There is plenty of art, music and theater in your future as you gear up for this weekend. And don’t forget a few practical jokes just for kicks.

The show takes place from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday at Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4265, 419 E. Victory Way.

This month, there are special April Fools’ Day performances by John Prine, Iris Dement, Jeff Beck and BB King.

Check them out from 9 p.m. to close Friday and Saturday at the Sports Page Bar at the Holiday Inn of Craig, 300 S. Colo. Hwy. 13.

There’s no cover and there’s plenty of drinks to go around.

• If you’re feeling inspired by the live music, don’t miss your opportunity to shine with auditions for the Craig Concert Association’s annual Talent Show.

Auditions run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Moffat County High School auditorium, 900 Finley Lane.

Keep it between three and five minutes, or submit a CD if you can’t be there.
