Monday: You can finally put that annoying fake British accent to good use Monday night. The Charleston Acting Studio is holding auditions for the role of Rita, a working class woman from Liverpool, for their production of Educating Rita. A cockney accent is preferred.

Tuesday: Trident Tech hosts a series of Healthcare Information Sessions. The lectures will shed light on continuing healthcare education programs that can lead to careers currently in high demand.

Wednesday: Fans of mischievous Great Danes will enjoy Starlight Cinema’s screening of Marmaduke. I just can’t imagine what types of shenanigans he’s going to get into this time. Free for kids under 10, the Family Film Series will be screening The Goonies. Coincidentally, my ex-girlfriend kinda looks like a mix between Sloth and Dog the Bounty Hunter.

Thursday: Just a reminder that the Brown Bag Lunch Series continues its weekly run. Lectures held at the Center for Women will provide information on and foster dialogue about current topics that affect women.

Friday: Bring the kids out to the Cooper School Children’s Music Concert. Hazel Ketchum will be playing your kids’ favorite tunes on banjo, guitar, and drums.

Saturday: That birthmark that looks a bit like Gary Busey might not be such an innocent sploch. Get it checked out by professionals at the MUSC sponsored Free Skin Screenings. Splash Zone water park will host the MUSC Mobile Health Unit, where doctors will be on hand to check potentially dangerous skin spots.  

Sunday: Celebrate the Clay Cottage and Art Studio Grand Opening with an afternoon of art projects, demonstrations, and family-friendly activities. Alto singer Lindsay Welch presents a program comprised of sacred, musical theater, jazz, and a little Patsy Cline. The performance is part of the continuing Summer at St. John’s Concert Series. Las Olas Surf Shop screens Kai Neville’s new film project, Lost Atlas.

Unfortunately, this is the last weekend of freedom for Charleston County School District students. To celebrate, there will be a free festival chocked full of food, music, and family fun. Bring the family out to the First Day Festival for one last day of fun and relaxation before the start of the new school year.
