Location: Greenbelt Community Center Gymnasium 15 Crescent Rd.

Description: In the boarded-up building of the now-closed School For Super-Heroes, alumni of the school’s drama club gather for a secret reunion – and a meeting of the underground Resistance to the repressive Regime. The founders of the club are missing, but they’ve left behind a tantalizing clue: It’s a partial script, telling the story of Theseus, the legendary hero and founder of democracy. Now, new leaders must step forward to lead the club and bring the script to life, mounting an audacious production that may be the last hope to reopen the realm of storytime, rescue the missing heroes, and undermine the Regime’s despotic power.

Tickets: $5; advance sales at 301-397-2208
