The Short List

An A&E pocket guide for April




THE CIRCLE OF LIFE
4/17-5/13
The Lion King leaps onto the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre stage with fanciful giraffes and gazelles, dazzling dancers and sets and, of course, the king of the jungle.
 


 


 

SUGAR, BABY!
4/27-4/29
It’s a necessary evil to forget the low-carb meal plan—for three days anyway. Besides the obvious yummies, The Festival of Chocolate (April 27-29 at UCF Arena) features chocolate trivia, wine and chocolate pairings and Chocoland—a chocolate museum. The Great American Pie Festival (April 28-29 in Celebration) boasts a never-ending pie buffet and vendors touting their crusty creations.
 


 

KICK THIS AROUND
4/15-5/5
Orlando City Soccer, champs of the United Soccer Leagues in their first year, play several home games the next few weeks at the Florida Citrus Bowl. These guys are good. You’ll be kicking yourself if you don’t catch a game.
 


 

EXTENDED PLAY
4/14-5/5
SeaWorld Orlando lives la vida loca with three weeks of music, food and celebration at the annual event Viva La Musica. Among the acts: Elvis Crespo (right) and Grupo Niche.
 


 

FILM. FOOD. FRIENDS.
4/13-4/22
Step 1: Flip off TCM and get off of the couch. Step 2: Go to floridafilmfestival.com and start planning. The Florida Film Festival is your chance to experience movies the way they were meant to be experienced—in theaters filled with fellow cinephiles munching on popcorn. This year, the festival might be as much about edibles as it is about cinema, with Marcel Vigneron, of Top Chef fame, making a special appearance.
 


 

WILD PAPARAZZO
5/10-13
Snap! Orlando 2012 will be four days of all things photography, with this year’s “UrbanWild’’ theme focusing on street/documentary-style imagery.
