THINGS TO DO THIS WEEK­END Win­ter weather, sleigh rides, Christ­mas shop­ping … yep, it’s De­cem­ber. Mix it up a bit this week­end — a con­cert or some theatre — even sci­ence fun — to go along with your hol­i­day prepa­ra­tions.

BODY WORLDS: AN­I­MAL IN­SIDE OUT Where: Telus World of Sci­ence, 11211 142 St. When: Opens to­day

Cost: $24.95 and up

Fol­low­ing the huge pop­u­lar­ity of Body Worlds — an amaz­ing look at the hu­man body be­neath the skin — we now get An­i­mal In­side Out, the same type of look at the an­i­mal world. The ex­hibit is an anatom­i­cal sa­fari of more than 100 spec­i­mens, each painstak­ingly pre­served by the process of plas­ti­na­tion. This bi­ol­ogy text book-come-to-life takes a close look at eels, goats, os­triches, ele­phants, oc­to­puses and more. IS­TOCK IS­TOCK

Ed­mon­ton act­ing heavy­weights take on Noel Coward’s bub­bly com­edy Fallen An­gels at the Varscona this week­end. Teatro favourites such as Belinda Cor­nish, Rachel Bowron, John Ully­att, Vanessa Sabourin and Nathan Cuckow make the pro­duc­tion funny, frothy and light — a breezy look at 1920s des­per­ate housewives — and a per­fect ex­cuse to take a break from hol­i­day shop­ping or cold weather.
