Here is a roundup of entertainment news and events for March 5-11, 2015


Ticket lottery for 'Mormon'

Fans of the Tony Award-winning musical “The Book of Mormon” will have one last chance to get tickets for the show's sold-out March 10-15 run in Madison.

A pre-show lottery will be conducted in the Overture Center for the Arts lobby, 201 State St., about 2½ hours before each performance. Participants should print their names and number of tickets they want (up to two) on cards, which will be drawn at random for a limited number of $25 tickets.

Only one entry is allowed per person. Winners must attend the drawing, which takes place two hours before showtime, and must carry valid IDs.

Learn to collage

The workshop, “Collage My Way,” starts at 1 p.m. Alexander will demonstrate how she paints and creates patterns on plain white paper, which she then tears up and assembles into a collage. She also will show how to glue the papers and different ways to use water media.

Admission is free and open to the public. To learn more, call 608-754-4544.


Display moves to bank

The Parker Pen exhibit “Making Their Mark: 125 Years of Parker Pen” has moved from Olde Towne Mall to BMO Harris Bank, 100 N. Main St., Janesville.

The display will be at the bank through November. For more information, visit rchs.us/parker-pen-125.
