Opens October 20:

Beau Jest

by James Sherman
directed by Norma Ozur

Sarah's close and loving family would certainly object -- very loudly -- if they were to meet her choice of boyfriend. What to do, what to do? He's coming to celebrate Dad's birthday! Aha! Clever Sarah has chosen a "pretend" beau that will meet with everyone's approval! Or will he? This charming and delightful comedy may provide a solution to her dilemma.
WIth Anwar Al-Mallah, Win Britt, Shelley Rochester, Steven Rosenthal, Sarah Scott, and Tunde Sho

Auditions for Almost, Maine by John Cariani and directed by Bob Kleinberg will be held at the Greenbelt Community Center, room 114 on Monday October 16, and Tuesday October 17, at 7PM. with callbacks if necessary on Thursday October 19.

The story:
On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. In this whimsical approach to the joys and perils of romance, knees are bruised, hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend - almost - in this delightful midwinter night's dream.

Almost, Maine is comprised of 8 vignettes about love and the various emotions that can accompany it. These vignettes involve the various townspeople of the imaginary town of Almost, Maine, located in the wide open spaces of northern Maine, near Canada.

There are no specific characters to describe. This is an ensemble cast, and each cast member will play at least two separate roles. No accents please.

We are looking for 4 men and 4 women in their 30's and 40's to play the townspeople of Almost, Maine.

The show will be performed 4 weekends from January 26 - February 17, weekends at Greenbelt Arts Center.

Auditions for Return to the Forbidden Planet by Bob Carlton, directed by Jeffery Lesniak, with music direction by Chris Wells and choreography by Rikki Howie Lacewell, will be held Monday February 12, and Tuesday February 13. Watch this space for more information.


We are planning on upgrading to an actual lighting grid. This will remove the unsightly and unsafe extension cords from the ceiling. We will also be moving the loud lighting controllers from the audience area to backstage. There will be a large number of fixed outlets on the ceiling for use, which will greatly simplify rehanging lights when the stage configuration changes. It will make our facility more welcome to guest productions, and will be much safer for our lighting designers.

We have recently received a $5000 grant from the Greenbelt Community Foundation towards our ultimate goal of $16,000. This is in addition to other donations already raised. Please help us reach our goal.

All shows start at 8pm unless otherwise stated. For reservations or more information call 301-441-8770.
