The current show features cast members 14 and younger in the fairytale musical favorite "Cinderella," which continues at St. John's College's Key Auditorium through Sunday, July 18. Still purring along in its 23rd season and nearly 10 years after the death of founder Bobbi Smith, the Talent Machine continues to reflect her...

An enchanted evening can be found by entering Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre to go "Into the Woods" — where nothing is quite what it seems, and fairy-tale characters interact in unexpected ways. This groundbreaking 1987 musical was written by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, and Annapolis Summer Garden offered a magical outdoor production in 2001. The sardonic, sophisticated tale is even better this time around for the troupe. Music is paramount in this show, and the score for "Into the Woods" is well interpreted by music director Trent Goldsmith, who leads the ensemble in a near-flawless delivery of Sondheim's challenging work.

"OUR RECORDS may not be the longest, but our spirit is ever the strongest " So goes the fight song for Baltimore's Forest Park High School. Never were those words truer than over the weekend, when the Forester basketball team capped a Cinderella performance by winning the state's Class 1A championship.Not bad for a team that went 2-15 in the regular season against such city powerhouses as City, Douglass and Dunbar. The Foresters kept the games close; they just didn't have the manpower to compete against bigger schools.

Melancholy fits the game of baseball like a batting glove. For every moment of heroic achievement, there is one of misery and despair; for each Bobby Thomson "shot heard 'round the world" to win the 1951 National League Pennant for the New York Giants, there's a Bill Buckner error to cost the Boston Red Sox the 1986 World Series. That doesn't make baseball a bad sport, it makes it a great one. Overcoming adversity is the nature of baseball, and if adversity didn't sometimes win, it wouldn't be much of a game.

A movie review of "Celestial Clockwork" in yesterday's Today section misidentified music from an opera used in the film. The music was from Rossini's "La Cenerentola."The Sun regrets the error.Count "Cinderella" among the handful of stories that nodirector can really truly screw up, because its story mechanism is so perfectly wound and because its payoff is so deliciously enjoyable.Thus what is most amusing about "Celestial Clockwork," a French-Venezuelan-Belgian-Spanish (!) co-production opening today at the Charles, is the clever usage it puts to the Cinderella story.

It must be hard for David Lee Roth to accept what has become of his career.Once the leader of the greatest post-Led Zeppelin rock 'n' roll band in the world -- Van Halen -- Roth has now been relegated to the musical B-team and is even being upstaged in the minor leagues by upstarts like Cinderella and Extreme, who opened his show last night at Merriweather Post Pavilion.Last night's effort from "Diamond Dave" was nothing short of pathetic.Roth gave his solo music and the hallowed classics of Van Halen such poor readings that it was easy to believe he would stop halfway through the show and say it was all a bad joke.

A large "glass slipper" carved in ice stood in the center of the Baltimore Hilton ballroom, encircled by a series of casino games. On one wall, a dinner buffet offered a regal banquet. Against another, the backdrop of a castle, in front of which sat a throne. After all, this was the Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Baltimore's "Cinderella Ball" -- the throne providing a perfect photo op for any aspiring royalty. As far as Prince Charming went -- "You have to supply your own," quipped party co-chair Richard Oloizia.

Pieces of column too short to use:Waydago, Junior! . . . Who isn't glad to see Cal Ripken Jr. on a tear? Every batting average point over .280 drives home the point that he's worth what he demands in a new contract with the Orioles. Still, a lot of people are amazed that he turned down $30 million over five years. A man called me recently to say it was obscene, and that such money should go to the poor. I told him that was a nice thought but the money probably would not go to the poor; it would go to either Eli Jacobs or Cal. And, given the choice, who would he rather see get it?

Randallstown girls basketball coach Ron Isaacs called his team "the Cinderella team" of the state Class 2A state semifinals, but the Rams did not have a great time at the ball. Isaacs' youngsters stuck close for a while before Middletown's combination of outside shooting and inside strength overwhelmed them and powered the Knights to a 60-27 victory at UMBC's RAC Arena. The Rams (22-7) had their only leads in the first quarter. Mariah Byam's follow shot and Essence Stinnette's free throw gave them a 9-8 edge, but that would be their last lead as Middletown scored 12 straight points.

Fairy tales seem like so much fun until you start paying attention. All that violence and vengeance, the spookiness, illusion, deceit. "And ah, the woods," as Stephen Sondheim writes in his latest book. "The all-purpose symbol of the unconscious, the womb, the past, the dark place where we have our trials and emerge wiser or destroyed. " In one of his most imaginative contributions to the Broadway musical, Sondheim invites audiences to step "Into the Woods," where a mash-up of fairy tales, tribulations and discoveries await characters and audiences alike.

Heads up: Entering Bahoukas Antiques Mall and BrewMania MuZeum in Havre de Grace may cause a bit of sensory overload. The 10,000-square-foot shop is jam packed from floor to ceiling with various antiques, toys, collectables and more. “We have a lot of cool, funky stuff that you won't find in other stores,” says Barbara Wagner, who owns and operates Bahoukas with her husband, George. The couple met four years ago and married a year later in a Cinderella-themed wedding because George is an avid collector of Cinderella memorabilia.

For its first production of the new year, Colonial Players presents a loopy fairy-tale retelling in Don Nigro's "Cinderella Waltz" that delivers laughs and leads to rethinking what constitutes a happy ending. Prolific playwright Nigro once told the Journal of Dramatic Theory and Criticism that he values "emotional truths, and every play is a new investigation into truth. " Presumably, his 1978 "Cinderella Waltz" is such a philosophical search for truth by examining the choices made by his quirky fairy-tale characters.

Summer is officially here when the carnivals come to town, and the Owings Mills Volunteer Fire Company's carnival was 11 days of nonstop fun! As a major fund-raiser, this event has been a mainstay of the community, and has undergone many changes over the years. The changes, however, have made the carnival more successful, and a pleasure to attend. Jolly Shows brought a variety of rides, games of chance and food, and there was an admission charge at the gate. In previous years, the carnival was held at the Metro Lot and each year there seemed to be more trouble than the last.

The 2011 NCAA tournament officially tips off tonight with a pair of play-in games -- I'm still scratching my head at UAB and Clemson playing for a No. 12 seed -- but the bracket bonanza for most pools begins Thursday afternoon with the Round of 64. That means we have approximately 48 hours to sort through statistics, break down matchups and finalize our brackets. I did all of my homework last night for our unofficial employee pool here at The Baltimore Sun , and I'm confident that I will win a pool for the first time since Maryland was last in the Sweet 16 (that was back in 2003 if you have forgotten)

If I were lucky enough to land an hour-long interview with Buck Showalter, I would spend about 59 minutes sitting in awe of the most interesting manager in the world. WBAL's Gerry Sandusky got to sit down with Showalter for a lengthy Q&A session and he made much better use of the time than I would have. There was a lot of good stuff in Sandusky's interview -- I admit I'm jealous -- and my favorite part was when Sandusky mentioned to Showalter that Cal Ripken once told him that "the greatest purity of baseball is the 162-game season" because "it's just long enough that it will out any fraud.
