What’s Coming Up in October for McLean Community Center

Normally the McLean Community Center’s October calendar would be full of fall activities and gatherings. The lingering specter of COVID-19 has muted that somewhat, but there are still several virtual or distanced in-person events planned over the next month.

  • Twelfth Night (Friday, Oct. 2, 7:30 p.m.) — The American Shakespeare Center is hosting a live, virtual performance of the Shakespeare comedy. An American Shakespeare Center staff member will be online to answer questions and provide insight. Tickets are $15 or $10 for McLean residents
  • The Unruly Theatre Project’s Virtual Improv Show (Wednesday, Oct. 7, 7 p.m. and Wednesday, Oct. 28, 7 p.m.) — The Alden theater is sponsoring a virtual improv show. The program is free and viewable after registering online.
  • Virtual Family Fun Trivia Night (Friday, Oct. 23, 7-9 p.m.) — Families can register as a group ($5 per family) to engage in socially distant trivia hosted by The Old Firehouse. Prizes are awarded for winning teams.
  • House of Terror and Family Trunk or Treat (Saturday, Oct. 24, from 6-9 p.m.) — The Old Firehouse is hosting a haunting at the teen center, turning the facility into a walk-through house of horror. The program is also providing a “Trunk or Treat” program as an alternative to trick or treating.
  • Virtual: McLean Uncorked (Sunday, Oct. 25, 5-6 p.m.) — Chain Bridge Cellars in McLean is hosting a free wine discussion with both beginners and connoisseurs. A wine expert will lead the session and explore various aspects of wine, from production to food pairings. Wine must be purchased separately.
  • Spooky Virtual Family Bingo (Friday, Oct. 30, 7 p.m.) — The Old Firehouse is hosting a Zoom bingo session. Families are encouraged to dress in costumes and join the call. Prizes will be awarded each round of bingo and Old Firehouse staff will vote on the best costume.
