Behind the scenes at Olney Theatre

Ever wonder what really goes on backstage? Go behind the scenes at the Olney Theatre Center on Saturday for its annual open house. Take self-guided tours of the costume, set and performance areas, or learn some tricks of the acting trade from the center's residing touring company, the National Players. You can also browse the costume shop flea market, see a costume and prop exhibit and peruse the information tables on the theater's programs, including student internships and volunteer opportunities. Strolling musicians will perform, too. To close out the day, two live performances of Shakespeare's comedy "Twelfth Night" will be presented.

The free open house runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Olney Theatre Center for the Arts, 2001 Olney-Sandy Spring Road in Olney. "Twelfth Night" will be presented at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. for $10; $8 for open-house visitors. Call 301-924-3400.
