Out of the past

The lowdown -- Baltimore scenes from decades past are the focus of Susan Sykes' exhibit at Antreasian Gallery. In Watercolors and Oil of Vintage Baltimore, Sykes based her works on photographs taken in the city from the '30s to the '50s. They depict street cars, movie theatres, fashion and city architecture.

If you go -- Watercolors and Oil of Vintage Baltimore runs through July 28 at Antreasian Gallery, 1111 W 36th St. There is a free reception 5:30 p.m.- 8:30 p.m. Saturday. Hours are 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays. Call 410-235-4420 or visit antreasiangallery.com.

Fun love

The lowdown -- Every year about this time, the Young Victorian Theatre Company springs (summers?) into action with a production of a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta. For its 2006 season, this lively, semi-professional ensemble has chosen one of the famed duo's least familiar works, The Sorcerer, which tells the tale of a magic love potion that goes a wee bit awry. Propelling the story is the same sort of clever wordplay and infectious music that have kept Gilbert and Sullivan popular the world over since the 1870s.

If you go -- Performances of The Sorcerer are at 8 p.m. Saturday and 32 p.m. Sunday at Bryn Mawr School, 109 W Melrose Ave. Also at 8 p.m. July 13 and 15, 3 p.m. July 16. Tickets are $35. Call 410-323-3077 or visit yvtc.org.
