Drawn to art

Washougal Studio Artists will host its annual Spring Studio Tour from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, timed for Mother’s Day gift-giving. The tour includes the work of 23 local artists at seven studio locations. Tour-takers can meet the artists and learn about their inspiration and creative process. The tour features original works in fused glass, textiles, bronze sculpture, painting, jewelry and mixed media. See a tour map and driving directions at washougalstudioartists.org.

Flower power

Magenta Theater, 1108 Main St., Vancouver, presents “Steel Magnolias,” playing Friday through May 19. This play follows the lives of six extraordinary women, showcasing their friendships, laughter and the strength they draw from one another. Performances are 7:30 p.m. May 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 16, 17 and 18 with 2 p.m. matinees May 5, 12 and 19. Tickets are $25 at magentatheater.com or $28 at the door.

Diva duet

Reprise Choir Sings co-directors April Duvic and Janet Reiter-Galbraith will perform a concert, “One Piano, Four Hands, Two Divas,” at 3 p.m. Sunday at First United Methodist Church, 401 E. 33rd St., Vancouver. Duvic and Reiter-Galbraith will play several four-hand piano duets and sing two duets, as well as perform solo piano and vocal pieces. The program includes works or arrangements by Mozart, Beethoven, Dvorak, Tchaikovsky, Grieg and Brahms. There’s a $20 suggested donation to attend. Proceeds benefit Reprise Choir Sings.

Sunny side up

Love Street Playhouse presents “The Sunshine Boys,” showing through May 19 at 126 Loves Ave., Woodland. The play follows Al and Willie, former top-billed vaudevillians who are now estranged. When CBS invites them to host a “History of Comedy” retrospective, a grudging reunion brings them back together, along with memories, miseries and laughs.

Tickets are $15 to $45 at kigginstheatre.com. The speaker is Steven Sobieszczyk, a scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey.
