Musical 'Velveteen Rabbit'

Watch a classic short story come to life in a musical adaptation this weekend. "The Velveteen Rabbit," a story of a stuffed animal's quest to become real, will be performed as a musical play on Sunday by the Columbia Center for Theatrical Arts at the Peggy & Yale Gordon Center for Performing Arts. Local actresses Melissa Gregory, Pamela Jackson, Angela Scimonelli and Desiree Taormina star, as well as local actors David Lee and Tim Ownby. This original adaptation by Carole Graham Lehan of the Margery Williams tale features original music by Tom French and offers thoughtful messages for all, LTC including being true to oneself, believing in oneself and the qualities of love.

The play will be performed Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Peggy & Yale Gordon Center for Performing Arts, 3506 Gwynnbrook Ave., Owings Mills. Tickets are $15 for adults and $7 for children under 12. For more information, call (410) 356-SHOW. Gather 'round the fire, kids. And get ready to cozy up with some animal tails. Well, tales, that is. Scales and Tales, an environmental education program through the Department of Natural Resources, is offering children and parents an evening of stories, lessons and songs on many wild animals and birds of prey tomorrow night.

Watch your back and keep an eye out for the animals, as they come to life from the stories. Scheduled to make appearances are an owl, snake and other surprises. Who knows -- perhaps a vulture or hawk.

Campfire with Scales and Tales will be at Soldiers Delight NEA, 5100 Deer Park Road, Owings Mills, tomorrow night at 7 p.m. Cost is $2 per person. Space is limited, so call for reservations. (410) 922-8825.
