The weekend's upon us. Books, music and journalists getting funny onstage are all beckoning to you this weekend. First off, head to the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.

Trinity University's drama department has tackled a challenging production. It's called Good Kids, but it's based on something that's not good. Kyle Gillette is director of theater at Trinity University.

"It's inspired kind of loosely by the Steubenville rape case. It deals with what leads up to an assault. How different stereotypes or beliefs about gender and sexual roles play into it."

But does something yanked from the headlines result in good theater? Gillette says an emphatic yes.


Classical music, mariachi and good, old-fashioned exercise -- the Weekend is here.  Here are a few things to consider doing: First let's go downtown to the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, where on Friday and Saturday nights the music will ring out.

"We have the opening weekend of the San Antonio Symphony Pops series."

Associate Conductor Akiko Fujimoto will be directing.

San Anto Cultural Arts

To hear Keli Kubonoc talk about it, you'd think she was talking about an arts high school.

"We're proud that a lot of our alumni have gone on to the Pratt School of Design in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago. We've got quite a few UTSA graduates."

But she's talking about San Anto Cultural Arts, the non-profit that encourages area kids to explore their artistic side at their El Paso Street studio. While they instruct in a variety of media, they specialize in one.

It's a cultural event created around the idea of film, but there's more than just film. The San Antonio Feminist Film Festival kicks off tonight and its co-creator is Joyce Townsend.  She says that films are just part of what the Film Festival is all about.

"The Film Festival actually started with the premise that there needs to be more civil discourse. So it was really just a means of enjoying some films together that are pretty creative and usually pretty new."
