It’s the final day of spring recess so make it count, kids.
• The Hampstead Stage Company, a national-touring children’s theater group from Barnstead, NH, presents the children’s classic “The Wizard of Oz” at 2 p.m. in the Assembly Room of the Belmont Public Library. The 50-minute play is performed by two actors in full period costume, each playing several roles with emphasis on audience participation. This sounds like fun for kids AND parents.
• Celebrate the Earth and make a fun project out of recyclable materials at the “Recycle, Reuse, Reduce” open workshop at Paprika Kids at 404 Trapelo Rd (on the same block as the Studio Cinema) from 4 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Bring a plastic bottle and Paprika Kids will provide the rest of the materials. Registration is required for this event so go on-line or call 617-993-3431.
• Belmont High School’s varsity baseball and softball teams will be in morning action today as both home games will begin at 10 a.m. vs Woburn High.
• On this day in 1792, La Marseillaise – the French national anthem – is composed by Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle.
