In Theatreworks USA’s musical version of “Skippyjon Jones,” a small kitten lives out his big dreams by posing as a fearless dog who sword fights. The play, best for ages 4 and older, will be presented at the Alden Theatre at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Tickets are $15 and the theater is at 1234 Ingleside Ave. in McLean. For information or tickets, call 703-790-0123 or visit the theater’s Web site.

And for a night out with the kids — but not really with them — Woolly Mammoth Theatre is offering on-site babysitting during three upcoming performances of “In the Middle of No One.”
