  • Los Alamos Little Theater, 1670 Nectar St. will hold auditions for its November production, “An Inspector Calls.” Auditions will be from 6-8 p.m. Aug. 14 and 6-8 p.m. Aug. 15 at the Los Alamos Little Theatre. Callbacks will be Tuesday evening.
    LALT encourages anyone interested to audition. The play will feature English accents, but even if yours is not perfect at audition time, no worries, there’s plenty of time to work on it before the show opens.
    “An Inspector Calls” by J.B. Priestly is almost a “ghost story” about an English Family in 1912. The family at first seems very common and happy, with an upcoming wedding to be planned.

  • Janie O’Rourke will lead a hike for the Pajarito Environmental Education Center at 9 a.m. Saturday to Graduation Point. The hike will start at the Walkup Aquatic Center and is free and open to the public.
    The hike is a fairly level, out-and-back of about three miles total distance, and will about three hours to complete. A geologist will also be on hand.
    The hike begins behind the aquatic center and heads east along a new trail built just below the north edge of Los Alamos Mesa. This trail hugs the side of the mesa and offers views into the canyon and out to the east. While most of the trail is level, it does have a few short, steep sections and occasional precipitous drop-offs on one side.

  • For a shopping (or browsing) experience, head over to Fuller Lodge Art Center on Saturday for the 34th annual Summer Arts and Crafts Fair.
    Among the 100 artists planning to show their work on Saturday, approximately 20 percent are showing  in Los Alamos for the first time, so even the most avid fair attendees will see some new things.
    The fair runs from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., with the Rodeo parade passing by on Central Avenue at 10 a.m. and with a Flamenco dance performance at 11 a.m. The Art Center will have a booth set up in the center of the lawn, offering ice water and mocktails (margarita and piña colada flavored drinks) to enliven the festivities.

  • Las Tejedoras, a group of tapestry artists have put together a show at the Karen Wray Fine Art Gallery and Studio, 2101 Trinity, Suite B-2. The show will feature an opening reception from 5-7 p.m. Aug. 19 and will run until Sept. 16.
    Las Tejedoras Tapestry Group is composed of experienced tapestry artists and relative newcomers to the field. The  group has been meeting regularly for several years and participates in design activities and supportive critique of each other’s work.
    This past summer, the group participated in the Santa Fe showing of small format tapestries. Each member wove butterflies, resulting in a wide variation of butterfly tapestries.
