Menopause the Musical (Friday)

Hands On History: Traders, Trappers & Treaties (Saturday)
On Saturday, glimpse the hustle and bustle of day-to-day business in the mid-1800s at Sutter’s Fort, which was a hub for entrepreneurial traders and trappers in the region.

Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park. 2701 L St. 445-4422.

The Conductor: Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad (Saturday and Sunday)
Written by B Street Theatre’s associate producer Jerry R. Montoya, this biographical family play—which opens on Saturday—focuses on the life and work of Harriet Tubman and her role in the Underground Railroad. The work imagines the abolitionist ferrying an African-American male slave to freedom and includes flashbacks to Tubman as a young girl, when she was known as “Minty” and lived as a slave herself in Maryland. $20 ($15 for ages 18 and under). Saturday and Sunday at 1 and 4 p.m. B Street Theatre’s B2 Stage. 2711 B St. 443-5300.
