(Nov. 24-30) We're not in Kansas, anymore. We're in Silver Spring.

There's no place like home this long weekend, but if you get a little restless the AFI Silver in Silver Spring screens The Wizard of Oz tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday. The theater's also celebrating the release of the new Muppets movie with a look back at the legacy of Jim Henson on the big screen. Labyrinth, The Muppet Christmas Carol and a number of others are showing for the next month.

(Nov. 25-Dec. 31) Master Marionettes

If you don't get your fix of puppets in Silver Spring, The Puppet Company at Glen Echo Park opens The Nutcracker tomorrow. The annual presentation features marionettes and larger-than-life costume characters.

(Nov. 25-Jan 1) You, Nero

You, Nero opens tomorrow too. Arena Stage's resident playwright Amy Freed penned the farce about antiquity's most famous debaucher. A playwright within the play attempts to save Rome from collapse with a work of theater that champions virtue over vice.
