The Grandview Playhouse

The most fun you’ll have with a calendar of events all week. And you just might learn something, too.

Saturday, Feb. 10 — Valentine workshop, 1 to 3 p.m., Worcester Historical Museum, 30 Elm St. Considering Worcester’s role in the commercialization of the valentine, it would be borderline criminal to stalk the Hallmark aisles at CVS when you could personally craft a V-Day card for your sweetie right here in the Woo. The two-hour workshop is bolstered by a 1:30 p.m. presentation by museum honcho Bill Wallace, who’ll delve into the history of Esther Howland and Worcester’s valentine connection.

The no-cost event is part of the Worcester Historical  Museum’s “Free February” promotion.

Sunday, Feb. 11 — Worcester County Light Opera Company presents “Play On,” 2 p.m., Grandview Playhouse, 21 Grandview Ave. This bone-tickling farce by Rick Abbot follows the travails of a theatre troupe trying to round out a show while beset with the unrelenting interference of an OCD playwright who can’t stop revising the script. From dress rehearsals to live performance, Murphy’s Law rules the stage. Directed by Jake Lewis.

Tickets are $22; $18 for students and seniors. Remaining show dates are 8 p.m. on Feb. 15, 16 and 17, and 2 p.m. Feb. 18.

Tuesday, Feb. 13 — ‘Time Machines,’ 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Mary Cosgrove Dolphin Gallery, Worcester State University, 486 Chandler St. The month-long exhibit, which debuted on Thursday, carries the trippy description of an installation where “every object is a time machine that exists in the long NOW that brings us back to a time past or points to possible futures.” A variety of media is used “to reflect any and all aspects of time: personal, historical, cosmological, past and future, and real and imagined.” Why did I just read that in Rod Serling’s voice?

The free exhibit is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, and 1 to 5 p.m. Saturdays.

Wednesday, Feb. 14 — Women’s basketball, Wellesley at WPI, 7:30 p.m., Harrington Auditorium, 151 Salisbury St. Who wants to cuddle by the fire after a divine Valentine’s Day meal when you could be hugging the bleachers and catching some women’s college hoops? The high-flying Engineers (16-5 overall, 9-3 NEWMAC at press time) offer an easy-to-love alternative by hosting league foe Wellesley College.

Ama Biney (13.4 PPG) and Madison Beck (11.9) pace the locals’ offensively, while Biney and Maura Buckley hoard the boards with 7.5 and 6.3 rebounds a game, respectively. Caitlin Aguirre leads the Blue (7-12, 4-8) with 12.2 PPG.

Friday, Feb. 16 — ‘A Hollywood Valentine with Valerie Sneade,’ 7:30 p.m., Calliope Theatre, 150 Main St., Boylston Call us hopeless romantics, but we can’t leave without one more Valentine’s-related event. A professional singer and actress, Sneade pays tribute to a pantheon of love-song crooners, including Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand, Bette Midler and Doris Day — all while ladling on some of her famed humorous banter.

The one-weekend-only performances also take place at 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $20 apiece; $17 for students and seniors.
