Make this a memorable Mother’s Day with three fun and fabulous activities. First, go beyond the traditional at TheatreNow on May 12, with a Mother’s Day Jazz Brunch featuring the Swingshifters. Mom will enjoy a delicious three-course brunch accompanied by the Swingshifter’s unique jazz stylings. Afterward, treat the best mother in the world to a Mother’s Day Dessert Cruise, courtesy of Wilmington Water Tours. This 90-minute Cape Fear River cruise is chock full of fun and historic tales about everything from pirates to blockade runners.
Mom can also indulge in a delightful dessert along with coffee and frozen drinks offered from a full bar during the cruise. Finally, top off the perfect day for Mom with a trip to The Wilson Center at Cape Fear Community College for a performance of Something Rotten. Showing May 11-12 and set in Shakespeare’s London of 1595, the story follows the misadventures of brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom, as they attempt to follow a fortuneteller’s not-so-sage advice to create a musical comedy. References to the Bard are rife, along with allusions to myriad musicals, and rambunctiousness rules over all!
