The yellow brick road runs to Roland Park Public School

Dorothy, the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion will cavort on the yellow brick road once again on Saturday and Sunday, April 10, when Pumpkin Theatre presents "The Wizard of Oz," performed by Bob Brown's Puppets.

Performance times both days are 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. at Roland Park Public School, 5207 Roland Ave. The 3:30 p.m. April 10 performance will be sign-interpreted. The show is intended for audiences ages 4 and up. Tickets are $6 in advance and $7 at the door. For more information, call (410) 323-9316. One of the most famous sculptures of the 20th century is Constantin Brancusi's "The Kiss," in which the two humans embracing are reduced to essentially abstract forms. One is inevitably reminded of the Brancusi by a sculpture of two figures embracing by P. Randall Whitlock, at Resurgam. But the Whitlock has the title "Returning to Spirit," so its genesis may be a different idea from that of "The Kiss." It is one of a group of Whitlock sculptures in a three-person show, where they are joined by sculptures of Susan Whittier and paintings of Maureen Jorden Tierney. The exhibit runs through April 16 at Resurgam, 910 South Charles St. Call (410) 962-0513.

John Dorsey Kinetics Dance Theatre will hold a 10th anniversary gala at Smith Theatre, on the campus of Howard Community College, on Friday . The performance will feature the debut of "Misa Criolla," a folk mass based on Hispanic-American traditions, choreographed by artistic director Ken Skrzesz.

In addition, three other pieces choreographed by Skrzesz are on the program: "Water Works," about similarities between tidal forces and human relationships; "Confrontations," about man in the work place; and, danced by the Apprentice Company, "Songs of Young Love," about teen-age passions. In addition, Amanda Thom-Woodson's "The Life and Times Of . . ." will be performed.

The evening begins at 7 p.m. with wine and cheese; the performance is at 8 p.m., followed by a champagne reception. Tickets are $35 for adults; $20 for students. Call (410) 461-9907.
