Theater at Monmouth’s “Measure for Measure.”

‘Measure For Measure’
7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Other dates and times through Aug. 22. Theater at Monmouth, 796 Main St., Monmouth, $22 to $36.
Theater at Monmouth presents a classic Shakespeare tale that tackles moral dilemmas, religious hypocrisy and the power dynamics between those in power and the people they govern. “Measure for Measure” is a dark comedy about what happens when justice and authority are corrupted and what it really means to be loving and merciful. Watch the drama unfold for yourself this summer, as the play runs well into August.

Founders Day Classic Car Exhibit & Festival

If classic cars are your thing, you’ll want to burn rubber getting to South Paris for the Founders Day Classic Car Exhibit & Festival. The jewel in the crown of this event is the private collection of the Bahre Family of more than 60 incredible vehicles, including Packards, Duesenbergs, Stutz Bearcat, a Tucker, vintage race cars and several others. You’ll also find food and vendors on site, and there will be live music. In other words, there’s plenty to get revved up about. Hit the road, Jack (and Jane)!
