(June 8-July 1) The Animals and Children Took to the Streets
British theater company 1927 is spending part of its summer at Northwest Washington’s Studio Theatre to stage The Animals and Children Took to the Streets. A mother and daughter wander through a dystopian metropolis with curtain twitchers, peeping toms, and the neighborhood wolf. Performers bring the neighborhood to life through interaction with projected animation and film. The play that owes as much to Charles Dickens as it does Tim Burtons opens this Saturday.

(June 5-Sept. 30) London Calling
Before the London Olympics kick off, you can familiarize yourself with a critical period in the city’s development with Open City: London 1500-1700, opening today at Washington’s Forger Shakespeare Library. The exhibit explores London’s transformation from a medieval town to a cultural metropolis with a variety of maps, artworks, and historical records.

(June 9) Going for gold
The Alexandria Harmonizers refuse to settle for silver this summer. The chorus presents Gold Medal A Capella Saturday night at George Mason University’s Center for the Performing Arts in Fairfax. Expect show tunes, pop hits, and some really shiny shirts.
