Delicate and colorful, more than 40 species of butterfly flit through a tropical paradise inside the Hilbert Conservatory through September 10. New butterflies hatch daily, and you can learn about the metamorphosis that takes them from egg to larva to pupa to butterfly as you watch them drink nectar from glass feeders. The exhibit is included with zoo admission of $12.45 and up.
Peewinkle’s Puppet Studio recently moved to a new space on the second floor of the Indiana State Museum. The 65-seat theatre is the perfect venue for friendly mice, a fairy godmother, a magical pumpkin coach, and a dreamy, charming classic tale. Tickets are $12 and include popcorn. Receive $2 off same-day museum admission with your ticket.
Singer/songwriter Andrew McMahon started playing piano at age 9 and has been a fixture on the rock scene since the late ’90s. This tour is supporting his latest album, Zombies on Broadway, released last month. Alternative rockers Night Riots and Atlas Genius are opening Saturday’s show at Old National Centre. Tickets start at $24.75.
Bernard is living the high life in Paris in the swinging ’60s with a snazzy bachelor pad and three beautiful stewardess girlfriends whose flight schedules keep them from knowing about each other. Perfect, until Robert moves in and forgets which lies to tell, while a new, faster jet gets all the ladies in town at the same time. Tickets start at $25 and you can take off through April 2.
In 1943, approximately 3,000 Italian prisoners of war were held at Camp Atterbury. In this exhibit at the Indiana Historical Society, learn about the Chapel in the Meadows the POWs built, the symbolism of the art created, their service in World War II, and the kindness they enjoyed during captivity. The exhibit is open until August, 2018, and is included with general admission of $5-$9.
