The first rule of singing is to get those rafters ringing! And you can bet all the dollars in the collection plate that if Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre had rafters they would surely be ringing with all the wonderful singing that’s coming out of their current production of Sister Act. They’d raise the roof— if they had one— with the joyous noise these sensational sisters are making, under the fine Direction of Clare Shaffer and Musical Direction of Paige Rammelkamp.
525,600 minutes— that’s how you measure a last year on earth. And Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre is measuring the second slot of their 50th Anniversary season with their production of Rent, which is currently celebrating its 20th Anniversary of debuting on Broadway. Directed by Andy Scott, with Musical Direction Paige Austin Rammelkamp, this moving and evocative musical about real life in New York City circa the early 90’s is more relevant now than ever in a world that cannot seem to realize there is no day but today.
