Since its formation in 2008, the Baltimore Annex Theater Group has made a habit of injecting whimsical works with psychedelic flair. The group’s previous adaptations include funny, mind-bending takes on The Point, Fantastic Planet and Space Ghost: Nightmare Planet. This time, four members of the Baltimore troupe are going Biblical. Their performance of Salome using multimedia montage, elaborate puppetry and innovative stagecraft will make at least one head roll — John the Baptist’s. And if King Herod isn’t your kind of despot, Philly-based theater troupe PuppeTyranny open the night with the most enchanting abuses of authority.
Fri., Aug. 17, 8 p.m., $5-$7, Little Berlin, 2430 Coral St., littleberlin.org.
