Plenty of fun events to explore this weekend. At CCCC there's a Multicultural Festival that includes "immersion rooms" of different cultures.  "The Mumberly Inheritance" is an old-time melodramatic theater production offered by the Chatham Drama Guild. The Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra holds it's Soloist Competition, rescheduled because of Blizzard 2013. And an art exhibit at Sandwich Glass Museum offers portraits from the Sandwich Historical Society of people who lived in town during the 19th century.

Lots to do this weekend on the Cape and Islands. Steve Junker and Kathi Scrizzi Driscoll have a rundown of events. There's an Oscar watching party on Martha's Vineyard with a real Oscar you can hoist, and a concert of Oscar music with the Cape Cod Opera. The "King and I" is in production with a father-and-son angle. A Rogers and Hammerstein review features a notable harp. And Chinese-American dancers celebrate the Lunar New Year at Cape Cod Community College.

Listen to the conversation above.
