(October 26) BIG BAND HALLOWEEN A Big Band Pre-Halloween Scream, hosted by the University of Maryland School of Music, is at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center in College Park, Maryland, tonight at 7:30. The school's three spirited big bands join forces for a bewitching night of jazz, as the woodwinds howl, the brass wails and the percussion section goes "bump" in the night.

(October 26-November 29) FULL CIRCLE The cutting edge Woolly Mammoth Theatre provides theater to travel by as it presents Full Circle, opening tonight and running through November 29th. The story: two women launch a madcap chase to literally outrun the vultures of communism and capitalism in Eastern Germany. And when the Woolly Mammoth crew says "Full Circle," they're not kidding. The cast and audience travel throughout the theater during this unconventional experience. Comfortable shoes recommended.

(October 25) KIDS EURO FILM FEST The Kids Euro Festival Films comes to screens around town with movies of imagination, joy, and friendship. It's hosted by members of the European Union and local arts organizations through November 10th. The Fox and the Child by the French director of March of the Penguins tells the story of a friendship between a fox and a young girl. Mia and the Migoo is the animated quest of a girl for her father, all the while saving the Earth from ecological disaster.
