(Dec. 11) GAMER SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA The University of Maryland's Gamer Symphony Orchestra caters to people who prefer a quiet evening at home with the controllers, but chances are they'll have some diehards come out to the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center in College Park on Saturday. The orchestra's fall concert promises selections spanning all systems, including compositions from Final Fantasy X, Mega Man and Donkey Kong Country.

(Dec. 8-Jan. 9) A GIRL'S GUIDE TO WASHINGTON POLITICS Chicago's Second City is a breeding ground for comedic talent. The troupe returns to D.C.'s Wooly Mammoth with A Girl's Guide to Washington Politics. The production satirizes some of Washington's most influential, powerful and polarizing women through early January.

(Dec. 11-12) DANCE-OFF If you like powerful, but not so polarizing women, there's the Eureka Dance Festival 2010 at Dance Place in Northeast this weekend. D.C.-area choreographers premiere their latest works with the help of friends, including local folksters The Sweater Set.

Background music: Mario 64 by Gamer Symphony Orchestra
