Defending a

Twice told tales

The 2012 Fairy Ball on Paseo is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Saturday on the “Fairy Green” at NW 28 and Dewey. A popular event for children of all ages, the Fairy Ball inspires imagination and wonder. Children are encouraged to dress up as someone from the realm of Fairies. The evening begins with the young ones shaping flowers into crowns and wings to finish their costumes, so that at twilight, they can follow magical characters into a twinkling garden and dance to their heart's content. StarDanceSwan dancers beckon all characters to move in their own naturally expressive ways to the music of Steve McLinn. “The 2012 Fairy Ball” is a co-production of StarDanceSwan and the Paseo Arts Association.

For more information, call 525-2688 or go to www.thepaseo.com.

Inside the convent walls

Rose State College opens its 2012-13 season with a production of “Agnes of God.” John Pielmeier's drama focuses on a young novitiate who is accused of murdering her newborn child.

Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sept. 16 in the H.B. Atkinson Theatre, 6420 SE 15.
