Thurmont Middle School
5/30-5/31/2014
One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town's youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend's rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren's reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin' rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.Music by Tom Snow; Lyrics by Dean Pitchford; Stage Adaptation by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie; Based on the original screenplay by Dean Pitchford; Additional Music by Eric Carmen, Sammy Hagar, Kenny Loggins and Jim Steinman

Now Playing Onstage in Washington, DC - Week of 5/25/2014 DAMN YANKEES
HIGHWOOD THEATRE
5/31-6/1/2014
Faust meets professional baseball in the Broadway classic DAMN YANKEES. Middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd trades his soul to the Devil, also known as Mr. Applegate, for a chance to lead his favorite team to victory in the pennant race against the New York Yankees. As young baseball sensation Joe Hardy, he transforms the hapless Washington Senators into a winning team, only to realize the true worth of the life he's left behind. Joe ultimately outsmarts Applegate, returns to his former self, and shepherds the Senators to the World Series.Light, fast-paced and devilishly clever, DAMN YANKEES is a home-run hit featuring all-American subject matter and an irreverent sense of humor. The perfect choice for a high school's spring musical or community theatre production, DAMN YANKEES is sure to please.

A futuristic, sci-fi musical featuring the songs of Queen. In a world where globilization has wiped out individuality, everything is spoon-fed to you. You are told what music to listen to, what movies to watch, what clothes to wear, and even what thoughts to think. However, a group of youths search for instruments to play music the way they want it played.

Now Playing Onstage in Washington, DC - Week of 5/25/2014 LADIES NIGHT IN A TURKISH BATH
Allenberry Playhouse
5/14-6/15/2014
One of the greatest and most loved farces of all time and a true Allenberry tradition! We are bringing back one of our favorites this season just for you! Set in the decadent 1930's, it's the springtime love story of a bold young college girl who is in love with a shy professor. He's so shy around women that he is terrified - he never thought he'd end up trapped in a Turkish Bathhouse surrounded by ten beautiful and barely dressed women! It's doesn't get any funnier than Ladies' Night! It's a perfect date night or trip out with your friends. Great for groups and couples.
