`Something Dickens'

The lowdown -- The Baltimore Shakespeare Festival has staged works by Charles Dickens and, of course, William Shakespeare in the past. Now the classical company is combining the two in a commissioned work called Something Dickens This Way Comes, which begins performances tonight. Written and directed by Silver Spring-based playwright Kathy Feininger, Something Dickens brings the tale of Dickens' A Christmas Carol together with passages from Shakespeare. The production stars Conrad Feininger (Kathy's husband) as Ebenezer Scrooge, with Jen Plants and Reece Thornberry playing the rest of the Christmas Carol roles.

If you go -- The Baltimore Shakespeare Festival performs at St. Mary's Outreach Center, 3900 Roland Ave. Show times are 8 p.m. Dec. 8-10, 15-17, 22-23; 7 p.m. Dec. 20-21; and 5 p.m. Dec. 11 and 18. Tickets are $25 ($15 for students). Call 410-366-8596 or visit baltimoreshakes



The lowdown -- Suzan Rouse is an experimental printmaker whose innovative works combine etching, monoprint and chine colle, a collage technique, in unexpected, technically fearless ways. This month she teams up with fellow printmaker and local artist Megan O'Brien Gold for a two-woman show at Resurgam Gallery.

If you go -- The gallery is at 910 S. Charles St., through Dec. 24. Hours are noon to 6 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, and by appointment. Call 410-962-0513 or 410-986-0169. [GLENN MCNATT]
