Theater & dance

“Hello, Dolly.” After receiving raves on Broadway and winning four Tony Awards, this “Hello, Dolly!” production is now touring America, paying tribute to the original work of legendary director and choreographer Gower Champion — hailed as one of the greatest stagings in musical theater history. The musical follows the story of Dolly Gallagher Levi, a strong-willed matchmaker. 8 p.m. Jan. 21-25; 2 p.m. Jan. 25; and 1 and 7 p.m. Jan. 26. $30-$135. Bass Concert Hall, 2350 Robert Dedman Drive.


“The Contemporary Print.” PrintAustin presents the seventh annual juried international exhibition at Big Medium. “The Contemporary Print” is a survey of traditional printmaking techniques and innovative approaches in contemporary printmaking. A number of artists in the field, including David Avery and Michelle Martin, were selected to be shown in the exhibition as juried by Claudia Zapata. PrintAustin’s annual festival is ongoing. Noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday through Feb. 15. 916 Springdale Road, Building 2, No. 101.


KMFA’s New Music Mixer. KMFA 89.5 and Sightlines are proud to present the New Music Mixer, a monthly happy hour series for classical music nerds and newbies alike that will be held at Friends & Allies Brewing. The next event features a conversation with spotlighted composer Kenzie Slottow. Enjoy $1 off your pint and geek out over your love of new music. Slottow is an Austin-based flutist and composer who currently plays with modern folk band FlecHaus. 5:30 p.m. Jan. 21. Free. 979 Springdale Road, Suite 124.


Terror Tuesday: “Fright Night” at the Alamo Drafthouse. From the director of the original “Child’s Play,” Tom Holland, is the 1985 “Fright Night.” It’s everything you want from a movie that features a vampire wearing a white turtleneck. When total hunk Jerry Dandrige (Chris Sarandon) moves into the neighborhood, his next door neighbor Charlie Brewster suspects that something is wrong — probably because Charlie sees Dandrige turn into a vampire. See it in 35 mm. 9:30 p.m. Jan. 21. $5. Alamo South Lamar, 1120 S. Lamar Blvd.
