Jan. 28-Mar. 9: The Importance of Being Earnest
Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest is on stage through March 9 at Shakespeare Theatre Company in Northwest.

Jan. 28-Feb. 8: The Ballad of the Red Knight
This Friday through February 8 you can head to the Port City Playhouse in Alexandria to see The Ballad of the Red Knight, a fast-paced adventure comedy reminiscent of Shrek or The Princess Bride. Written and directed by Scott Courlander, this parody of the medieval fantasy genre follows a prince on a mission to save his kingdom from an evil nemesis.
