Movie night at the festival
On Friday, the Laguna Beach Film Society is hosting a screening of the music documentary "The Mighty Uke." The documentary chronicles the widespread appreciation of the ukulele across music genres, from Hawaiian to punk rock. The film starts at 7 p.m. at the Forum Theatre at the Festival of the Arts, 606 Laguna Canyon Road. Tickets go on sale at 6:45 p.m.
The sounds of Shakespeare
On Sunday, locals can check out the second performance of "Shakespeare's Fool." The famed playwright's speeches are set to a score resulting in a one-of-a-kind musical act. British singer-songwriter Jason Feddy and local John Gardiner make up the band. They played their first show Sunday.
"Shakespeare can seem difficult, but something about singing the words, stretching them out with a good, simple tune makes them immediately reach everyone," Feddy said in a statement. "They could've been written yesterday. Our goal is to present the songs and speeches in ways that are entertaining, understandable and meaningful to any modern audience — whether they know Shakespeare's work or not."
