The end of the season in South Florida culminates with one of the busiest weekends. From Cinco de Mayo to SunFest to the Kentucky Derby, there are plenty of activities to choose from.

2) Something Rotten - West Palm Beach
Welcome to the ’90s — the 1590s — long before the dawn of premium tickets, star casting and reminders to turn off your cell phones. Brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as “The Bard”. When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first MUSICAL!
