Have you ever wanted to dress-up with shirt or pants worn backwards, or inside out; or wear mismatched socks or shoes?  The April 1, First Friday: “Fools’ Day Merriment” is the place to wear these items.  You are invited to wear crazy hats and clothes, to celebrate April Fools’ Day.  The sillier you dress, the better. The festivities will run from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Durant Arts Center 1605 Cameron St.

The Alexandria Singers make you smile with their musical selections and merriment.  Have you ever wanted to learn how to juggle?  Liam Lally, an Alexandria juggler will be on hand to teach you.  Learn how to make a paper hat, or plan to get our face painted. You may want to practice you joke-telling before attending, because the evening will conclude with an audience participation joke-a-thon. The “Fools’ Day Merriment” is just what the doctor ordered, an evening of laughter, jokes, pranks and pure joy!

A “meet and greet” begins at 6 p.m.  Light refreshments will be on hand, complements of the Office of the Arts.  Festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. Advance per person reservations: $5 residents; $10 nonresidents.  At door: $10 residents; $15 nonresidents.   No experience is necessary.  Children must be accompanied by one adult.
