FAIRFIELD COUNTY, CONN. -- Here are five of the biggest events coming up in Fairfield County.

1. "Souvenir" at the Westport Community Theatre , Saturday, April 12.

Wealthy eccentric Florence Foster Jenkins suffered under the delusion that she was a great soprano – when she was, in fact, incapable of carrying a tune. Nevertheless, performs the ballroom of the Ritz Carlton hotel, and mobs of fans pack her recitals, stuffing handkerchiefs in their mouths to stifle their laughter. The wild ride culminates in a single concert at Carnegie Hall in 1944. $20. 110 Myrtle Ave.

2. Stamford Museum and Nature Center's Art of Bonsai Workshop and Exhibit: Friday, April 11, 1 to 4 p.m.; Saturday, April 12, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (special demo 2 to 4 p.m.); Sunday, April 13, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Yama Ki Bonsai Society of the Greater New York Area will present the third annual "Art of the Bonsai", a boutique exhibition of the ancient art of bonsai. Noted Bonsai artist John Romano will demonstrates the traditional shaping of a tree for bonsai on Saturday. Free. 39 Scofieldtown Road.

3. Linda Lavin, Tony Award winner and Emmy-nominated TV star and singer comes to Fairfield's Edgerton Center , Sunday, April 13 at 3 p.m.

Tony Award and Golden Globe winner Linda Lavin will give a live interview and question-and-answer session about theater and the arts at the Sacred Heart University's Edgerton Center.

4. Danny Paisley and The Southern Grass Concert at The Palace Danbury , Saturday, April 12 at 8 p.m.

Danny Paisley and the Southern Grass play powerful, All-American bluegrass music, all while telling compelling stories. A must for traditional music lovers. $25 to $30. 155 Main St.

5. Meet Legendary New York Mets Player "Doc" Gooden at the Ridgefield Playhouse , Thursday, April 10 at 7:30 p.m.

Dwight "Doc" Gooden will be sharing the most intimate moments of his successes and failures, from endless self-destructive drug binges to three World Series rings. $10. 80 East Ridge.

I’m sure we’ve left some big events out. Tell us where you’ll be heading and why.
