Attend the tale of Sweeney
Todd. The opening line should be enough to entice anyone to visit this dark
and bloody Sondheim event at The Heritage Players. The second in their annual “musical
theatre concert” series, this year’s devious stage offering is none other than
the bloody demon barber of fleet street. Sweeney
Todd, Directed by John Gary Pullen with Musical Direction by David Zajic,

You only have one weekend left to see My Fair Lady at Third Wall Productions and I recommend that you do! It is no secret that I dig this company of families, friends, and volunteers who gather out of love to perform three shows a season in the sanctuary of St. Thomas on Providence Road. One of the many ways that their stalwart leader, Mike Zellhofer, shows his generosity is by giving fresh directors an opportunity to work on dream shows.
You may know what you need, but to get what you want, better see that you keep what you have! And what Memorial Players has is an extraordinarily talented production of Stephen Sondheim’s Into The Woods. And what they want is for everyone in Baltimore to come and see it. So they need you to do exactly that! Running just two weekends, and as always at Memorial Players, a free performance for all in attendance,
Sail on! Sail on…great ship. Godspeed, Titanic. (in concert!) In a bold and ambitious move, and an unprecedented trend in the area’s community theatre scene, The Heritage Players launch the first “in-concert” musical production on their stage of the 2018 season with their floating city Titanic: In Concert. Directed by David Jennings with Musical Direction by David Zajic, this “concert-plus” experience is the ship of dreams for any community theatre.
Setting sail with an ambitious production, The Heritage Players is preparing to launch Titanic in Concert. Because of the piece’s ensemble nature, TheatreBloom wanted to explore the hopes and dreams of the cast and the musicians (as there are nearly 25 of each, making this an almost 50-performer theatrical experience.) Asking each of the players- both on stage and in the pit- about their dreams has proved to be a remarkable experience.
What do you want, Baltimore? Do you want the moon? Just say the word and George Bailey will throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Third Wall Productions seems to think that’s a pretty good idea. So they’re going to give you the moon— in the form a musical adaptation of Frank Capra’s Bedford Falls icon, called A Wonderful Life. With Books & Lyrics by Sheldon Harnick and Music by Joe Raposo,
What’s the buzz? Tell me what’s a-happening! What’s the buzz? Tell me what’s a-happening? Jesus Christ Superstar! That’s what’s a-happening! At Third Wall Productions— in temporary residence at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church in Towson— and it’s shaking down the bricks of the temple— well, the church, at any rate. Directed by Mike Zellhofer with Musical Direction by Daniel Plante, this iconic story of the man of the bible is existing in its finest and purest essence: a story told through song with Third Wall Productions.
Christopher Columbus! It’s astonishing! Little Women playing now through May 21, 2017 at Third Wall Productions in the Hamilton neighborhood of Baltimore City. Directed by Christine Thomas with Musical Direction by Eliza Van Kan and Orchestra Conduction by Andrew Zile, this American classic story, based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott, will have a fire burning inside your soul for the bond of sisterhood! An exceptionally performed community theatre production with talent that rivals touring companies that visit Charm City,
The papas! The mammas! The daughters! The sons! They’re all there as tradition would dictate— but! This isn’t your grandfather’s Fiddler on the Roof happening as Third Wall Productions approaches its one-year anniversary! Directed by Lance Bankerd, with Musical Direction by Edward Berlett, this reimagined production of a time-weathered classic is an innovative look at how the flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all. Pulling the production out of the dreary,
I’ll tell you a tale of the bottomless blue, and it’s hey— to Glyndon Area Players— heave-ho! Look out, folks, a mermaid be waiting for you in mysterious fathoms below! Not just one mermaid, but a dozen or so. And one wicked sea witch. Oh, and a cantankerous crustacean. And a lovesick guppy. And a prince! And so much more if you’ll just plunge in and take the journey with GAP for their 19th season as they present Disney’s The Little Mermaid for the summer of 2016.
Are you certain what you wish is what you want? What you want is to have a moment in the woods. And that moment can be had at Reisterstown Theatre Project this April as they present Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods, but remember that opportunity is not a lengthy visitor and you shall need to move quickly if you wish to go into the woods with RTP for all of the dark and twisted realities that come after “happily ever after.” Directed by Eric Besbris with Musical Direction by Matt Elky and Lynn Graham,
Wolfpack Theatre Company once again takes on troubling social issues with their World Premiere production of the new play Forsaken Angels, written by the company’s Founding Artistic Director, William Dean Leary. Now playing at the Greenbelt Arts Center for a limited engagement, this is a raw play about child sex-trafficking. There are no heroes. There refuse to be victims. There are only the survivors and the dead. But what does survival even mean if the spirit is dead?
