PokéFest SA

Sat., July 20, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.
Norris Conference Center 618 NW Loop 410, San Antonio Central

Buy Tickets$15-$47


Once again, it’s time to grab your ‘mons and get your poké on for San Antonio’s homegrown event celebrating one of the most beloved game series and anime this side of Japan. PokéFest SA returns this year with special guest Tara Sands, who voiced Bulbasaur, Phanpy, Oddish and more in almost 200 episodes of the English version of the Pokémon anime. In addition to both Pokémon and Magic: The Gathering card game tournaments, the con includes a pop-up PokéCafé run by the Sweetness Maid Café, in which maids and butlers will serve up sweet treats while you enjoy Pokémon-themed games and a photobooth. If the idea of an American version of the infamous Japanese maid cafés makes you a bit uncomfortable, though, there are plenty of vendors, cosplay and more for you to check out at the day-long event.

Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical

Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. and Sundays, 2 p.m. Continues through Aug. 11
The Public Theater of San Antonio 800 W. Ashby Pl., San Antonio Central

Buy Tickets$20-$45


Most fans of Roald Dahl’s Matilda can agree that the scene in which “Poor Brucey” is forced by Miss Trunbull to consume an entire, Willy Wonka-sized chocolate cake as punishment for stealing a single piece is one of the most memorable moments from the story. In the novel, the titular heroine defeats such evil with words — and telekinesis, of course — but the musical adaptation offers the chance to experience the magic in song. Born to the Wormwood family in the whirlwind of ballroom dancing with a dip and a little foxtrot, the child genius Matilda erupts from the gloom of her cruel childhood as a miracle with bravado and pizzazz. Believe it or not, Matilda actually shares the record for most Olivier awards won by a musical with Hamilton! Although Mara Wilson certainly won’t be reprising her filmic role, Matilda will spunkily take her adolescent revolution to the Public Theatre stage, played by Taylor Henderson and Audrey Davis.
