Time Will Tell at the Greenbelt Community Center, Mar 4-11

The 2018 Greenbelt Winter Youth Musical:
Time Will Tell: Teens and Tunes in Tugwell Town
Written and directed by Chris Cherry
Music Director: Stephan Brodd
Production Designer: Nicole DeWald

Saturday, March 3, 2018 at 7:00pm

Location: Greenbelt Community Center Gymnasium 15 Crescent Rd.

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 Together, they learn that progress is an idea that advances with the times, but that love is never out of date.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.

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