Summer theatre delights audiences

June 27, 2008

Theatre on the Hill’s 2008 summer season is coming to a close, but there’s still time to catch the final performances of “Anansi: Tales of the Trickster Spider,” “Into the Woods,” and the fabulous post-show revue “All that Jazz.”

The Tony Award-winning “Into the Woods” is a musical fairy tale in which a baker and his wife try to break a curse put on them by the witch next door. On their journey, they meet Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella and Jack in the Beanstalk. “Into the Woods,” meant for young and old alike, will run at 7:30 p.m. on July 25 and 26, Aug. 1 and Aug. 2. There will be a matinee performance at 1:30 p.m. Aug. 2.

The play “Anansi: Tales of the Trickster Spider” tells the story of a brave spider's desire to bring stories into the world and the difficult challenges he faces achieving his goal. This play is appropriate for ages 4 and up. “Anansi” will run at 1:30 p.m. on July 26.

A long-running favorite at Theatre on the Hill,  “All That Jazz: Late Night Post Show Revue,” allows the company members to delight audiences with a sassy selection of songs, skits, stand-up and more. “All That Jazz: Late Night Post-Show Revue,” a cabaret-style performance, will run at 10:15pm on July 26.

Theatre on the Hill, established in 1982, is a professional summer musical theatre at McDaniel College, providing Carroll County and the surrounding area with fully produced, family-friendly Broadway musicals and plays during June, July, and August.
