Top things to do in Columbus for June 28-30

"Little Women,"  through July 14

For a quiet, mid 19th-century domestic drama, "Little Women" has inspired a surprising number of film and theatrical adaptations. Perhaps that's because the joys, squabbles, romances, tragedies and sisterly solidarity of March sisters Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy are both hopelessly old-fashioned and perfectly timeless. You can catch the Actors' Theatre production at the Schiller Park Amphiteater Thursday through Sunday at 8 p.m. this weekend and through July 14. Free, with donations encouraged—or reserve a chair or blanket for $25.

The Peach Truck Cookbook Tour, Friday, June 28

’Tis the season for peaches and no, you don’t have to go to Georgia to enjoy them. Jessica and Stephen Rose—the duo behind Nashville-based peach delivery company The Peach Truck—are coming to The Book Loft this Friday at 7 p.m. There they’ll sign copies of their new book, “The Peach Truck Cookbook: 100 Delicious Recipes for All Things Peach,” which hit shelves on Tuesday. Make sure you pick up some peaches to go with that; The Peach Truck will be in Central Ohio this Friday and Saturday.

Patriotic Pops, 8 p.m., Saturday, June 29

To kick off the week’s Independence Day celebrations, the Columbus Symphony Orchestra will hit the Columbus Commons stage for a night of American classics, joined by Flight One, the U.S. Air Force’s pop music band, for a set of Top 40 hits. Stick around for the fireworks at the end of the show.

Judith Resnik and the Challenger Space Shuttle, Saturday, June 29, and Sunday, June 30

The Akron native, the second woman in space, will be the focus of a couple of programs at the Ohio History Center that will explore her life, legacy and tragic death. Resnik was one of five NASA astronauts aboard the spacecraft, which also included a payload specialist and teacher Christa McAuliffe, when it exploded 73 seconds into its flight.
