Porcupine Mountains Wilderness Park - Lantern-lit Ski and Snowshoe Hike

Outdoor
06:00 PM To 09:00 PM
Location: Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park, Silver City
Nearly 80 old-fashioned kerosene lanterns will illuminate a 1-mile trail for a unique and memorable experience. The ski trail is track-set for classic skiers, while snowshoers can make their own trail adjacent to the lighted loop. Stop about halfway around the loop at the warming shelter, where the park naturalist will have a campfire going and provide some refreshments. The ski trail has an "easy" difficulty rating; however, skiing or snowshoeing at night is always a challenge. The lanterns are on the Superior Trail immediately across the street from the ski hill entrance.

"I Hate Hamlet" at Theatre North

Arts &Theater
07:00 PM
Location: Theatre North, Ironwood
Directed by: Heidi Brown A young and successful television actor relocates to New York, where he rents a marvelous, gothic apartment. With his television career in limbo, the actor is offered the opportunity to play Hamlet onstage, but there's one problem: He hates Hamlet. His dilemma deepens with the entrance of John Barrymore's ghost, who arrives intoxicated and in full costume to the apartment that once was his. The contrast between the two actors, the towering, dissipated Barrymore whose Hamlet was the greatest of his time, and Andrew Rally, hot young television star, leads to a wildly funny duel over women, art, success, duty, television, and yes, the apartment. "…fast-mouthed and funny…It has the old-fashioned Broadway virtues of brightness without pretensions and sentimentality without morals." —Village Voice. "…unapologetically silly and at times hilarious…affectionately amusing about the theatre…" —NY Times. --- Quoted from Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
