After starting with Cole Porter's classic "Anything Goes," then moving to the hilariously horny puppets of "Avenue Q," Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre closes its diverse 2012 season with "Xanadu," the 1980 film disaster converted into a 2007 Broadway roller disco hit. This summer's productions offered something for every taste, from classic Broadway to weird coming-of-age to the absurdity of a Greek muse turned Australian roller girl banished from...

Hazelton, Pa. -- The heart of Pennsylvania coal country seems an unlikely place to convene a gathering of Olivia Newton-John fans.But admirers of the Australian entertainer who -- dressed in spike heels and a black leather jacket -- gave John Travolta chills in the 1978 movie "Grease" will meet here today to reminisce about Ms. Newton-John, her music, movies and other work.Why Hazelton?

They watched Vanna White play a statue that came to life, so why not Olivia Newton-John as a living, breathing mannequin?Suffice it to say we're not talking "Pygmalion" by George Bernard Shaw. "A Mom for Christmas," an NBC movie that will be on Channel 2 (WMAR) at 9 o'clock tonight, is a too-sweet cupful of tinsel-strength holiday froth made from a bit of "Cinderella," a -- of "Pinocchio" and a spoonful of "Mary Poppins."Jessica's mother died when the girl was 3. When her fairy godmother spots the lonely preteen, played by Juliet Sorcey, wandering a department store, she grants the child's wish for a Mom for the holidays, bringing a mannequin to life but only until midnight on Christmas.

Baltimore loves "Grease," so Paramount has brought it here in a "sing-along" edition. At least that's the studio's story. For weeks it's been running an online promotion asking fans of the 1978 musical smash to vote for it to come to their city. With 1,414 demands to date — whoops, I just checked, make that 1,415 — Baltimore has ranked #3 in requests for the film out of 3,617 markets in the running. "Grease" opens Friday at the Cinemark Egyptian . It's the perfect midsummer gift for hons who wanted to sashay like the Pink Ladies or be good and look great in leather like Olivia Newton-John.

Never leave home without your temporal shield.Voyager has one. And it needs it to survive some manipulative time-space shenanigans when the crew confronts the new bad boys on the block, the Krenim, in tonight's overwrought episode of "Star Trek: Voyager" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54).The Krenim and their ruthlessly focused leader, Annorax (Kurtwood Smith), are using time-tinkering to try to return themselves to a period when they were the dominant race in their space neighborhood. Bad news for them: Voyager shows up and unwittingly throws a wrench into their well-calculated plans.
