Weekend Entertainment | A Frenzy of Rock and Some Funny Moms

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Spring is finally in the air and just in the nick of time.

Because the first big outdoor event of the season – Federal Frenzy rock festival – is Saturday.

But serving as a warm-up of sorts for Federal Frenzy is today’s Unite for Ukraine, featuring more than a dozen of the region’s best bands on multiple stages at West Side Bowl. Proceeds benefit humanitarian relief efforts for war-town Ukraine. To learn more and see the schedule, click HERE.

Mahoning Valley theater veteran Terry Shears has written a play that is based on his own life. You can catch “People Along the Way” this weekend and next in the Moyer Room of the Youngstown Playhouse. Click HERE.

With Mother’s Day less than three weeks away, it’s a perfect time for the red-hot My Name Is Not Mom comedy trio to come to town. The three comedians – each a mom – has been bringing big laughs and knowing chuckles to women (and men) across the country since it formed last year. The act comes to Packard Music Hall on Saturday.

Federal Frenzy, the daylong party on the streets of downtown Youngstown, is returning after a two-year hiatus, and for once, the weather will cooperate. To learn more, Click HERE.

The Dana School of Music at Youngstown State University will present its annual opera this weekend. “L’amico Fritz” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday in Spotlight Theater, inside Bliss Hall. Click HERE.

Rust Belt Theater will bring back its musical spoof, “The Rockin’ Horribles Audience Participation Show.” Performances are Friday and Saturday this weekend and next. If you think this original comedy bears a resemblance to another “Rocky Horror” show, it’s all in your head. Click HERE.
