The folks at the Chesapeake Arts Center are starting 2007 with what they describe as "the best theater deal in town": four shows for $38 for center members and $42 for everyone else. The bargain prices, available through Jan. 21, earn a quick return on investment. The first show, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, opens tomorrow and closes Jan. 21. It will be followed in March by Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie, a sophisticated comedy by comedian Steve Martin in June and an original show in August, to be chosen from submissions to the 26th annual Baltimore Playwrights Festival.

Festival The National Continental Congress Festival will be held Wednesday through Saturday, Sept. 11-14, at 162 Conduit St. in Annapolis. Its theme is the 1786 Annapolis Convention, which led to the 1787 Constitutional Convention. During the festival, Annapolis will emulate what took place in 1786 by serving as the site of a national discussion of the challenges facing the United States following the Sept. 11 attacks and the war on terrorism. The festival will also commemorate the 1786 Convention and the pre-Constitution period, especially the years when Annapolis served as the first peacetime capital of the United States, acting as a bridge between the Revolution and the Constitution.

INSTEAD OF whitewashing the fence, he gave us Whitewatering. Now that the Clinton presidency is over, let's consider the American literary character William Jefferson Clinton most closely resembles. Our national imagination offers only one outstanding candidate, and I don't mean Joe Klein's anonymous portrait of the president in his novel, "Primary Colors." Forget about college courses featuring Clinton's favorite poet, Walt Whitman, and some of America's great novelists, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner.

Judging from their reaction, it seems that Tom Sawyer still enchants new generations of young fans. At least a fifth of the audience at Sunday's performance of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Chesapeake Arts Center's Studio Theatre were children. They frowned with concern as Tom witnessed a murder in the graveyard, snickered when his tattletale half-brother, Sid, got a reprimand from Aunt Polly and laughed openly when at his own funeral Tom pestered Sid by repeatedly touching his ankle from under a sofa.

Yesterday, the day he turned 77 years old, Charles I. Ecker had a piece of birthday cake and ducked all incoming flak. He was having a swell time. It was such a swell time that he got on the telephone and told a funny story to a newspaper guy he's known for quite a few years. "I went to the doctor for my physical," Ecker said. "Doctor said, `You're in such good shape, I bet you feel like a 30-year-old.' I told him, `Where is she?'" The story has the ring of sweetness coming from a man of Ecker's age and stature.
