Reading: The stories of Beatrix Potter 
The greatest testament to the storytelling prowess of English writer Beatrix Potter is that even with today's myriad options for nighttime reading, parents are still relying on a series of animal stories written more than a century ago to put their children to sleep. But as has been proved in Britain, most notably by the Royal Ballet and the BBC, Potter's stories need not be read only at bedtime. The Puppet Company at Glen Echo Park proves this to be true stateside with live performances of Potter stories "Two Bad Mice," "The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher," and the critically acclaimed classic "The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck." Through Oct. 9 at Glen Echo Park, 7300 MacArthur Blvd., Glen Echo, MD. Phone: 301-634-5380. Web: http://www.thepuppetco.org/
