`Great Musical Stories'

Just utter the words classical music or theater to a kid, and you're likely to get a grimace. But throw in some words like pantomime, magic and neat story, and you might get a different reaction. Saturday, Landis & Company Theatre of Magic presents "Great Musical Stories" with all those things at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. The theater company brings the tales of William Tell, Don Quixote and more to life. Kids will be entertained by the company's performance of Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks by R. Strauss, the story of a clowning prankster, as well as The Sorcerer's Apprentice by Paul Dukas, the tale of a disobedient aide. Music will be provided by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, with Lara Webber conducting. Rheda Becker will narrate the stories. The show is geared to children ages 7 to 12.

Landis & Company performs at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St. $12. Call 410-783-8000.
