Chekhov for children


April 08, 1999|By J. Wynn Rousuck

This is the last weekend to take the kids to see the Stanislavsky Theatre Studio's double bill of children's shows -- "Kashtanka" and "The Miraculous Magical Balloon" -- at the Theatre Project.

Adapted from a short story by Chekhov, "Kashtanka" tells the tale of a dog that is separated from its master and adopted by a family of circus performers. "The Miraculous Magical Balloon," an original one-act pantomime, is about a puppet that longs to be a prima ballerina. Based in Silver Spring, the movement-oriented Stanislavsky Theatre Studio was founded in 1997 by theater artists who emigrated from the former Soviet Union.

Show times at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St., are 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $12; $8 for students and children. Call 410-752-8558.
