Second City.
Second City.

Shakespeare mania is in full swing in Santa Fe through the coming week, with more events than even the most fervent Shakespeare lover could manage to attend.

But there are a few highlights you might want to consider, such as “Dames of Thrones,” an official premiere by New York’s Ducdame Ensemble of the women in Shakespeare’s plays (7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Adobe Rose Theatre, $10-$20, ticketssantafe.org) and, on noon the same day, the Santa Fe Shakespeare Society presents “Shakespeare’s Whirled,” an imaginative and comic play that shows what happens when Shakespeare and his family have to perform his works with no rehearsal (free, NM Museum of Art).

The Santa Fe Community Orchestra presents a concert of music inspired by and with readings from Shakespeare’s works, with contributions from the Ortiz Middle School Guitar Ensemble (free, 7 p.m. today, St. Francis Auditorium, NM Museum of Art), while the youth troupe Upstart Crows will present pop-up performances of scenes from some of the Bard’s plays from 1-5 p.m. Sunday at the museum.

Time for Three.

IMPROV GREATS: The Chicago-based troupe that gave birth to a generation or two of comic greatness is bringing its Valentine’s Day show, “Hooking Up With the Second City,” to the Lensic Performing Arts Center, 211 W. San Francisco St., at 7:30 p.m. today. You’ll never know what to expect from this group, but a good bet is that a lot of what they produce will have you laughing. Tickets are $32-$47, available through ticketssantafe.org or 988-1234, and may give you the chance to say “I knew them when … .”

GUYS WITH STRINGS: Performance Santa Fe is bringing Time for Three, a free-wheeling trio that first met as students at the Curtis Institute of Music and doesn’t announce its program until the members take the stage. Violinists Zachary DePue and Nicolas Kendall, along with double bassist Ranaan Meyer, will be at the Lensic at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday with a show that costs $20-$40. You can get tickets through performancesantafe.org or ticketssantafe.org.

OCCUPIED L.A.: That’s what “Colony,” a USA Network television show set in the “near future,” is about: folks in an occupied Los Angeles trying to win back their freedom. A couple of free episodes will be screened 7 p.m. Thursday at the Jean Cocteau Cinema, 418 Montezuma Ave., with a chance afterward to ask questions of Ryan J. Condal, the show’s creator, like, “Who the heck is occupying them, anyway?”
