5 things to do this weekend in York

You might want to pull your winter coats out of the closet again. We're in for a chilly spring weekend, and we might event see some snow.

But that doesn't mean you should cancel your weekend plans and stay at home.

Here are some fun indoor events, from an escape room to a night at the theater, to check out in York.

See Diane Crews' last act at DreamWrights

DreamWrights founder Diane Crews will direct her last play before retiring from the theater this weekend. "Young King Arthur," a play she wrote, opens at 6:30 p.m. Friday. Additional weekend showtimes include 2:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday. The production will run through April 24.

Take your kids to an escape room

Mojo's Museum, an escape room designed just for kids between the ages of 8 and 13, opens to the public Saturday at Escape Games Live in downtown York. Groups of children will have one hour to work together to solve a series of puzzles in an effort to escape from Professor Mojo, a fictional character who wants to entrap children in escape rooms throughout the world. Children will feel like they're in an interactive science museum as they play instruments, create shapes and use colored glasses to find secret codes hidden throughout the room. Visit to book an escape room experience.

See a high school musical

It's not too late to catch a high school musical in York County. Several productions, including Eastern York's "Fiddler on the Roof," Hanover's "Jekyll & Hyde" and William Penn's "In The Heights" are still happening this weekend.

Meet the experts at Pa. Herb and Garden Festival

Don't have a green thumb? Garden experts are here to help at the Pa. Herb and Garden Festival at the York Expo Center. From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, guests can listen to speakers and participate in workshops that teach everything from growing herbs in a 12-inch pot planter to creating a home for a garden gnome.

Check out a new York College art exhibit

This exhibit might look more like a library than an art exhibit. Senior graphic design majors spent the semester creating art books for their capstone exhibit. Their works include a children's book, a compilation of letters from a World War I soldier, a re-imagining of movie posters and a dark humor magazine.
