"Romeo and Juliet" is perhaps Shakespeare’s most famous play, a tragedy of star-crossed lovers who marry in secret in spite of their feuding families. Each actor plays multiple roles in the production, and the performances feature live music. For details, visit www.pcshakespeare.com.

Tickets are $12 for adults, and $6 for students and senior citizens, and are available by calling the Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company at 850-0916.

(2) Adopt-a-Beach cleanup day at Grand Haven State Park on Saturday morning. Volunteers are needed. Join the Lake Michigan Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation and the Alliance for the Great Lakes — more hands make light work! Meet at the beach concession at 10 a.m. Refreshments will be served after the event.

To register, visit www.greatlakesadopt.org; or call the Alliance's Jamie Cross at 850-0745, ext. 12.

(3) Garden Fest at Loutit District Library from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. This is a family gardening event with hands-on activities to learn about food and nutrition.

It will take place in the library's program rooms A and B (lower level). This is a free community event, with raffle money benefiting the local United Way and Spread the Music Foundation. Other activities will include information and demonstrations of Tower Gardens, a Zumba class from 10-11:30 a.m. (suggested donation of $5), nutritional information, prizes for the family and music by Lew Russ.
