Lots of fun concerts are vying for your attention in Greater Morristown this weekend. Fortunately, you’ve got four chances to catch Legally Blonde, The Musical, at Morristown High School.
And then there’s Old Timey music made new, a Beatles tribute that never grows old, Grover and Rio on the same stage, three ladies serving classics with sex appeal, a symphony, jazzy worship, and music with Heart. Well, half a Heart.
You can learn about Cretans, and one of the world’s great religions.
Or just shop till you drop at one of the area’s most colossal rummage sales.
