    ● In the KID Museum area, crank the lever and watch the gears of a giant automaton produce light and sound; try out kid-created pinball; connect pipes for a super-sized ball run (called “Pipe Dream”); and play with a robotic balloon pop (aka "Bot Pop"). KID Museum will also be running free coding jams for kids.
    ● Pet PARO, an advanced therapeutic robot, which looks like a cuddly baby seal. Presented by the Japanese Science and Technology Agency, the seal can respond to the sound of your voice or touch through audio and tactile sensors.

    ● Music Discovery Lab will provide instruction on playing hand-crafted musical instruments. No experience is necessary to explore sound in this musical petting zoo.

    September 26, 2018  7:45 pm - 9:45 pm
    Mulitz-Gudelsky Theatre Lab, 2001 Olney Sandy Spring Rd, Olney, MD 20832, USA

    The winner of the 2018 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy is a delightfully clever mashup of  the political gamesmanship of The West Wing with a war of the sexes that feels straight out of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. Set in a member of Parliament’s district office, this wildly witty comedy is about the ups and downs of left-wing British politics over the past twenty-five years. Unfolding over decades, this wickedly funny clash of values and class reflects a shifting political landscape in the heartland that echoes similar developments in America as progressives seek the road back to power. Playwright James Graham is one of the U.K.’s hottest playwrights who recently had three separate works (including Labour of Love) running concurrently on the West End.

  • Home Before Sunset-Celebration of a Rural Community. An exhibit by the Countryside Artisans

    September 27, 2018
    Sandy Spring Museum, 17901 Bentley Rd, Sandy Spring, MD 20860, USA

    In 1814, the Quakers built their meeting house in Sandy Spring village. A six-mile radius from the Sandy Spring Meeting House defined that rural community, as this was the farthest members of the Meeting could travel to and from the meeting house by horse or carriage in one day, arriving home before sunset.

    Today, we can travel farther than six miles in one day and still be home by sunset, but the foundation of a rural community still lies within that day trip. The Countryside Artisans of Maryland, a group of artists that live in the countryside within a day’s drive, brings that rural community back to life. Wind your way through the exhibit and experience this rural way of life and community.

    Meet the Artists Reception, Sat., Oct. 6, 2:00-4:00pm

  • Olney Theatre: Labour of Love

    September 27, 2018  7:45 pm - 9:45 pm
    Mulitz-Gudelsky Theatre Lab, 2001 Olney Sandy Spring Rd, Olney, MD 20832, USA

    The winner of the 2018 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy is a delightfully clever mashup of  the political gamesmanship of The West Wing with a war of the sexes that feels straight out of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. Set in a member of Parliament’s district office, this wildly witty comedy is about the ups and downs of left-wing British politics over the past twenty-five years. Unfolding over decades, this wickedly funny clash of values and class reflects a shifting political landscape in the heartland that echoes similar developments in America as progressives seek the road back to power. Playwright James Graham is one of the U.K.’s hottest playwrights who recently had three separate works (including Labour of Love) running concurrently on the West End.

  • Olney Theatre: Labour of Love

    October 3, 2018  7:45 pm - 9:45 pm
    Mulitz-Gudelsky Theatre Lab, 2001 Olney Sandy Spring Rd, Olney, MD 20832, USA

    The winner of the 2018 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy is a delightfully clever mashup of  the political gamesmanship of The West Wing with a war of the sexes that feels straight out of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. Set in a member of Parliament’s district office, this wildly witty comedy is about the ups and downs of left-wing British politics over the past twenty-five years. Unfolding over decades, this wickedly funny clash of values and class reflects a shifting political landscape in the heartland that echoes similar developments in America as progressives seek the road back to power. Playwright James Graham is one of the U.K.’s hottest playwrights who recently had three separate works (including Labour of Love) running concurrently on the West End.

    September 26 - October 28

    With songs like "Some Enchanted Evening," "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair," and "Bali Ha’i," South Pacific is one of the most beloved of American musicals. Set on a remote Pacific island during World War II, South Pacific gave us the unforgettable love story between nurse Nellie Forbush and French expatriate Emile de Becque, a love threatened by war, as well as the dark corners of Nellie’s soul. Rodgers and Hammerstein’s 1950 Pulitzer Prize-winner was ahead of its time with its unflinching look at racism and prejudice that maintains its relevance today.

    City Joins Muddy Branch Alliance for Lands Green Waters Clean Butterfly & Bay Friendly Garden Tour

    The City of Gaithersburg is joining the Muddy Branch Alliance for a free self-guided tour for those interested in butterfly and Bay friendly gardening on Saturday, October 6, 2018, from 9 a.m. to noon. The tour is intended to showcase the range of project types that support butterflies and birds, beautify the landscape, and help restore the watershed by managing stormwater runoff.

