They take on Auburn Sunday at 1 pm.

On the stage, the Ocala Civic Theatre has started its latest production, the comedy I Hate Hamlet.

Also in Ocala, the Humane Society of Marion County is having a one-night charity event at the Ocala Drive-In. Pups, PJ’s and Pupcorn is a fundraiser that benefits homeless pets.

If dogs and cats don’t interest you, how about bulls? The Professional Bull Riders Unleash the Beast Invitational is at the Southeastern Livestock Pavilion this weekend.
