Looking for something to do in Scottsdale and the surrounding areas? Here's an overview of some events coming up in the greater Scottsdale area over late August and September 2012.
- The Secret Garden musical - From August 31 to October 6, the Hale Theater in Gilbert is staging a production of The Secret Garden. Sit back and enjoy this long-treasured and award-wining story.
-Sustainable Edible Gardening - August 25th - The Maricopa County Cooperative Extension is holding a class on how to create a low-maintenance, sustainable and edible garden. They will even be covering some edible plants of the more exotic variety. If you cannot make this class, on September 5th, there will be a class on how to attract Monarch Butterflies to your garden as they migrate through Arizona.
- Forever in Blue Jeans? One of the most well-loved performers is coming to the Valley on August 29th. Neil Diamond is coming to the US Airways Center in downtown Phoenix to perform. The show starts at 8 o'clock and I'm certain you'll be singing along almost the entire time.
- If you're in the Biltmore area and have some free time, the Arizona Biltmore Resort is hosting a Marilyn Monroe exhibit called The Marilyn Paintings: Portraits of the Goddess by Ludvic. It will be in place until September 5 and entrance to this exhibit is complimentary.

There will be classes, tastings, a raffle and more. Phoenix Cooks! will take place at the Westin Kierland in Scottsdale on September 1 from 10 AM to 3 PM.
- Les Miserablesis back by popular demand and will be playing at ASU's Gammage theater between September 11 and 16. This was well-received before and should be even better this time around.
- Ballet Arizona is performing Ballet Under the Stars from September 20 through September 29. These family-friendly performances are free and will take place all over the Phoenix Valley. Please see the link for the different locations.
- And one final classic music performance... On September 4th,Crosby, Stills and Nashwill be performing at the Phoenix Convention Center in Symphony Hall. It should be a great show in a beautiful setting in downtown in Phoenix.
