Coming Soon:


Greenbelt Arts Center presents the East Coast premiere of Quadrille: A Romantic Play Story and Script by Melynda Kiring, Directed by Stephen Foreman


  • 1 Self-Sufficient Woman Baker
  • 1 Nobleman in need of a Cook
  • 1 Sweet Young Lady
  • 1 Dashing Hero
Preheat to the year 1835. Mix the Baker and the Nobleman together until romance blossoms. For a little confusion, gently add the Sweet Young Lady into the mix. Sprinkle in a pinch of frustrated love, and then add a dash of Hero rushing in to save the day. Bake at 350 degrees for the length of one duel, or until ready to admit the truth. Serves them all right.

Quadrille is a delicious tale featuring romance, secret plots, good food, more secret plots, bad food, heroic duels, and plenty of perfectly prepared corn muffins.

Bon appetit!

Featuring Jim Adams, Jeannette Connors, Justin Diaz, Tyler Dos Santos, Michaela Haber, Michael Iacone, and Pamela Northrup

Auditions – The Children’s Hour

The Greenbelt Arts Center announces upcoming auditions for its production of Lillian Hellman’s The Children’s Hour, directed by Pauline Griller-Mitchell

The play, which premiered in 1934, was a professional success for the playwright, Lillian Hellman. Set in a private school for girls, the play explores how lying, bullying, and the insidious effect of slanderous innuendo can upend plans and lives.

Auditions will be held at the Greenbelt Arts Center, located at 123 Centerway, Greenbelt, MD, 20771, on Saturday, February 1, between 2:00 and 5:00 p.m. and on Sunday, February 2, starting at 7:00 p.m. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Callbacks, if necessary, will be held on Monday, February 3, at 7:00 p.m. Call the producer, Malca Giblin, at 301-864-3060, for more information.

Rehearsals will be held two nights and on Saturdays each week to start then three nights and Saturdays from mid-March, leading up to nine performances beginning on April 17 and ending on May 3. Be prepared to detail all conflicts you may have throughout the rehearsal and performance schedule.
