This is really all you need to know, from the invitation: “Features a ’70s disco pet fashion show.” OK, we suppose you’ll need a little more — it’s the annual East Lake Pet Orphanage Wine on the Roof fundraiser for the neighborhood’s most prominent vet, adoption, orphanage, shelter for pets, and it happens Saturday from 7-11:30 p.m. at 10101 East Northwest Highway. The theme is Can You Dig It? And The night includes wine and gourmet food, live and silent auctions and celebrity guests, to name a few things. This has grown into quite the event. Tickets are $95 for general admission and a table for 16 goes for $5,000. These and other options are available here — act before Friday, as some sales will end then.

Peek inside some of the most beautiful White Rock area backyards on the White Rock East Garden Tour, set for Sunday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Get tickets and all the details in our May feature on the 16thannual event.

Homicide isn’t typically hilarious, but this dark comedy has entertained audiences for 76 years. Watch the wacky antics of Mortimer Brewster and his bloodthirsty aunts in “Arsenic and Old Lace,” opening Friday at Pocket Sandwich Theater, 5400 E. Mockingbird Lane. The show runs through June 19, with performances every weekend. Tickets are $12-$25 and available here.
