Here are some fun First State events to dive into this weekend.
1. Imagine a hard shell with the ingredients of all the pop tunes you love to sing. The reality of that idea is party band Flowers For Taco.
The band was born in the fall of 2013 with a simple idea. Band founder and front man Rusty Snow wanted to focus more on the B-side/rarities of many popular and indie artists. The name originated from an episode of “The League” entitled “Flowers For Taco,” which Snow had randomly suggested.
Now in their fourth year, Flowers For Taco continues to delight ears with tasty jams.
Flowers will share the stage with fellow Pennsylvania outfit The Jump Off at the Bottle & Cork, 1807 Highway One, Dewey Beach at 8 p.m., Saturday. INFO bottleandcorkdewey.com or 227-3888.
2. From the pages of Jacqueline Wilson’s best-selling novel comes the musical adaption “Hetty Feather.”
Hetty is a feisty young orphan with a curious imagination who embarks on a quest to find her true home. Coupled with live music and daring aerial feats, this new musical will delight the entire family.
“Hetty Feather” will be performed at the Delaware Theatre Company, 200 Water St., Wilmington at 8 p.m., Friday; 2 and 8 p.m., Saturday; and 2 p.m., Sunday. COST $15 students; $23 senior; $25 adult. INFO delawaretheatre.org or 594-1100.
3. Second Street Players’ “Nunsense: A-Men!” features males dressed as nuns. But make no bones about it, this show isn’t a drag.
The fun begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover their cook, Sister Julia, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they’re in dire need of funds for the burials.
The sisters decide the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is set up for the eighth grade production of “Grease.”
“Nunsense: A-Men!” runs at the Riverfront Theater, 2 S. Walnut St., Milford at 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday; and at 3 p.m., Sunday. COST $20 general admission; $19 on Sunday only for seniors and students. INFO secondstreetplayers.com or 800-838-300.
