RISD The Musical!?

RISD students are an eccentric bunch, but this is just beyond: This weekend, they’ll spoof the art school experience with two presentations of RISD The Musical!  The one-hour show chronicles the "tumultuous" journey from application to graduation. Sounds self-indulgent, but the project actually serves a greater good: All ticket sales benefit Partners in Health’s relief efforts in Haiti.

February 26 and 27 at 8 p.m. $10 suggested donation. RISD Auditorium, 17 Canal St., Providence.
