Time for some of the most fun and interesting stuff to do today and tomorrow — hurriedly assembled in no particular order of importance. (Hey, it's Saturday. I have a life too, friends.)

Attend a performance of Upon This Rock: The Magdalene Speaks by multiple Best Actress winner Roxanne Fay. Her play brings to life the woman whose presence in the New Testament is "tantalizingly ambiguous." 

You can't beat Tampa Bay theater for a great way to spend a weekend evening or afternoon. It's the final weekend of Jobsite Theater's All New People and I highly recommend it for anyone who has a sense of humor and repressed angst — Jack Holloway turns in my favorite male performance of the year so far, and the rest of the cast is great too. True West, the seminal Sam Shephard play, runs this weekend only at Studio@620.

Saturday is your last chance to see the Sea Lion Splash at

Lowry Park Zoo. Final show at 3:45 p.m. 

Pop in the Big Bang Burlesque: A Show to Remember — an event presented by St. Petersburg Nights Russian Restaurant that's actually taking place at the State Theatre.

If you're interested in local media, there's a cool new studio in Tampa hosting the premiere of a locally produced web series, which is planning on a film later this year too. Attend the The Grey Room Saga: I Am Sin Launch Party at Tampa's new 4D Studios.

Budding filmmakers, Venture Compound is gearing up for its Florida Free Film Fest and wants to help you make a movie to submit to the annual festival at its free event tonight. How to Make a Kick Ass Movie — St. Pete Free School Class features Leigh Armstrong and Timothy Blaszka, who will provide tips and tricks to make a better film, from DIY special effects to making a camera stabilizer for under $20.

The Grecian Urns are reuniting for a show in St. Pete tonight. Love that soul-satifying band of young cuties and many of you out there do too. ... And the show at Green Bench is free! Read Leilani Polk's feature for more details.

2001: A Space Odyssey, the film that set a new standard for sci-fi and cinematic storytelling, launches another selection of Tampa Theatre Summer Classics Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. The series has some of my personal favorites: To Kill A Mockingbird, Saturday Night Fever, Blazing Saddles, and I look forward to (finally) seeing Lawrence of Arabia — on the big screen in Tampa's most historic and lovely cinema palace.

This one's for a good cause: Disco in Pair O’ Dice, a dance party fundraiser for the Animal Coalition of Tampa, which was burned down in a senseless act of arson on April 19.
