Three Things to Do This Week (Surrey and Delta, for Sept. 24)

Events at Bell Performing Arts Centre, Surrey Arts Centre and on 137th Street in Newton

The touring 'Bubble Guppies Live” show hits Surrey on Saturday

1. Hey kids! Finned characters Molly and Gil come to life in “Bubble Guppies Live,” a Nickelodeon/Koba Entertainment stage show starring the aquatic duo, from the hit CG-animated TV series. The touring production comes to Surrey’s Bell Performing Arts Centre on Saturday (Sept. 26) for a pair of show times, at 1 and 4 p.m. Expect lots of singing, dancing, comedy and audience participation; the script has The Bubble Guppies “getting ready to rock n’ roll with some totally fin-tastic tunes, but when a special band member goes missing, the show can’t go on.” Visit BubbleGuppiesOnTour.com.

2. A range of free activities Saturday (Sept. 26) at Surrey Arts Centre celebrate Canada’s sixth annual Culture Days, which runs from Friday to Sunday at a wide variety of venues. At Bear Creek Park, the action includes hip-hop dance workshops, Diwali-style diya painting, sari tying and mehndi, drop-in mosaic painting with Mandeep Wirk, and more. Elsewhere in Surrey, glassblower Robert Gary Parkes explains his craft at his Loafing Shed studio, and a “Welcome to City Centre Block Party” is set for Friday (Sept. 25) at Surrey City Centre Plaza from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. For more details, search Bc.culturedays.ca.

3. Along 137th Street in Newton, check out “Window Dressing: Cabinets of Curiosity,” an art exhibit installed in vacant storefront windows by the South Surrey-based Z-inc collective. View paintings, drawings, sculpture, video and more by artists including Elizabeth Carefoot, Jennifer Clark, Willa Downing, Lesley Garratt, Reuben Kambeitz, Cora Li-Leger, Don Li-Leger, Claire Moore and Deb Putman.
