Anne Arundel Community College's Moonlight Troupers put on two shows each academic year that typically have been recognized for the quality of students' performance and for superior costuming and sets, also largely the product of student efforts. The Troupers hope to continue that tradition with their musical comedy adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's The Emperor's New Clothes, which opens today at 7:30 p.m. at Anne Arundel Community College's Pascal Center for the Performing Arts.

Ah, vanity! Hans Christian Andersen satirized the vice in his fairy tale The Emperor's New Clothes, and Jim Eiler and Jeanne Bargy made it something to sing about in their musical version of the tale, which will make its Maryland debut at Pumpkin Theatre this weekend. Roger Schulman plays the preening monarch, Tiffany Walker Porta is his wife, and Shawn Doyle and Dana Whipkey are the con men who pull the wool over the emperor's eyes (without adding a stitch of it to his wardrobe). Direction and choreography are by Todd Pearthree.

Until now."The Little Mermaid" -- which in 1989 marked Disney's return to movie-animation world domination -- is back. "Only Disney. Only in theaters through Nov. 30," the chipper print ads read.

What do trolls, polar bears and evil snow queens have in common? They each are the subject of a story to be read at this afternoon's winter bash at the Hampden Branch Library. "Polar Bears and Ice Queens," an event for kids ages 6 to 12, will present stories, crafts and snacks all related to wintry weather. The 45-minute program, which also expresses the values of different cultures, will kick off with the reading of three culturally varied tales. The Snow Queen by Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen is a classic fairy tale chronicling a girl's quest to rescue her friend from an evil snow queen.
