Places, Please!


Howard County Summer Theater’s big production for 2024 opens this weekend. It’s “Guys and Dolls”, and will run for 7 performances at Marriotts Ridge High School. 

I went to last summer’s production, “Hello Dolly” and had a lot of fun. You can learn more about the mission of Howard County Summer Theater at their website, where you can also purchase tickets. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to local charities. 

Heads up: there’s road work going on out there. This helpful PSA comes from a cast member:

Are you coming to see Guys and Dolls? Here are a few transportation tips. Part of Marriottsville Road will be closed during our run (from Resort Road to US 40) and while you can "technically" still get to the school from Marriottsville Road North off of 70, you may want to avoid it all together and go down to 32 North. I've also included an image with info on parking (don't turn into the first parking lot; go to the second). Can't wait to see you there!

Also this weekend, more performances of the musical at DoodleHATCH - - “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” presented by Stand Up for…Theatre, 7 pm. (Tickets here.)

Stand Up for…Theatre presents "You're Good Man Charlie Brown" at the DoodleHATCH Interactive Art Museum, 8775 Cloudleap Court Columbia, MD 21045. Performances are June 21 & 22 at 7 PM and June  23 at 3 pm. Sunday matinee performances are sensory sensitive. (Link to purchase tickets)  adults $22, children/seniors/military $20. Group discounts are available. DoodleHATCH is handicap accessible.

And here’s a great review of the show by Amanda N. Gunther of TheatreBloom.

One more performance this weekend that has become one of my favorites of the summer: the Columbia Orchestra’s Pops Concert at the Chrysalis. It’s Sunday, June 23, from 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM in Merriweather Park at Symphony Woods.

This year’s theme is “Preludes and Possibilities.” Tickets are free but you must register so they’ll know how many people to expect and how to best assign parking.

Presented by BWFA, don’t miss this fun and exciting musical journey filled with possibilities as the Columbia Orchestra, under the baton of guest conductor Victoria Gau, performs a captivating program of popular pops melodies. This remarkable afternoon will culminate with the historic announcement of the orchestra's next Music Director.
