This calendar is the place to find fun events happening throughout Pierce County including Tacoma, Puyallup, , Lakewood and beyond.
A Plant Sale to benefit the Metro Parks’ Rose Gardens at the Point Defiance Pagoda.
Sponsored by the Tacoma Rose Society, the sale will feature roses grown by Metro Parks’ staff and Tacoma Rose Society members, as well as roses donated by several local nurseries. Other plants and an eclectic mix of garden treasures will also be for sale.
The Mud Run is a family friendly 2-mile event that takes participants off the city streets and sidewalks and onto local trails. This event will turn your morning of trail running into a dirty, dusty, sloppy good time. The course is designed for dirt-tromping, mud-loving children and adults as well as fastidious folks who plan to puddle-jump and keep their feet dry.
Obstacles include fire jumping, belly crawling, wire leaping, log climbing and mud tromping. All obstacles are optional.
Spring marks the beginning of hundreds of tiny kittens arriving at The Humane Society for Tacoma and Pierce County. In anticipation of the incoming litters, the Society is throwing its fourth annual Kitten Shower open house. In 2017 our Foster Care volunteers cared for 1,800 cats and kittens to ensure they were healthy and ready for adoption. Last year’s Kitten Shower event equipped foster volunteers with the supplies they needed to care for these fragile lives.
You can donate to the program in advance of the event by utilizing the Society’s Amazon Wish List (https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/24JVWP1RDEWEW?&sort=default) or by making a cash donation at www.thehumanesociety.org.
Donations can also be dropped off at the open house itself, where attendees can cuddle kittens, take a picture with a Society kitten at the photo booth,
tour the new Foster Care and Cattery areas, participate in a craft activity, enjoy light refreshments, mingle with foster volunteers and Society staff, and sign-up to foster themselves.

It seems especially fitting that the first rock opera, created as a concept album at the end of the turbulent ’60s, should have at its center a social and political rebel. Jesus’ meteor-like rise in renown provides, as the title suggests, a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship. As his radical teachings are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge, and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, Jesus Christ Superstar illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.
There will be a special “Pay What You Can” performance on Thursday, March 22, 2018. Tickets for that performance will be available beginning Wednesday, March 14, 2018 in person or over the phone.
From the darkest corners of reality to the land of the unexplained, Impro Theatre’s “Twilight Zone UnScripted” is a completely improvised show in the style of classic 60’s sci-fi television shows. Enter a dimension of pure imagination as the company starts with audience suggestions and creates new and completely improvised episodes at every performance.
