Family-friendly options around the Triangle this weekend include a Disney stage show, games from the early 20th century, art, poetry and the conclusion of the annual independent businesses-oriented “Where’s Waldo?” scavenger hunt.
▪ “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast” concludes a six-day run at Raleigh’s Memorial Auditorium this weekend, with show times Friday at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday at 2 and 7:30 p.m. If your kids have seen the 1990s animated film and the more recent live-action one, here’s an opportunity to experience the story onstage. Tickets range from $25 to $110. Visit dukeenergycenterraleigh.com.
▪ Kick it old school – seriously old school – Saturday at Durham’s Leigh Farm Park. Children can experience what play was like for kids a hundred or more years ago at A Kids Life: Old School Games. This free program lasts from 10 a.m. to noon and no registration is required, though adults must stay with their kids. Visit tinyurl.com/y9e9qoqj.
▪ For this weekend’s family-friendly tour, the North Carolina Museum of Art waxes poetic. On the Poetry in Art tour, kids can find inspiration for their verses and compositions in the museum’s visual exhibits, turning pictures into 1000 words (or less). Meet Saturday at 10:30 a.m. at the West Building Information Desk. Visit ncartmuseum.org.

One is 3 p.m. at Durham’s Regulator Bookshop, while the other is 2 p.m. at Raleigh’s Quail Ridge Books. Visit regulatorbookshop.com or quailridgebooks.com.
