(May 14 & 15) BACH DOES BALLET The ballet is Bach as Spain's Compania Nacional de Danza presents Bach: Multiplicity at the Kennedy Center tonight and Saturday. This premiere dance company makes its District debut.

(May 14-May 23) MISTAKEN COMEDY And make no mistake about it, Shakespeare's fiercest farce meets the severity of Sophocles in Lumina Studio Theatre's staging of Comedy of Errors… at Colonus?. This youth company blends the Bard with Oedipus Rex in an erroneous, though comical performance this weekend and next at Round House Theatre Bethesda.

(May 15) PAINT PILGRIMAGE Modern-day pilgrims make the rounds in Baltimore as Charm City's folk art is honored and inspected during the Painted Screens Pilgrimage. This mode of front porch painting was born in 1913 - a documentary and tour through the original screened-in communities kick off Saturday morning at Creative Alliance on Eastern Avenue.

(May 15) ROCKET POWER But if you'd rather venture into the stratosphere, Team America’s Rocketry Challenge hosts finals all day Saturday at Great Meadow in The Plains, Virginia. Contestants in the world's largest rocket contest are shooting for the moon at this free event.
