Red zone. Get to know the musical world’s other red-headed orphan at Village Theatre this month. Eleven-year-old Anne Shirley (her hair is auburn, thank you) arrives in the little town of Avonlea to live with siblings Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, and even though she’s not quite what they expected, she wins them — and everyone else — over with her spirited personality. Anne of Green Gables runs Nov. 10–Jan. 2 at Francis J. Gaudette Theatre, 303 Front St. N., Issaquah. Tickets are $20–$60; call 425-392-2202 or visit villagetheatre.org to purchase.
Zoo’s calling. Does your kid dream of being a zookeeper? Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium throws a party with a purpose on Saturday, Nov. 13, when students can meet with zoo staff to learn about their careers and how they got started. Admission for participating students in grades 6 and higher is free.5400 N. Pearl St., Tacoma. Schedule: pdza.org.
Like disco lemonade. Baby Loves Disco fans, are you still out there? The dearly departed family dance party is back for one day only as part of the national Lemonade Tour, and all the good stuff is still there. Shake your groove thangs to tunes from the ’70s and ’80s, get your faces painted, do crafts, and ( if you’re a non-driving adult) spring for a vodka tonic from the cash bar. Baby Loves Disco happens on Sunday, Nov. 14, noon–3 p.m. at Neumos, 925 E. Pike St., Seattle. The party is for kids ages 6 months to 7 years old and their families, and all walkers must have a ticket. Get your tickets (family $60) at the door or online at babylovesdisco.com/events.classic.com
