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

The Music Theater Intensive at Laurel Mill Playhouse presents Fame! Jr. and a Kids’ Cabaret

Following the international acclaim of the hit motion picture, television series and stage show, Fame The Musical JR. is nothing short of a global phenomenon. Fame JR. features a high-energy, contemporary pop score (which includes the hit title song) and a touching coming-of-age story.

Set during the last years of New York City’s celebrated High School for the Performing Arts in the early 1980s, Fame JR. is the bittersweet, but ultimately inspiring, story of a diverse group of students who commit to four years of grueling artistic and academic work. With candor, humor and insight, the show explores the issues that confront many young people today.

Produced by special arrangement with Music Theatre, International. Performances run weekends from Friday August 2, 2019 through Sunday August 18, 2019 with Friday and Saturday evening performances at 8 p.m. Tickets are $22 for general admission.

The epic struggle between good and evil comes to life on stage in the musical phenomenon, Jekyll & Hyde.

An evocative tale of two men — one, a doctor, passionate and romantic; the other, a terrifying madman — and two women — one, beautiful and trusting; the other, beautiful and trusting only herself — both women in love with the same man and both unaware of his dark secret. A devoted man of science, Dr. Henry Jekyll is driven to find a chemical breakthrough that can solve some of mankind’s most challenging medical dilemmas. Rebuffed by the powers that be, he decides to make himself the subject of his own experimental treatments, accidentally unleashing his inner demons along with the man that the world would come to know as Mr. Hyde.
