Laurel Mill Playhouse, located at 508 Main Street in historic Laurel, MD., is proud to present World War II Radio Christmas by Pat Kruis Tellinghusen presented by special arrangement with Playscripts. Directed by Michael Hartsfield and produced by Maureen Rogers, this radio play opens Friday, December 17, 2021 and will be just for one weekend only.

This moving holiday show recreates the experience of attending a recording of a 1940s radio show broadcast on Christmas Eve during World War II. Using period songs and stories inspired by actual veterans, World War II Radio Christmas transports the audience to another time, brought to you by such generous sponsors as Vaseline Hair Tonic and Ipana Toothpaste. An inspiring look at strength in the face of hardship, this play is a reminder of the importance of coming together for the holidays. – Playscripts

Moonlight and Magnolias at Laurel Mill Playhouse, Feb 21-Mar 15

Moonlight and Magnolias at Laurel Mill Playhouse, Feb 21-Mar 15

Laurel Mill Playhouse presents
Moonlight and Magnolias
by Ron Hutchinson
Directed by Ilene Chalmers
Produced by Maureen Rogers

Friday February 21, 2020 through Sunday March 15, 2020
Matinee performances on March 8 and March 15 at 2:00 P.M.

Location: Laurel Mill Playhouse

It’s 1939 and Hollywood is abuzz. Legendary producer David O. Selznick has shut down production of his new epic, Gone with the Wind, a film adaptation of Margaret Mitchell’s novel. The screenplay, you see, just doesn’t work. So what’s an all-powerful movie mogul to do? While fending off the film’s stars, gossip columnists and his own father-in-law, Selznick sends a car for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and pulls formidable director Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard of Oz. Summoning both to his office, he locks the doors, closes the shades, and on a diet of bananas and peanuts, the three men labor over five days to fashion a screenplay that will become the blueprint for one of the most successful and beloved films of all time.

Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Publishing Company. Performances run weekends from Friday February 21, 2020 through Sunday March 15, 2020 with Friday and Saturday evening performances at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 for general admission.

Lost in the fog, a stranger seeks refuge in a nearby house, only to find a man shot dead and his wife standing over him with a smoking gun. But the woman’s dazed confession is anything but convincing, and the unexpected guest decides to help. Remarkably, the police clues point to a man who died two years previously, but as the ghosts of a past wrong begin to emerge, a tangled web of lies reveals family secrets and chilling motives, where the real murderer turns out to be the greatest mystery of all.
