Children's theater to be presented at Baldwin's Station

Baldwin's Station is offering its Creative Children's Series of theater this winter. Performances will be given by Duet Productions, a nonprofit organization.

Cinderella will be performed Jan. 12. In this version, in addition to the classic story about Cinderella, a jazz trumpeter trying to make it big in the palace must fend off the advances of one of the wicked stepsisters.

On Feb. 9, Snow White takes the stage. This story is told from the seven dwarfs' point of view, and in this case, big people are in trouble, especially the evil queen.

All shows are at 3 p.m. and last less than an hour. Tickets are $6.95; children ages 2 and younger are admitted free. A lunch with the actors after the show is available. Advance tickets are recommended.

Baldwin's is at 7618 Main St., Sykesville. Information: 410-795- 1041.
