The delightful screwball comedy about romance and political satire, “Born Yesterday,” will hit the Drama Dock boards for two weekends of performances beginning Friday at the new Vashon High School theater.
Several arts events will provide entertainment for islanders and guests this weekend.
The Pretty Good Opry — Vashon’s twist on an old-time country music variety show — is all about mixing comedy and music in three acts delivered in the format of a bygone country music radio show.
Most galleries will be open from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday.
Three rocking mostly string bands will get people dancing Sunday when two island groups, RISK and RISK Jr., open for the Seattle fiddle-driven trio, The Onlies. This is a benefit performance for the RISK scholarship fund, which supports music lessons and instrument rentals for low-income children.
Vashon High School students Maya Krah and Maria Gilmour of Two Dime Icebox, plus Kate Atwell & Mallory Breen, will open the show for the Seattle acoustic indie-pop Lucy Horton Band at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Blue Heron

If you’ve ever paid a visit to Seattle’s Volunteer Park, then you’ve probably caught a glimpse of the Space Needle through the hole in Isamu Noguchi’s doughnut-shaped onyx sculpture, “Black Sun.”
Vashon Allied Arts will bring the classical sound of the trumpet with piano accompaniment to the Blue Heron at 4 p.m. Sunday with a concert by Raymond Deleon.
Those who have an interest in avian life on Vashon have probably heard of the islander with a reputation as a regional bird expert who happens to share his last name with a bird: Ed Swan. Swan will talk about the new edition of his book on local birds, “The Birds of Vashon Island” at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 5, at the Vashon Bookshop.
Grab your boa and a gown from Granny’s or a top hat and tails and head out to the Vashon Theatre to walk the red carpet. It’s time once again for the Vashon Oscar Night party sponsored by the Vashon Film Society. The festivities will begin 4 p.m. Sunday at the Vashon Theatre.
Get ready for rocking entertainment when Captain Dick & The Portholes take the stage 8:30 p.m. Friday at the Red Bike
