3 Fun Things: Nov. 17-19


ROSWELL

Roswell Tellabration

If there’s one thing we know in the South – aside from how to cook mind-blowing barbecue and biscuits – it’s storytelling. The tradition has been passed down through generations and is prized as an ability to weave tale for strangers and friends alike. Roswell is celebrating this talent by taking part in the worldwide Tellabration event, when four storytellers will wow audiences with their words. The tales will be family friendly, but geared toward an adult audience.

7:30 p.m. Nov. 17. Free. Chattahoochee Nature Center, 9135 Willeo Road, Roswell. 770-640-3253, visitroswellga.com.

MARIETTA

The Magical World of Movies

A great film is nothing without a great musical score, and the Georgia Philharmonic wants to celebrate that feeling by showcasing some of the best soundtracks from a list of exceptional films. From classics such as “Beauty and the Beast” and “Snow White” to “How to Train Your Dragon” and “Star Wars,” the concert will feature a variety of moving musical numbers. Before the show, support the orchestra’s work by participating in a silent auction. Items such as barbecues, spa treatments and movie packages will be up for grabs.

7 p.m. Nov. 18. $10-$30. Lassiter Concert Hall, 2601 Shallowford Road, Marietta. 404-500-9276, georgiaphilharmonic.org.

STONE MOUNTAIN

Charity Warehouse Sale

Women’s and kids’ fashion line Mud Pie is hosting its annual charity warehouse sale, and the emphasis is on charity.
