Virtual theatre experiences will be offered every Thursday at 7:30p.m. beginning April 23 and continuing until we can be together again.
Included will be pre-recorded performances, live staged readings, and Studio B open stage nights where all are welcome. The purpose of Studio B is to allow for open collaboration and the development of new theatre and new talent.
We’re also working on a Curbside Cabaret event—stay tuned!

The short plays are sweet, funny, suspenseful, and thought provoking. Performed in series, they provide a relevant insight into human relationships.
The cast features David Anctil, Al Bhatt, Elizeth Brito, Mailyn Brito, Emma Burke-Covitz, Sarah Denn, Sean Latasa, and Noah Liebowitz.

Thurs. 8/20—Staged reading of “The Monroe Doctrine” by Mark Scharf
What does success mean in America? What does it mean when you don't make it? It is Memorial Day weekend at Real Monroe's trailer home on Hog Island on Maryland's eastern shore. He attempts to gather his family to meet the wishes of his father, a Korean War veteran and assisted living facility refugee. Expectations and reality collide leaving Real scrambling for solid ground in a shifting landscape of obligations and power. The play can be thought of as an elegy to the lost place of the artist in the world and to twentieth-century versions of masculinity, the ideal now which is ever-changing like a shapeshifter with amnesia.
Cast list to be announced.
Thurs. 8/27—There will be no Virtual Thursday this week. Instead, we will present a special subscribers-only performance of American Son by Christopher Demos-Brown on Saturday, 8/29 at 4pm (rain date 8/30), directed by Todd Santa Maria, starring Jaime Guite, Aaron Kaplan, Tommy Ovitt, Brian Edward
