Lafayette-West Lafayette Weekend Update! Looking for a fun Indiana weekend getaway? Or do you live in this area and are looking for entertainment close by? Check out the endless possibilities for fun events happening this upcoming weekend in or near Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana

Have you ever wished that you could travel back in time? This weekend, your wish could be granted at The Farm at Prophetstown! Visit the Farm on Saturday, June 2nd, for a chance to step back into the 1920’s. This 1920’s Recreation on the Farm goes from 10AM to 4PM. When farm families completed their daily chores, leisure time in the evening might include participation in group games of chance and skill. Board and card games were popular along with adaptations of outdoor games like croquet and bowling. Visit the Gibson Farmhouse and try your luck at 1920s indoor leisure diversions.

Step into a whole other time that evening with the One Size Fits All Improv comedy show. If you’re a fan of the classic Star Wars series, you won’t want to miss this unique show. A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away…no one ever expected this! One Size Fits All is taking the universe of space battles and messed up families, and mixing it with what this team does best — IMPROV. Come experience a show like you’ve never seen before. They’ll recreate the original Star Wars movie, but without a script, and throw in your suggestions, your ideas and even your dialogue. May the Force be with you at this awesome and hilarious show that is out of this galaxy. Two shows on Saturday, June 2 — a family friendly show at 6:30PM (bring the kids). And a 17 and older show at 9PM. You can purchase your tickets here!

Macbeth, the classic tale of the rise and fall of a Scottish warrior with ambitions to be king, prodded onward by his calculating and manipulative wife is being featured this weekend, February 20-22 at the Nancy T. Hansen Theatre at Purdue University. Full of witches, ghosts, and dark and bloody deeds, Macbeth is one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays, exciting and fast-paced, the perfect introduction to the brilliance of the world’s greatest playwright. Do not miss watching this classic play performed by our very own Purdue University students.

One Size Fits All Comedy Improv is back this weekend at two different locations in Lafayette! Do not miss a night of laughter February 20 at Lafayette Brewing Company and February 21 at the Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The players flex their comedic muscles for laughs as they make up scenes, games, and songs right on the spot based on suggestions from you: the lovely and well-dressed audience. Ever wanted to see Mr. T sing a duet with a yeti at the Taj Mahal? You just might get your chance – and … there is always a chance you might get pulled up on stage! Much like fragile and delicate snowflakes, no two shows are ever alike – because they are all made up on the spot based on audience suggestions! Come be a part of the fun at their next show!
