We’re supposed to have some nice weather this weekend, so why on Earth would you want to stay in your house watching television when there is so much to do near you?!

I mean, the newest episode of “True Blood” doesn’t even come on until late Sunday night, so you’ve got the whole weekend! Here’s some stuff you might enjoy.

In Montgomery County, the Montgomery Playhouse has partnered with the city of Gaithersburg to present the 13th annual One Act Festival, starting today and running through July 27.

The festival presents two different evenings of one acts — Program A and Program B — so that all of the one acts can be shown. If you want to see all of the one acts in the festival ... trust me, you will ... then you’ll need to pick up two tickets. Since some of the plays have adult language and themes, the festival is not recommended for audiences under the age of 17.

Tickets are $16, but you can get a $2 discount if you live in Gaithersburg. (Hey, every little bit helps!) For more information, times and specific dates, visit or call 301-258-6394.

Your love life doesn’t have to end once you reach a certain age — didn’t you ever watch “Golden Girls?” In Prince George’s County, the Bowie Community Theatre continues its run of the farce, “Sex Please We’re Sixty,” at the Bowie Playhouse.

The hilarious show features women of a certain age who happen to “find” a miracle drug in the form of the female equivalent of the “little blue pill,” and an older ladies man who has bitten off way more than he can chew.

The play runs from now until July 26, but you’ll definitely want to get your tickets fast before it’s sold out. For more information, times and prices, visit or call 301-805-0219.

FREE BIRD!!!!! Ok, chances are if you’re younger than 30 you might not recognize the phrase. The call of the great Southern rockers, however, will not be ignored this weekend. Lynyrd Skynyrd, the group behind “Free Bird,” and “Sweet Home Alabama,” will take the stage Saturday with Bad Company (“Simple Man,” and “Don’t Let Me Down”) at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Va.

As part of the XL Tour, the powerhouse groups will be making their only stop in this area for the foreseeable future, so if you want to see them rock out, you might want to grab tickets while you can. Tickets vary in price from $33 to $123.65.

For more information, visit or call 703-754-6400.

Now go out there and have yourself a weekend!
