When the theater gets into your blood as a youngster, it tends to stay there a lifetime. That sums up the creative life of Annapolis' Joe Thompson, the head of video programming for the Anne Arundel Board of Education's cable channel -- who also is one of the area's busiest actors and directors and whose resume boasts appearances at Colonial Players, Chesapeake Music Hall and the Bowie Playhouse. When not acting or directing, Thompson writes plays, skits and songs. Those efforts will be brought to life in Cabaret for Kids, a revue of his funny, highly original material that will be performed at Colonial in Annapolis during the first two weekends in August by a vibrant cast of 14 children and five adults ranging in age from 6 to 75. "I love everything about doing these shows," said Thompson, who put together his first such Cabaret six years ago to help celebrate Colonial Players' 50th anniversary season.

THE CHARACTER of Saddam Hussein is the inspiration and central figure in a new play, but the Iraqi leader's character never appears on stage."Saddam," a drama with comic moments by Michael Elkin having its world premiere at the Fells Point Cabaret Theatre tomorrow, examines the futility of war and, to some degree, the hopelessness of peace.Presented under the auspices of Howard Perloff Productions, the five-character work is the company's first all-Equity show. Perloff plans to take the play, with its cast of professional New York actors, to an off-Broadway or Broadway house at the conclusion of the Baltimore run in June.

COMEDY MASTERS OF IMPROV There's no telling what to expect when comedians Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood get in front of an audience. The whole auditorium's a stage to these masters of improv, who hit the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall Saturday for the first time since their sellout 2005 show. Both comedians have done time on Whose Line Is It Anyway? and have performed with such venerable comedy troupes as Second City and Theatersports. You might also recognize them from appearances on The Drew Carey Show.
