Peas, Pops, Thistles and Sunflowers: This Summer in Rockville Art and Performances

Performances will be held outside and in, throughout July and August in Rockville.

Rockville Musical Theatre presents “Once Upon a Mattress.” 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, July 1, 2, 8, 9, 15 and 16; 2 p.m. Sundays, July 10 and 17.

Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the classic tale “The Princess and the Pea” provides some side-splitting shenanigans. Prince Dauntless must wed by decree of his mother, but no princess can pass the queen’s impossible tests.

Tickets cost $26; $23, students and seniors.

Rockville Concert Band presents “Summer Evening of Pops.” 7 p.m. Sunday, July 10.

Bring your lawn chair and enjoy a free outdoor concert in Rockville Town Square, directed by Juan Gallastegui. Call 240-314-8681 after 5 p.m. in the case of inclement weather to check if the event is canceled.

Rockville Civic Ballet presents “Ballets of the Thistle.” 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 23 and 2 p.m. Sunday, July 24.

Old stories of trickery and wit, told anew, featuring “Macbeth” and “The Fairy Folk.” Directed by Eleanor Simpson and Erin Kwong.

Tickets are $17; $13 for children 12 and younger; and $13 for seniors 60 and older.

Meet the artists behind the varied media works of “Sunflower,” on display at the Glenview Mansion Art Gallery, 1:30-3:30 p.m. Sunday, July 31.

The exhibition will run from Tuesday, July 5 through Friday, Sept. 2.

The Americans with Disabilities Act-accessible gallery, on the second floor of Glenview Mansion is open 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday and closed on official city holidays.
