5 things to do on the North Shore this weekend

A rock tribute band is set to help North Shore audiences take it to the limit – one more time. Eagle Eyes, a tribute to the legendary music of the Eagles, is performing a show at Centennial Theatre in North Vancouver tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. The tribute act is well known for taking great care in recreating the soaring harmonies and special live performances the Eagles were known for. But unlike Hotel California, after checking into Centennial Theatre you’re allowed to leave after the show. Tickets: $25-$40

This is the last weekend to catch Reverberations, playwright, sound designer and memory explorer Brian Linds’ production on the story of his life, which is being staged at Presentation House Theatre tonight at 7:30 p.m., tomorrow at 4 and 7:30 p.m., and Sunday at 1 p.m. Using a variety of sound mediums, Linds will explore everything from his parents’ love story, his bar mitzvah, and his mother’s sudden lucidity in the late stages of Alzheimer’s disease, among other topics. Tickets: $28

Everybody’s working for the weekend, but that doesn’t mean you should sleep on 9 to 5: The Musical, showing at The BlueShore at CapU tonight and tomorrow at 8 p.m., and on Sunday at 2 p.m. Based on the 1980s movie of the same name, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton, the musical is a rollicking tale of friendship and revenge set in the Rolodex era. Tickets: $10-$24

Head on down to the water on Sunday to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at Lonsdale Quay Market. The day kicks off at 10 a.m. with a pop-up Irish market, followed by a performance by the Eire Born Irish Dancing company in the market’s rotunda at 11. Starting at noon, there’ll be plenty of kids’ crafts and balloon twisting on the retail level. Visit the Quay website for more information.

It’s spring break and you’re wondering what on earth to do with your kids. The Lynn Valley Ecology Centre has you covered with a number of its Wildlife Weeks events which commence tomorrow and are running until March 28. A series of wildlife experts will be giving presentations on everything from reptiles from around the world, how to attract friendly mason bees, and the importance of staying bear aware. Suggested donation: $2 per person, or $5 per family. Register or find out more about the schedule of events by visiting lynncanyonecologycentre.ca or calling 604-990-3755.
