Do something different this summer at Neo at Mission Foothills.

Bring blankets, beach chairs, and your whole family to Murray Community Center to watch a live performance of Shakespeare’s tragic masterpiece. This unique experience is sure to give you a newfound appreciation for theatre, and inspire you to attend and read more of Shakespeare’s other works. Pro-Tip: It can get chilly, so be sure to dress warmly!

Groove in Ontario

Whether you live at Olive or Oleander, you’ll have a great time at the nearby Silent Disco! Here, you can dance like you would at any other party, but you will be wearing headphones, so you control the music and volume. All headphones will have color-coded lights to specify which station each person is grooving to. If you see someone dancing to a station you love, don’t hesitate to reach out and make friends in the process.
