Irish steps: Dublin Irish Dance, 7:30 p.m. March 9, State Theatre Center for the Arts, is an accomplished dance troupe of Irish step dancers and an eight-member traditional Irish band and vocalist. The troupe’s members have performed throughout the world with “Riverdance,” Michael Flatley’s ”Lord of the Dance,” and “Celtic Woman.” With favorite Irish melodies, traditional steps and Celtic instrumentals, Dublin Irish Dance’s production of “Stepping Out,” above, tells the story of Irish Immigration to the United States and the evolution of Irish traditional dance and music. Tickets: State Theatre Center for the Arts box office, 453 Northampton St., Easton; statetheatre.org; 1-800-999-7828; 610-252-3132

Once Again: The Fab Faux returns, 8 p.m. March 10, to the State Theatre Center for the Arts, to perform The Beatles’ ”Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album, and Beatles’ favorites, accompanied by The Hogshead Horns, The Crème Tangerine Strings and Erin Hill. The Fab Faux, above, founded in 1998 by Will Lee, bassist for Paul Shaffer’s CBS Orchestra on the “Late Show With David Letterman,” includes Jimmy Vivino, music director-guitarist (“Conan”), lead-singing drummer Rich Pagano, guitarist Frank Agnello and multi-instrumentalist Jack Petruzzelli. Tickets: State Theatre Center for the Arts box office, 453 Northampton St., Easton; statetheatre.org; 1-800-999-7828; 610-252-3132

Life is: Based on Roundabout Theatre Company Tony Award-winning production, “Cabaret,” 7 p.m. March 11, turns the State Theatre Center for the Arts into the Kit Kat Klub, where the Emcee, Sally Bowles and a raucous ensemble, above, tantalize the crowd to leave their troubles outside. But as life in pre-World War II Germany unravels, will the decadent allure of Berlin nightlife get them through the night? The answer may lie in the songs, “Cabaret,” “Willkommen” and “Maybe This Time,” by John Kander and Fred Ebb. Tickets: State Theatre Center for the Arts box office, 453 Northampton St., Easton; statetheatre.org; 1-800-999-7828; 610-252-3132
