Fancy meeting some WWE wrestlers, cast members of The Flash, Walking Dead, and Avengers plus the iconic host of Taradise? Then, congratulations, you can at Wizard World St. Louis! May 22nd–24th will be a nerd holiday for anyone in the Midwest who belongs to a fandom or enjoys meeting celebrities (that would be ME). My first Wizard World experience in Nashville was quite fun, if not a little overwhelming, and I WILL BE BACK FOR STL. This time, I am extremely excited to meet all of the random assortment of celebrities and to stock up on some cool merch for sale from the vendors.
If you’re looking for a good con to start out on, Wizard World is the best one. Read on for my picks for best events, celebrities and fandoms to be on the lookout for while you’re at the con.
Ed. Note: In an on-going effort to spotlight local shows and events that will interest teens (some of Baewatch’s biggest readers), I will be writing reviews and features for the Orpehum’s Broadway season throughout the year. You all should know I love anything dramatic and sometimes outrageous. Enjoy a break from your smartphones and let me know if there’s anything else you would like to see me review!

This weekend at in Memphis, for two nights only, you can witness Disney In Concert: a unique collaboration between The Orpheum Theatre and The Memphis Symphony Orchestra. Disney In Concert will feature many of Disney’s best known songs through live performances and clips from classic Disney films.
“Disney in Concert offers the music that audiences know and love presented in a whole new way,” explains Roland Valliere, President and CEO of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra. “If you’ve been attending our concerts since the beginning, this is the show for you. If you’ve never been to the Symphony before, this is the show for you.”.
Iren Zombor, Assistant Principal cello from the Memphis Symphony Orchestra, is confident that audiences will walk away from the show with a new interest in classical music–even if they weren’t aware that they’ve always enjoyed it. “People often forget that they listen to classical music on a regular basis when they go to the movies, go see a show at the Orpheum and so on,” she says. “They enjoy it, take it for granted and than decide that classical music is too high brow! What a silly idea. By offering this live concert to the Memphis audience which will most likely be mainly made up of families, we will entertain them and educate them by opening their eyes to what a treasure live classical music is to their community. I hope they will keep coming back for more.”
