Happy New Year! Friday Events Roundup.

Feb 04, 2011 10:06PM ● Published by Anonymous

In the Chinese lunar calendar, yesterday marked the beginning of the Year of the Rabbit. With that in mind, it’s time to hop into a brand new weekend of events.

For the Kids … Ever thought about taking your children to the opera? My guess is probably not. It’s time to change your tune. The Annapolis Opera is putting on a performance of Hansel and Gretel at the Maryland Hall Main Stage. With fairies, a witch and a house made of candy, the little ones are sure to be enticed. And it’s only 7 bucks, so you can bring the whole brood for less than the cost of a movie.

For the Grownups … If you’re looking for something a bit more adult, head to the Bowie Playhouse in White Marsh Park to check out Sordid Lives. This dark comedy is described by director John Nunemaker as “a bit racy.” The plot deals with the aftermath of the death of Peggy, the family matriarch, who dies in a tragic accident after tripping over her paramour’s wooden leg. Hilarity ensues in the name of infidelity, revenge and other family strife. It will make you feel grateful your family is not that crazy.

For the Whole Family … Enjoy the slightly warmer weather and celebrate Black History Month by taking an African American Heritage Tour downtown courtesy of Watermark Cruises and the Kunta Kinte-Alex Haley Foundation. If you’ve never noticed the memorial to the famous author of Roots at City Dock, it’s time you took this two-hour stroll to discover more about the city. You’ll also pay a visit to the Thurgood Marshall Memorial near the State House – something I need to check out myself.

And don’t forget that next weekend’s Valentine’s Day. Gentlemen, it’s time to buy those tickets and make those dinner reservations so you can stay out of the doghouse for another year.