    In addition to Constitution Gardens Park, the tour features Woodland Hills Homeowners Association, Epworth Church, Pleasant View Historic Site, and a private home.

Gaithersburg staff will also be on hand at Constitution Gardens Park to provide information about rebate programs that are available for those interested in adding stormwater management practices to their properties.

    “We want to showcase these gardens across our community, so people can see what their neighbors are doing to help keep our local waters and the Chesapeake Bay clean, while making their backyards and public areas beautiful areas to live and play. Our goal is to see these conservation gardens in every neighborhood, which will make a real difference in the quality of the water we drink and play in.” says Tracy Rouleau, President of the Muddy Branch Alliance.

    Maps and site information will be provided at Constitution Gardens Park and will be available online at www.muddybranch.org by October 5.

    The tour is funded by the Chesapeake Bay Trust with support from the City of Gaithersburg and the Muddy Branch Alliance.

    October 6, 2018  2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
    Sandy Spring Museum, 17901 Bentley Rd, Sandy Spring, MD 20860, USA

    In 1814, the Quakers built their meeting house in Sandy Spring village. A six-mile radius from the Sandy Spring Meeting House defined that rural community, as this was the farthest members of the Meeting could travel to and from the meeting house by horse or carriage in one day, arriving home before sunset.

    Today, we can travel farther than six miles in one day and still be home by sunset, but the foundation of a rural community still lies within that day trip. The Countryside Artisans of Maryland, a group of artists that live in the countryside within a day’s drive, brings that rural community back to life. Wind your way through the exhibit and experience this rural way of life and community.

    Meet the Artists Reception, Sat., Oct. 6, 2:00-4:00pm

  • Round House Theatre: How I learned to Drive

    October 10, 2018  7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
    Round House Theatre, 4545 East West Highway, Bethesda, MD 20814, USA

    Paula Vogel’s chronicle of one woman’s journey to break the cycle—and silence—of sexual abuse is a heartbreaking, sardonic, and uncomfortably funny exploration of the complicated relationships between victims, offenders, and enablers. Li’l Bit’s “education” at the hands of her Uncle Peck began when she was just 11 years old. As an adult survivor, she takes the stage to unravel the tangled roadmap of emotions and memories that paved the way for her to reclaim her narrative. Amber Paige McGinnis makes her Round House directorial debut with one of the most resonantly powerful plays in the modern American canon, with a message that is still all too relevant in this pivotal #MeToo moment in our history.

  • Olney Theatre: Labour of Love

    October 10, 2018  7:45 pm - 9:45 pm
    Mulitz-Gudelsky Theatre Lab, 2001 Olney Sandy Spring Rd, Olney, MD 20832, USA

    The winner of the 2018 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy is a delightfully clever mashup of  the political gamesmanship of The West Wing with a war of the sexes that feels straight out of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. Set in a member of Parliament’s district office, this wildly witty comedy is about the ups and downs of left-wing British politics over the past twenty-five years. Unfolding over decades, this wickedly funny clash of values and class reflects a shifting political landscape in the heartland that echoes similar developments in America as progressives seek the road back to power. Playwright James Graham is one of the U.K.’s hottest playwrights who recently had three separate works (including Labour of Love) running concurrently on the West End.

    Performances:

  • Round House Theatre: How I learned to Drive

    October 18, 2018  7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
    Round House Theatre, 4545 East West Highway, Bethesda, MD 20814, USA

    Paula Vogel’s chronicle of one woman’s journey to break the cycle—and silence—of sexual abuse is a heartbreaking, sardonic, and uncomfortably funny exploration of the complicated relationships between victims, offenders, and enablers. Li’l Bit’s “education” at the hands of her Uncle Peck began when she was just 11 years old. As an adult survivor, she takes the stage to unravel the tangled roadmap of emotions and memories that paved the way for her to reclaim her narrative. Amber Paige McGinnis makes her Round House directorial debut with one of the most resonantly powerful plays in the modern American canon, with a message that is still all too relevant in this pivotal #MeToo moment in our history.

  • Olney Theatre: Labour of Love

    October 18, 2018  7:45 pm - 9:45 pm
    Mulitz-Gudelsky Theatre Lab, 2001 Olney Sandy Spring Rd, Olney, MD 20832, USA

    The winner of the 2018 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy is a delightfully clever mashup of  the political gamesmanship of The West Wing with a war of the sexes that feels straight out of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. Set in a member of Parliament’s district office, this wildly witty comedy is about the ups and downs of left-wing British politics over the past twenty-five years. Unfolding over decades, this wickedly funny clash of values and class reflects a shifting political landscape in the heartland that echoes similar developments in America as progressives seek the road back to power. Playwright James Graham is one of the U.K.’s hottest playwrights who recently had three separate works (including Labour of Love) running concurrently on the West End.

    Performances:
    September 26 - October 28
    Wed, Thur , Fri, Sat | 7:45pm
