1)    Dead Men’s Cell Phone – This is a wildly imaginative new comedy by playwright Sarah Ruhl, who authored last season’s smash In The Next Room (or The Vibrator Play) explores what a person might do if she answered a Dead Man’s Cell Phone and kept answering it. Performances are Wednesday through Sunday until March 11th at the Herberger Theater Center. There will also be a post-show discussion following the Sunday, 3/4 performance.

2)    Spring Butterfly Exhibit- Take a stroll through the beautiful Marshall Butterfly Pavilion at the Desert Botanical Garden and find yourself surrounded with hundreds of fluttering butterflies.

Children under three free with paid Garden admission.
