OUT and ABOUT


Out and About is your guide to upcoming events in and around the Riverbank area.

 

Hutton’s Hamlet in Oakdale will present “Night at the Wax Museum” on Friday and Saturday, July 7 and 8. Six students who have flunked history retake the class in summer school, and set up a new wax museum as a class project. A mysterious incantation from the back of Cleopatra’s bracelet by one of the students brings the wax figures to life and from there it’s a wild and hilarious goose chase. Hutton’s Hamlet Performing Arts Center is at 132 W. G St., Oakdale. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for 12 and under. Call for show times, 209-848-1216.
