artists Wanted, The Shining and Farmers

It’s the last weekend before Halloween – ooo scary!

Here are the (more than) Five Things for Friday, October 26, 2012:

Need help with your book? The “bring your book to life” program is at 9 a.m. near Narragansett Town Beach. Make sure you contact Lisa Tener ahead of time.

Get some fresh corn. The Goddard State Park farmers’ market is at 9 a.m.

“A pox o’ your throat, you bawling, blasphemous, incharitable dog!” – The Bard. The Contemporary Theater Company puts on The Tempest tonight. Tickets are $20, and the show is at 7 p.m.

“Wendy? Darling? Light, of my life. I’m not gonna hurt ya. I’m just going to bash your brains in.” – Stephen King, The Shining. Here are today’s scary events:

  • The Haunted Courthouse takes over the Courthouse Center for the Arts at 6 p.m. Admission is $10.
  • Dracula: The Vampire Original plays at 8 p.m. at the Courthouse Center for the Arts. Tickets are $25.
  • The Pettaquamscutt Historical Society presents “The Haunts of Little Rest Hill” at 9:30 p.m. The cost is $15.

Oh no! Maybe there seriously aren’t that many events today, given that it’s Book-on-the-Head Day. As a result, our events calendar for today is a bit barren. If you’re having an event, please let us know in the comments. Also, make sure it isn’t left out in the future – Submit it via this link (as long as you’re logged into your Patch account).

“We don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents.” – Bob Ross. The Courthouse Center for the Arts is looking for art submissions for a December show. For more information, click here.

Sign up for our daily newsletter! Hey, I realize we have a lot of neat features and knick-knacks on the site, so it can be confusing to keep up with it all. Want just one simple, easy to read daily digest? Sign up for our e-mail newsletter here then. It comes out between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. roughly, every single day of the week. Amazing, I know!

Not to be confused with something from Star Trek: The Next Generation. On this day in 1640, the Treaty of Ripon was signed, restoring peace between England and Scotland.

As you wish. Happy 50th birthday to Cary Elwes! You were the man in The Princess Bride and Robin Hood: Men In Tights.
