Time Will Tell is a time-traveling story about Sally Jones, a present-day Greenbelt teenager who finds herself transported to 1937 Greenbelt, with all her modern ideas about gender equality intact. As she makes new friends and joins the cast of Greenbelt’s first high school musical, the sparks fly — especially between her and Tommy Martin, the handsome and earnest president of the Drama Club. Together, they learn that progress is an idea that advances with the times, but that love is never out of date. This funny, heart-warming show serves up a delectable slice of Greenbelt history, accompanied by the hit songs of the day. Greenbelters and their friends will love this crowd-pleasing musical, presented as a Greenbelt Legacy 80th Anniversary event.

Angel Street (better known in the USA as Gaslight) takes place in the late 1880s in an old Victorian house in Pimlico, London. Mr Manningham is slowly trying to drive his wife, Mrs Manningham, insane (her mother died of insanity) by playing demonic tricks on her. Why? Because, very briefly, many years ago a murder took place in the house and the murderer was looking for some precious rubies which have never been found. One evening when Mr. Manningham is out a visitor calls – it is Inspector Rough who during the course of the evening convinces Mrs. Manningham that her husband is a maniacal killer. He enlists the aid of Elizabeth, the Manningham’s housekeeper. The other character is Nancy, a young flirtatious parlor maid who sets her cap on Mr. Manningham.
