Masco's High School and Middle School Jazz Bands, Percussion Ensemble and Jazz Choir will perform a special selection of music while attendees enjoy an ice cream sundae bar, raffles and more. Advance tickets cost $12 per person and proceeds benefit the Masconomet Music Parents Association, which annually awards more than $12,000 in merit scholarships to underclassmen and seniors for music lessons, enrichment programs and post graduate studies. Details and reservations are available at www.mascomusicparents.org, or by contacting Glaudia Giustra at cgiustra@gmail.com. The high school is located at 20 Endicott Road in Topsfield.

Get re-enchanted by the magic of fairytales when Cohen Hillel Academy's Upper School students perform Stephen Sondheim’s “Into the Woods.” The musical intertwines the characters and plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales to tell the story of a baker and his wife. The production is suitable for all ages and will be held at Temple Sinai, located at 1 Community Road in Marblehead. Doors open 30 minutes before the show, which starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at the door and cost $8 for students and $16 for adults. For more information, call 781-639-2880.

Albright, the first female U.S. Secretary of State, shares her experiences of historical events, including the Nazi invasion of her hometown when she was 12 years old, the Battle of Britain, World War II, the rise of communism and the onset of the Cold War.
