Event calendar

Babysitting class

Redmond Area Park and Recreation District partners with the American Red Cross to offer When I’m In Charge, a 2 ½- hour course that prepares your child to respond safely to a variety of situations when direct parent supervision is unavailable. Participants will role play answering phones and door situations, discuss gun and internet safety, and discuss personal safety and first aid situations. This is a very popular class for ages 8 to 11 so sign up early to reserve your spot. Course will be held 1-3:30 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 6. For additional questions or to register visit www.raprd.org or call 541-548-7275.

Performing arts space

Bend Performing Arts Center has announced it will begin producing in its brand new performance space. Dubbed “The Balcony Scene,” this space will feature local community actors in an intimate cafĂ© style setting. The space will be used to present shorter, edgier, more sophisticated material aimed at audiences seeking a different theatrical experience. Ticketed at $10, the evening also offers the opportunity for budget conscious theatre goers to experience live theatre at a reasonable price. The center’s first production in The Balcony Scene will be a new one-act play titled “NERVE” by Adam Szymkowicz, in its Northwest premiere. “Nerve” is a twisted tale of Internet love that follows a couple on their first “live” date after meeting each other online. One secret after another is revealed as we peek in on their hilarious and peculiar journey into love, out of love, and back again. Each evening opens with live music. Local singer-songwriter Rod Dahl performs on Friday and Saturday evenings and Kayleb James performs on Thursdays. Doors open at 7 p.m. with music starting at 7:30, followed by “NERVE” at 8 p.m. The play runs Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 11-20. The Bend Performing Arts Center is located at 1155 S.W. Division St. Plenty of free parking is available.
