If you're interested in finding out what events are happening on campus and the surrounding area, then this might be the post for you. In terms of performing arts, Princeton's famous Triangle Club performs the musical-comedy "Spy School Musical" at McCarter Theatre at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10 and Saturday, Nov.11, with an additional matinee performance at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 12. However, if you feel like watching some dancing, the all-female contemporary dance group, eXpressions, is performing their show "FUNHOUSE" in the Frist Theater on Friday, Nov. 10 at 6:30 p.m., and twice on Saturday, Nov. 11 at 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. All tickets can be bought at the physical Frist Ticket Office or online, and students can get tickets to various shows for a reduced rate. Also, students are given two free tickets per school year for any events that are "student events eligible."

Perhaps you're leaning towards more visual stimulation? Be sure to check out the University Art Museum for a range of collections and exhibits, such as: "Making History Visible: Of American Myths and National Heroes," "Hold: A Meditation on Black Aesthetics," and "Rouge: Michael Kenna." There are also free "Highlight Tours" on both Saturday, Nov. 11 and Sunday, Nov. 12, from 1- 2 p.m. where you can receive a guided tour of the Museum's premier collections "from antiquity to contemporary."

These are only a small fraction of all the various events happening in and around Princeton, so if you'd like to get a full list of the events, you can visit the Frist Ticketing Office website, the Princeton University Art Museum website, as well as the McCarter Theatre website. Princeton has so many worthwhile events. I encourage you to take advantage of them!
