'Alice in Wonderland'
This weekend, the Jewish Community Center's Teen Theatre, a troupe of middle- and high-school students, performs Alice in Wonderland, a musical adaptation of the Lewis Carroll novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, at the Gordon Center for Performing Arts in Owings Mills.
Listen for original music and lyrics by Adam Busch, and look for Andrea Kovelman of Franklin Middle School as Alice, Andrew Sapinkopf as the White Rabbit, Ben Gansky of Sudbrook Magnet Middle School as the Mad Hatter and Sara Kirshner of Pikesville Middle School as the Queen of Hearts. The production is being directed by Daniel Sloane.
The Teen Theatre performs "Alice in Wonderland" at 8 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday in the Gordon Center for Performing Arts, 3506 Gwynnbrook Ave., Owings Mills. Tickets are $8. Call 410-356-5200, Ext. 328.
There's not a lot you can do with a snake once you've outgrown it. But at Saturday's Reptile Show (at the Havre de Grace Community Center) you can actually trade in your old, unwanted snakes, lizards and turtles for something more your style, like a nice frog maybe.
The show features more than 80 tables and booths jam-packed with cold-blooded creatures, their food, supplies and cages and a nifty little note that says you can buy, sell or trade the, um, pets. There are a couple of caveats, though: no venomous reptiles, no endangered species, all animals must be in cages, and - this ought to settle your mind - the center is "not responsible for injuries or damage."
The show runs 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Havre de Grace Community Center, 100 Lagaret Lane, Havre de Grace. $4 adults; $2 children 2 to 6. Call 410-526-4184.
