Tragedies, dogs and balloons


The Stanislavsky Theater Studio might not sound like a Maryland troupe, but this young company is based in Silver Spring. Founded by theater professionals who immigrated to this country from the former Soviet Union, the company takes its name from the late Russian director, actor and teacher Konstantin Stanislavsky.

Tomorrow, the Stanislavsky Theater makes its Baltimore debut with the first of two productions to be performed at the Theatre Project. "The Little Tragedies," a quartet of short pieces by Alexander Pushkin, will run weekend nights through April 11. On March 20, it will be joined by matinees of a double bill of "Kashtanka," an adaptation of an Anton Chekhov story about a dog, and "The Miraculous Magical Balloon," an original pantomime.

"The Little Tragedies" will be performed at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 7 p.m. Sundays, tomorrow through April 11. Tickets are $15; $12 students and seniors. "Kashtanka" and "The Miraculous Magical Balloon" will be performed at 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, March 20 through April 11. Tickets are $12; $8 students and children. The Theatre Project is at 45 W. Preston St. Call 410-752-8558.
