In 1989, three friends finished their fan adaptation of the 1981 classic, Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark. After six years of filming, it became a cult classic as the fan-made replica of the blockbuster was filmed shot-for-shot (almost). Raiders! follows the original filmmakers’ journey as they film the last of the adaptation two decades later. For more information, visit www.charlottefilmsociety.com. $5-$10.

LaCa Projects proudly presents Repetitions, a solo exhibition featuring works by Argentine artist Santiago Quesnel. This is Quesnel’s second solo show at LaCa Projects. Repetitions is a name that honors Quesnel’s intention to create mutations and variations of the same mental image, resulting in an examination of non-traditional landscapes generated from the intersection of record, experience, and memory. While the ethereal scenes might initially appear conventional, a discovery occurs—a burst of color in an otherwise subdued palette, an object that seems out of place, or subtle traces of human inhabitance, or perhaps, interference.

A tribute from Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor, Leading Ladies) to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s, The Fox on the Fairway takes audiences on a hilarious romp which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it's a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers' classics. A charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man's eternal love affair with... golf. $15-29https://www.davidsoncommunityplayers.org/
