Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Online live performance.

After the sudden and tragic death of her younger sister Tilly, Agnes Evans discovers a mysterious fantasy gaming notebook that offers clues into her sister’s life. Risking her own real-life relationships, Agnes enters the action-packed world of Dungeons and Dragons brimming with dominatrix warrior women, ogres and fairies to understand Tilly’s world and mourn her death. This touching story draws on nerd culture and queer representation to explore themes of sisterhood, loss and acceptance.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, TDPS has found creative solutions to keep teaching, learning, and creating in an online environment. Originally scheduled for the Kogod Theatre, She Kills Monsters has moved to Zoom and the livestream of this online performance will be on Thursday, May 7 at 8PM. The audience will experience the play in real time as it is performed by actors in their homes.

Playwright Qui Nguyen has given his full support and blessing to reimagine this play for the digital world.

“Nguyen is a refreshing, break-the-rules writer—he has a ready embrace of pop culture, high-school speak and ‘High Fidelity’ cool, and he also has a mission to redeem gaming geeks everywhere….” — Chicago Tribune

To give some support to the Greenbelt Arts Center in this time of uncertainty, and to give our performers a creative outlet, we have started a “Virtual Cabaret” group on Facebook. On Monday mornings, a theme is posted for the week, and members are encouraged to post a video of themselves performing a song that fits the theme. Anyone is welcome to participate, or just to cheer on those who are performing.

Route 1 Mask Match seeks Costumers to Make Masks

Route 1 Mask Match seeks costumers to make masks

Email: route1maskmatch@gmail.com

Website: http://www.route1maskmatch.org

Hi, not sure if this is right for you, but I’m figuring some PG Theater folk who make costumes might be willing to pitch in on an effort to make masks for vulnerable people in the community. If you agree, we’d appreciate your sharing the following information:

Subject: Masks Needed for Vulnerable People & Essential Workers in Route 1 Communities

Do you sew? Are you making masks? Route 1 Mask Match is a new effort to get masks into the hands of vulnerable people and those who must interact with large populations in the Route 1 communities, from Mount Rainier to Beltsville.

Already, there are already requests for more than 900 masks from seniors groups, individuals, and others up and down Route 1, and more requests are expected. Route 1 Mask Match is committed to ensuring the mask collection and distribution process is handled in a safe manner consistent with social distancing. Depots to drop off completed masks, as well as fabric and other mask-making materials, are being set up throughout the area.

To find drop-off locations, as well as patterns and other mask-making guidance, visit http://www.Route1MaskMatch.org and follow Route 1 Mask Match on Facebook. The website also includes helpful information about proper use and cleaning of cloth face masks.

The CDC now recommends that people wear cloth face masks while outside of the home together with social distancing techniques to slow the spread of the coronavirus and COVID-19, the disease it causes. As of April 14, the Maryland Department of Health reports more than 2,350 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Prince George’s County and 72 deaths. Cloth masks are effective because they reduce the risk of transmitting virus-carrying droplets, which can be spread long before a person realizes they are infected.

Cancelled

Cancelled

As of March 16, 2020, all amateur theater productions in Prince George’s County are cancelled or postponed as our community struggles with the coronavirus.

Stay home. Stay safe.

When this is all over there will be more shows to go to.

Until then, please consider donating to the theater of your choice any money you were planning to spend on tickets. Our small, non-profit and volunteer theaters won’t last long without any money coming in.
