There are several events this weekend in Atlanta that will allow visitors to see stories or venues in a new light through unique and imaginative programming.

There’s a book made into a play, “Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type,” at Center for Puppetry Arts. And a hit show, “The Handmaid’s Tale,” on view as an exhibit at SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film.

Two higher education venues offer atypical events for the public — a free screening of “The Greatest Showman” at Georgia Tech and a night run/music festival at Georgia State’s Stadium.

Atlanta Shortsfest at Synchronicity Theatre offers two days of short films where live theater usually abounds.

Finally Sundays on the River brings a live concert to the Chattahoochee Nature Center.

Have fun finding new experiences in Atlanta this weekend!
