Hairspray, strange magic and milkshake brings all the kids to the yard.

(July 13-August 1) HAIRSPRAY

If the local CVS isn't quite hacking it for hairspray these days, you can find the genuine article at Toby's Dinner Theater in Columbia, Maryland. Audiences are spending an evening in 1960s Baltimore during the run of the musical Hairspray through August 1st as the lovable, plus-size protagonist Tracy Turnblad does her best to take the throne on a TV dance program without mussing her coif.

(July 14-August 8) STRANGE MAGIC

From Charm City to the City of Angels, Studio Theatre rocks the house during the play Passing Strange, opening tomorrow and running through August 8th in Northwest D.C. The rock concert-cum-musical explores the essence of "sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll" through the tumultuous travels of a young black Angeleno artist.

(July 14) MILKSHAKE BRINGS ALL THE KIDS TO THE YARD

And if you want the rock, without the sex and drugs, Strathmore has a family-friendly event tomorrow evening. The Grammy-nominated musicians of Milkshake bring their infectious moppet melodies to North Bethesda for a free outdoor concert at 7. A mini street circus kicks off at 5:30, if you want to clown around before the show.
