Ray Road) for a two-night-only engagement starting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Oct. 19 and 26.

The Sound of Music Sing-Along Event includes the sing-along version of the fully restored feature with classic songs that have delighted fans for decades, such as "Do-Re-Mi," "My Favorite Things," "The Sound of Music," "Edelweiss" and "Climb Ev'ry Mountain."

Tony, Emmy and Golden Globe award-winner John Lithgow performs ‘Stories By Heart'

Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts will present John Lithgow in his critically acclaimed, one-man theatrical memoir Stories by Heart at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 21, and 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 22, in the Virginia G. Piper Theater at 7380 E. Second St.

A Tony, Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning actor, Lithgow offers a touching and humorous reflection on storytelling as the tie that binds humanity. Invoking memories of his grandmother and father before him, Lithgow traces his roots as an actor and storyteller, interspersing his own experiences with two great stories that were read to him and his siblings when they were children: Uncle Fred Flits By, by P.G. Wodehouse, and Haircut, by Ring Lardner.

In addition to his acting, Lithgow has written eight best-selling children's picture books, released three children's albums and performed concerts for children with numerous symphonies.

Tickets, $49 and $59, are available by calling the box office at (480) 994-2787, ext. 2, or online at
