Three things to do this week (Surrey, White Rock, Delta)

1. "Grim and Fischer" at Centre Stage: A tale about the Grim Reaper and a stubborn senior citizen is at the heart of Grim and Fischer, a Wonderheads production staged Friday evening (March 27, 8 p.m.) at Centre Stage, Surrey City Hall. The show, which has been described as "live-action Pixar," involves masked characters who use gestures and body language to communicate, with the help of a dramatic soundtrack. For a show video, see Wonderheads.com/grim-and-fischer; for show tickets ($28), call 604-501-5566. SEE SHOW VIDEO BELOW.

2. "March Madness" wrestling in Cloverdale: Allstar Wrestling returns to the fairgrounds’ Alice McKay Building Saturday night (March 28) with a "March Madness" gathering of grapplers, including a triple-tag-team title bout and a Grudge Match pitting Azeem The Dream against Disco Fury. The bell rings at 8 p.m.; event info and tickets at allstar-wrestling.com and 604-710-0872.

3. Thursday Artist Talk at Surrey Art Gallery: Langleyite Suzanne Erickson shows how she incorporates gourds in her artistic adventures during the monthly event, 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 2 at Surrey Art Gallery, Bear Creek Park. She’s in love with gourds — "not the ones you see in the supermarket. The ones I love are hard-shelled gourds. They come in many shapes, sizes and colours, and can be made into useful and beautiful works of art." For more details, call 604-501-5566 or visit Surrey.ca/artgallery.
