Now is the time seize the day! Or in this case, “Carpe scaena!” And seize the stage like they did! Street Lamp Productions presentation of Disney’s Newsies, Directed and Choreographed by Bambi Johnson, is well worth the drive to Rising Sun, MD. I reckon it may be a bit out of the way for some Baltimore City folk, (Admittedly, had my mother not lived in Colora for over eleven years, I may not have known about it either.) but I promise you it’s worth the trip.
Are you where you want to be and who you want to be and doing what you always said you would? Tidewater Players, the resident theatre company of Havre de Grace, is where they want to be and who they want to be and doing what they always said they would! Making a bold move by opening their 2018/2019 season with a politically charged production of Chess (the musical in concert), Tidewater Players stands to set the tone for their season with this shocking opening gambit.
“You work real hard and the pays real low… and every hour goes oh so slow… and at the end of the day there’s nowhere to go…” but to Cockpit in Court’s production of Avenue Q! This raunchy and hilarious musical by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx is a modern adult take on the classic Sesame Street formula: adorable puppets living their day-to-day lives… It just so happens that these puppets live in the real world,
In a time where our students are facing issues with identity, popularity, socializing, and acceptance on an almost minute-by-minute basis, a show like Heathers, where each character openly discusses their role in the social environment of high school, is poignant, relevant, and necessary.

Based on the 1980’s cult-movie of the same name,
If you’ve brains in your head and you’ve feet in your shoes
Then hurry up quick! There’s no time to lose!
For two hours of whimsy! For two hours of fun!
You must take a journey up to Rising Sun!
There’s a little black box theatre there, tucked away in a corner
And if you need a great show, they’re what the doctor ordered!
Milburn Stone Theatre’s got no troubles, life is the bubbles under the sea! They’ve got the spirit, you’ve got to hear it, and yes it’s hotter under their water— why who better to bring the magic of Disney to the main stage than the theatre’s new Artistic Director Bambi Johnson? Opening up a sensational production of Disney’s The Little Mermaid, with music and lyrics by Howard Ashman, Glenn Slater, and Alan Menken,
There is life outside your apartment, I know it’s hard to conceive. But there is life outside your apartment! And you’re only gonna see it if you leave! There is cool shit to do, but it can’t come to you, and who knows, dude, you might even score— tickets to Phoenix Festival Theater Company’s production of Avenue Q if you’re lucky! For a limited two-weekend engagement, the zany Off-Broadway musical sensation is eking out a home on Thomas Run Road and is providing barrels full of laughter for everyone in attendance.
