Now Playing:

Angel Street

by Patrick Hamilton
directed by Pauline Griller-Mitchell

Angel Street (better known in the USA as Gaslight) takes place in 1880 in an old Victorian house in Pimlico, London. Mr Manningham is slowly trying to drive his wife, Mrs Manningham, insane (her mother died of insanity) by playing demonic tricks on her. Why? Because, very briefly, many years ago a murder took place in the house and the murderer was looking for some precious rubies which have never been found. One evening when Mr. Manningham is out a visitor calls - it is Inspector Rough who during the course of the evening convinces Mrs. Manningham that her husband is a maniacal killer. He enlists the aid of Elizabeth, the Manningham's housekeeper. The other character is Nancy, a young flirtatious parlor maid who sets her cap on Mr. Manningham.

with Michael Fisher, Susan Harper, Ruth Vernet, Alison Starr, Jeffrey Landou, and Frank Vernet

Congratulations to our GAC 2017 WATCH Winner:

Video Auditions for the role of 'Newscaster' in our upcoming production of Return to the Forbidden Planet are now being accepted.

To audition:

  • Video record yourself in front of a plain background, reading the passage below. You don't have to memorize it, but you should be familiar with the material.
  • Upload the video to google docs, send the link to the video to by March 17.

About the role: The Newscaster will be pre-recorded. You won't need to memorize, a teleprompter will be available, but you should be familiar with the material, which will be provided upon selection on March 18. (there are four sections, one full-page, two half-pages, and one quarter-page.) You'll attend one rehearsal on March 20th to finalize presentation, then attend one video production session on March 24th at 3PM to record the material. Therefore, you must be local to Greenbelt, and able to transport yourself to the area.

About the character: What we're looking for is a 1960's era American news anchor. Formal, clear in speech, yet friendly in nature. We will consider all ages (adult), races, and genders.

The dialogue to be recorded:

Two parents, both alike in dignity.
In outer space, where we our play locate,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
And on Forbidden Planet meet their fate.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A lovely star-borne daughter takes her life
Whose teenage crush and adolescent woes
Do drive her father mad and end his life.
The fearful passage of his death-marked love
And the continuance of her mother's rage,
Which but a monstrous end, naught could remove
Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage,
The which, if you with patient ears attend,
What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.


We have upgraded to an actual lighting grid. We have removed the unsightly and unsafe extension cords from the ceiling. We have also moved the loud lighting controllers from the audience area to backstage. There are now a large number of fixed outlets on the ceiling for use, which has greatly simplified rehanging lights when the stage configuration changes. It has made our facility more welcome to guest productions, and is 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.
