Events for the week

Walt Disney's World on Ice--Toy Hopefully, the backlash against Hunchback of Notre Dame won't cause the Disney juggernaut to tighten totalitarian quality control, thereby preventing the occasional, accidental creation of a smart, edgy children's flick. After all, Toy Story fit this bill and stuffed the Mouse's pockets with staggering worldwide box-office receipts. The Disney-fication of this very un-Disney movie was inevitable, as frustrated college graduates with drama degrees don ice skates and masks of Buzz, Woody, et al for Toy Story on Ice. Performances happen March 20 and 21, 7:30 p.m.; March 22, noon, 3:30, and 7:30 p.m.; and March 23, 1:30 and 5 p.m. at Tarrant County Convention Center in Fort Worth, as well as March 27 and 28, 7:30 p.m.; March 29, noon, 3:30, and 7:30 p.m.; and March 30, 1:30 and 5 p.m. at Reunion Arena, 111 Sports, in Dallas. Tickets are $10-$18.50. Call (214) 373-8000.

A Celebration of Spring: Midnight tonight marks the Spring Equinox for 1997, a time of significance to pagans and Christians alike (all pagan-naysaying Christians, take note: one of your most important holidays, Easter, is determined every year by the moon cycle that follows March 21. Seems Jesus and the Moon Goddess have more in common than you like to think). "A Celebration of Spring" features neither overtly Christian nor pagan rituals, just a festival to mark the passage of seasons with poetry by Clebo Rainey and Opalina Herebia, dances by Lora Cain and Michele Sandlin, percussion by Jamal Mohamed, and ritual/talk by Amy Martin and Mahalene Louis. The event happens 7:30-9:30 p.m. at Club Dada, 2720 Elm at Crowdus. Call (214) 744-
