This highly acclaimed musical develops the ancient and distinguished game of chess into a metaphor for romantic rivalries and East-West political intrigue. The principal pawns form a love triangle: the loutish American Grandmaster, the earnest Russian champion, and the Hungarian-American female chess second, who arrives at the international championships with the American but falls for the Russian. From Tyrol to Thailand the players, lovers, politicians, CIA and KGB make their moves to the pulse of this monumental rock score. Several numbers, including “One Night in Bangkok” and “I Know Him So Well”, are international hits.

We welcome non-traditional casting – all roles are open to all races and ethnic diversities!

Singin’ in the Rain by 2nd Star Productions at the Bowie Playhouse, Sep 21-Oct 20

Singin’ in the Rain by 2nd Star Productions at the Bowie Playhouse, Sep 21-Oct 20

Singin’ in the Rain
September 21 – October 20, 2018
Directed by Allison Erskine
Music Direction by Sandy Melson Griese
Choreography by Andrew Gordon

2nd Star Productions at the Bowie Playhouse

The “Greatest Movie Musical of All Time” is faithfully and lovingly adapted for the stage. Singin’ in the Rain has all the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline – the starlet, the leading man and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers! In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item but, behind the scenes, things aren’t always as they appear on the big screen! Meanwhile, Lina’s squeaky voice might be the end of her career in “talking pictures” without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her. Filled with every memorable moment from the film and a downpour of unforgettable songs, Singin’ in the Rain is a guaranteed hit!

Tickets for shows at Bowie Playhouse are $22.00 for General Admission, $19.00 for seniors (60 and over) and full time students, and $12 for Children 11 and under. Buy tickets here.

Black Crown at the Bowie CPA, Sep 8

Black Crown at the Bowie Bowie Center for the Performing Arts, Sep 8

The Shelby Baggott Company presents:
Black Crown
Saturday, September 8, 2018 at 7:30pm

Location: Bowie Center for the Performing Arts.

Black Crown was written to inspire youth to reach their full potential and to prevent acts of domestic violence. This play was inspired by NeShante Davis and Chloe Davis-Green whose lives were taken in a grievous act of domestic violence. We intend for this play to serve as a domestic violence prevention tool by educating spectators to identify toxic relationships. The death of this Bowie State alumnae and her toddler impacted Bowie State University, as well as the Prince George’s County community. This county needs emotional healing that only the arts can provide. We plan to use this theatrical platform to create social change in honor of NeShante Davis and Chloe Davis-Green.

Tickets: $25. Click here.

A Piece of My Heart
by Shirley Lauro
Directed by: Cody Jones
at the Cresthill Church, 6510 Laurel Bowie Rd., Bowie, MD 20715

Tuesday, August 28, 2018

Three roles are still open.

Auditions will be held at the Cresthill Church, 6510 Laurel Bowie Rd., Bowie, MD 20715 on Tuesday, August 28th 2018 starting at 7:00 PM. Rehearsals will be held at a local church in Bowie, MD on Tuesdays and Thursdays with a third day added as rehearsals progress. Please provide any conflicts you may have from auditions through November 18th . For additional information, please visit our website at http://www.bctheatre.com.

Performances are scheduled to run from November 2-24, 2018.

A Piece of My Heart provides an absorbing and moving experience about a tumultuous period in American history—the Vietnam War. It is a powerful, true drama about six women who went to Vietnam: five nurses and a country western singer booked by an unscrupulous agent to entertain the troops. The play portrays the courageous story of each young woman as she struggles through the experiences that leave scars yet triumphs as a result of their tour through the war-torn nation. With the backdrop of the memorial wall in Washington, A Piece of My Heart is a salute to the men and women who represented our country during a divisive era.
