Tuesday's TipSheet

On your radar screen: a night with Cary Grant, fun with Neanderthals, walking the planks on 'American Victory'

The Capitol Classic Film Series continues Tuesday with a little gem from 1955: To Catch a Thief, starring Cary Grant and Grace Kelly. Chances are you know the plot (a reformed jewel thief is suspected of returning to his former occupation and must prove his innocence), but did you know this trivia? In this film Jessie Royce Landis plays Grant's potential mother-in-law. In North by Northwest (1959), she would play his actual mother. Try using that on the usher to see if you can score a better seat. 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater, $6, (727) 791-7400.

Don't be fooled by the name. Bradley's Circus isn't really a circus. Hailing from the Netherlands, this roots combo features a dual female attack of vocalist/guitarist Mattanja Joy Bradley and harmonica sensation Lidewij Veenhuis. Together the group has wowed European festivals and clubs with its modern take on classic blues, rockabilly and other roots styles. 7 p.m. Tuesday, Skipper's Smokehouse, 910 Skipper Road, Tampa. $7. (813) 977-6474.

It's pay what you can night for Last of the Neanderthals, a play about three (you guessed it) Neanderthals whose way of life is challenged by a pair of attractive outsiders. This is part of American Stage's Hot Off the Presses play reading series. 7 p.m. Tuesday, American Stage Theatre Company at Raymond James Theater, 163 Third St. N, St. Petersburg. (727) 823-7529.

It's spring break this week for Hillsborough public school students. Looking for something inexpensive but fun to do? Students on spring break this week can play on the American Victory ship for free with the purchase of one full price adult ticket. Once on board, they'll receive a fun worksheet of items to be found on the ship. Kids are encouraged to walk the planks and other fun activities on this scavenger hunt. After the hunt, they can try their hand at make-and-take crafts. Open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday at 705 Channelside Drive, Tampa. Admission is normally $10, $8 seniors/veterans, $5 12 and younger. (813) 228-8766.
