The Emperor's Nightingale'

See the mystical story of how the love of a songbird saves the life of a Chinese emperor, in the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale "The Emperor's Nightingale," Saturday, May 30 and May 31 at the Hannah More Arts Center.

Enchanting original music highlights the play, as exotic sets of the Far East capture young people's minds and imaginations, in this Pumpkin Theatre production. A sign language interpreter will be present at the May 31 performance.

The fairy tale will be presented at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. each day at the Hannah More Arts Center at St. Timothy's School, Greenspring Avenue in Stevenson. Tickets are $8 in advance; $9 at the door. Call 410-323-9316. Experience the ultimate highs and lows of Mount Everest when you witness a film expedition's journey to the 29,028-foot summit and its heroic rescue of imperiled climbers caught in the deadly May 1996 storm, now Everest's most infamous tragedy.

The Maryland Science Center presents an IMAX double feature, "Everest" and "Thrill Ride," tomorrow for audiences with an inclination toward thrill-seeking and adventure. On a five-story screen, the drama of Everest and the fun of amusement parks give viewers a taste of some of life's most intense physical extremes.

Everest runs tomorrow through Oct. 1 at the Maryland Science Center at the Inner Harbor at 601 Light St. For show times or advance ticket purchases, call 410-481-7328.
