Family musicals

Enter into a world of fantasy, music and adventure this weekend as the Pumpkin Theatre offers two unique performances. Tomorrow, the Pumpkin "Storybook" Theatre performs "Small Crimson Parasol," an interactive musical adaptation of "Little Red Riding Hood" - set in Japan. The tale is presented for one show only at the Hannah More Arts Center, as part of "Friday Family Night Out."

This is the final weekend to see performances of the original family musical "Alice in Wonderland" at the Arts Center. The interactive show takes characters on a wondrous trip and has audience members dancing in their seats. The music and script were written by Mark Andrew Beachy, the playwright who created the prize-winning musical, "'Bout Baltimore."

The performance of "Small Crimson Parasol" will be at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow. Performances of "Alice in Wonderland" will be at 1 and 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. All shows take place 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.

Want to stand out in the crowd? Get your very own antlers Saturday at ZooLights at the Baltimore Zoo. Visitors will find themselves showing a resemblance to Rudolph and his pals, after the Zoo hands out free antlers to wear. (Not from real animals.) Visitors also may stop by the nose-painting stations throughout the zoo for a shiny red addition.

ZooLights, the walk-through wonderland of lights, closes Sunday. Visitors still have four days to hop aboard the Polar Express for a ride through Candyland, stop by the new train garden and enjoy hot cider and other holiday goodies.

Antlers will be given to all visitors at ZooLights Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., while supplies last. ZooLights runs nightly 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. through Sunday. Admission is $4.50

adults; $2.50 ages 2-15 and ages 62 and over. At Druid Hill Park. Call 410-366-LION.
