Two weekends left: Murder Takes the Stage!

I have it on good authority that we’re going to get a positive review from the Bowie Blade this Thursday.

C’mon – it’s camp, it’s just about two hours (including intermission), and it’s only $15 ($12 Seniors/Students), and – best deal of all – get 10 or more together prepaid and you can see the show for just $10 each! That’s just about the cost of admission to a movie these days. Better yet, visit the Old Bowie Town Grille for dinner and get a fabulous meal to boot!

Murder Takes the Stage by James Reach, directed by Jo Rake, produced by Yours Truly, plays Friday and Saturday nights at 8pm, plus this Sunday at 3pm at St. James Episcopal Church in Historic Old Bowie, MD. For more info, visit our web site: http://www.outoftheblackbox.org/0607/Murder/index.shtml

Also of note: Nominations for next year’s Board of Directors opens on May 9th – Nominate early and often: nominate at o2b2 dot oh-ar-gee!

And watch this space for announcements of our next workshop, season selections for 2007-2008 and more!

Murder Takes the Stage opening TONIGHT!

Yes, folks, in just 18 and a half short hours, James Reach’s Murder Takes the Stage opens at St. James Episcopal Church in Historic Old Bowie, MD.

There’s a wonderful article in the Bowie Blade-News (http://www.bowieblade.com/vault/cgi-bin/bowie/view/2007B/04/26-37.HTM) and the Gazette (which hasn’t updated its web site yet, so phooey on them).

There weren’t all that many people in the house tonight, but from what I saw through the cracks in the curtain from the kitchen, the show was working. I’d really LOVE to have people in the house this weekend. We’re already two-thirds sold out for the second matinee on May 6th.

Performance dates are: April 27 – May 12, 8pm Friday and Saturdays, Sunday 4/29 and 5/6 at 3pm. St. James Episcopal Church in Historic Old Bowie, MD.

You can reserve your tickets by calling 301-922-1865 or sending email to tickets at o2b2 dot org. We just need to know who’s reserving, a contact number, the quantity and type of tickets being reserved ($15 General Admission, $12 Seniors/Students, $10 prepaid for groups of ten or more.

For directions, visit our web site at www.OutOftheBlackBox.org!

Hope we see you there!

Maug and I and maybe Lisa D. will be there on July 22. I am sorry we can’t go before then.
