More to do, Saturday, Jan. 14


Theater & dance

“Call of the Wild” at Stateside at the Paramount. This multimedia adventure mixes classic storytelling with projected illustrations and original music to tell the story of Buck, the magnificent cross-bred offspring of a Saint Bernard and Scottish collie. Sent to work as a sled dog during the great Klondike Gold Rush, Buck fights to survive and becomes one of the most famous dogs. This Austin-based company, Theatre Heroes, is making their Stateside at the Paramount debut with this compelling one-man production. 2 p.m. Saturday. $22. 719 Congress Ave. 512-472-5470, austintheatre.org.

“Disney’s the Little Mermaid.” Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories and the classic animated film, it’s a love story for the ages. View the majestic play for one more weekend before it leaves the Georgetown stage. 7:30 p.m. Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday. $14-$30. Georgetown’s Historic Palace Theatre, 810 S. Austin Ave. 512-869-7469, georgetownpalace.com.

Comedy

Start Trekkin’ at the Hideout Theatre. Prepare to explore strange new worlds this January and February at the Hideout. The theater’s hit show is returning to the stage to create episodes set in the galaxy of “Star Trek.” In each episode, the cast will take you on a never-been-seen-before journey through the many worlds of the beloved, campy 1960s sci-fi TV show by cleverly blending audience suggestions and “Star Trek” canon. 8 p.m. Saturdays through Feb. 25. $15. 617 Congress Ave. hideouttheatre.com/shows/StartTrekkin.

Art

“In the Absence of Ideal Conditions.” Multidisciplinary artists Elaine I-Ling Shen and Alyssa Taylor Wendt are working together for the first time to produce this collaborative show at the ICOSA Collective of sculptures, video and installation. Noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays or by appointment through Feb. 11. 702 Shady Lane, Suite 190 512-920-2062, icosacollective.com/home.html.

Second Saturdays at the Contemporary Austin. Attend January’s creative family-friendly workshop, which this month highlights pattern experimentation using an ancient fabric-dyeing technique. This inky activity, inspired by the waves and currents of Laguna Gloria’s lakeside setting, will also feature a hula hoop how-to by a local hula hoop expert. Second Saturdays offer free admission to visitors, but make a reservation on the website to attend the workshop. 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Laguna Gloria, 3809 W. 35th St. 512-458-8191, thecontemporaryaustin.org.

Saturday Morning Drawing Salons at Elisabet Ney Museum. Through these weekly workshops, visitors will have an opportunity to draw from Elisabet Ney’s sculptural works in her very own historic artist studio. Each session will be hosted by one of the museum educators, and all of the required materials will be provided. Participation is free and open to everyone, regardless of age or level of experience. Elisabet Ney was a European-born portrait sculptor from the 1800s. 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday. 304 E. 44th St. 512-974-1625, facebook.com/events/1145317668918930/.
