The Greenbelt Arts Center is looking for plays or other activities to put on as we reopen the theater. We are seeking creative ways to do productions within the restrictions due to COVID.

Introducing our Skills Classes

One of the big stumbling blocks for a lot of people who would like to volunteer in community theatre is feeling like they just don’t have the knowledge needed. So, we will be presenting a series of free seminars to help with just that – running lights or sound, stage management, even auditioning!

Keep an eye on this space for signups for future planned sessions:

September – How to Put Your Best Foot Forward at an Audition

October – How to Put Together a Successful Proposal

November – Be the Boss! Stage Management 101

February – I Wanna Be a Producer!

Please note that these will be IN-PERSON events, and will require proof of vaccination against COVID-19, and all participants will need to wear masks the entire time they are in the facility.

If you have any questions, please contact VP Programs Pamela Northrup.

Twelve Angry Women

by Reginald Rose
directed by Ed Starr

Twelve Angry Women both tells a story and examines our society. The story is straightforward: twelve strangers must vote guilty or not guilty to decide the future of a young man charged with the murder of his father. Their verdict must be unanimous. The drama is played out in a claustrophobic jury room during an unbearable hot summer day. The environment is a crucible—a vessel that purifies through fire. Each of the jurors is forced to face herself—her life experiences, prejudices, personalities, and biases. Herein lies the ever-ascending drama of the play—the conflicts of every jury member within herself and with her fellow jurors as they examine the evidence.

Performances: August 26, 27, 28 & September 2, 3, 4, 9, 10

This will be a 70-minute performance.
