Out on Stage

The humidity may be rising this summer, but the Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre’s (ASGT) production of The Full Monty is bringing the sizzle. The ASGT, now in its 51st year, remains one of the Annapolis community’s artistic jewels. Having finished its recent production of the musical Sister Act, the ASGT is now tackling the rags-to-riches story The Full Monty. Set in Buffalo, New York, six unemployed steel workers are low on both cash and prospects. While spying on their wives at a girls’ night out, the men realize just how much the women enjoy watching male strippers and hatch a get-rich-quick scheme that is both daring and titillating.

J.M. Barrie, of Peter Pan fame, once said, “We are all failures – at least the best of us are.” Audiences can experience the triumphs and trials of the famed writer as Finding Neverland flies into Hippodrome Theatre this month. Performing from Tuesday, June 27th to Sunday, July 2nd, Finding Neverland is based on the Academy Award-winning film of the same name. The story follows J.M. Barrie as he summons the courage to become the writer– and the man– he yearns to be.

Broadway star and Columbia native Caroline Bowman returns to her roots performing as the narrator in Toby Dinner Theatre’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (running until August 27th). Bowman, who will be one of five veteran actresses to play the role of the narrator throughout the duration of the show’s run, will help to commemorate both the 45th year of the Columbia Center for Theatrical Arts (CCTA), as well as the 50th anniversary of the city of Columbia.

Tales of growing up black & gay

The Iron Crow Theatre’s much heralded production of Robert O’Hara’s BootyCandy will spice up the Baltimore theatre scene this June. Running from June 9th to 18th, BootyCandy is O’Hara’s semi-biographical subversive comedy which tells the story of Sutter, who is on an outrageous odyssey through his childhood home, his church, dive bars, motel rooms, and even nursing homes. O’Hara weaves together scenes, sermons, sketches, and daring meta-theatrics to create a kaleidoscope that interconnects to portray growing up gay and black.

F. Scott Black, the beloved Baltimore theatre icon, recently returned to the Baltimore theatre scene as director of the Cockpit in Court’s June performances of Arsenic & Old Lace. To commemorate Black’s return, the CCBC Essex theatre is to be renamed in his honor as the F. Scott Black Theatre.
