See some bicycles that kids and grown-ups rode more than 100 ago and find out about the history of “cycling machines” when The Wheelmen roll into the DCM! Founded in Wilmington, the Wheelmen are an international group dedicated to keeping alive the heritage of cycling, promoting the restoration and riding of early cycles (1918 or earlier), and encouraging cycling as part of modern living. Delaware Children’s Museum, May 26th, 11:30 A.M.

The Mikado; or, The Town of Titipu is a comic opera in two acts. It opened on March 14, 1885, in London, where it ran at the Savoy Theatre for 672 performances, which was the second longest run for any work of musical theatre and one of the longest runs of any theatre piece up to that time. The Mikado remains the most frequently performed Gilbert & Sullivan Opera. The Savoy performances feature a full professional orchestra that brings this beautiful music to life. The Saturday night performances at the DuPont Theatre will be a special benefit night and all Orchestra seats will be dedicated to supporting Canine Partners for life. DuPont Theatre, June 1st and June 2nd, 8 P.M. and Longwood Gardens June 29th and June 30th, 8:30 P.M.

Little Shop pf Horrors

Based on the cult classic 1960’s film of the same name, the hit pop-rock musical LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS follows Skid Row floral assistant Seymour, who loves two things: exotic plants and his affable co-worker Audrey. In a freakish turn of events, down-and-out Seymour becomes an overnight celebrity because of his discovery of Audrey II – a tough-talking, R&B-singing strange new plant with an appetite for human flesh and world domination! Clear Space Theater, May 25th & 26th 7 P.M., and May 27th, 3 P.M.
