THREE THINGS TO DO: Naked Stage group returns to Newton theatre with ‘Barefoot in the Park’

Also this week: Sound Thinking at Surrey Art Gallery, cancer fundraiser at Elements Casino

Naked Stage Productions Society's Ed Milaney (artistic director)

1. Surrey’s newest theatre company, Naked Stage Productions Society, stages its second play of the season, Neil Simon’s “Barefoot in the Park,” on Nov. 18 and 19 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 20 at 2 p.m. at the Newton Cultural Centre, 13530 72 Ave. The shows are done in a readers format – that is, no costumes or props, just actors using their voices and facial expressions to tell the story. In “Barefoot in the Park,” Corie and Paul Bratter are a newlywed couple. During the course of four days, the couple learns to live together while facing the usual daily ups-and-downs. Tickets for the show are $15 at the door and at Brownpapertickets.com, or visit Nakedstage.net.

2. Surrey Art Gallery (13750 88th Ave.) is hosting its annual Sound Thinking Symposium on Saturday, Nov. 19 from 1:30-4 p.m. Explore the sound of art and objects with artists Lee Hutzulak, Jay Bundy Johnson, Brady Marks and DB Boyko for Resonant Things: Sound and Objecthood on Canada’s West Coast. Along with presentations, this event features a sound performance called “Contactopus” by Lee Hutzulak and Dave Leith that uses re-purposed domestic objects, rudimentary handmade instruments and carefully curated materials. Admission is free. Look for details at Surrey.ca/artgallery, or call 604-501-5566.

3. At Elements Casino in Cloverdale, a “Double Down Against Cancer” event on Friday (Nov. 18, from 6 p.m. to midnight) will raise money for Canadian Cancer Society. Expect a night of black jack, horse racing, live music, dancing and more for $60 per person, as part of an effort to fund pediatric cancer research. Visit Bc.cancer.ca or call 604-533-1816.
