World Premiere, Regional Premiere, and Two Contemporary Classics Planned for Season
Columbia, MD – Rep Stage, the professional regional theatre in residence at Howard Community College, will launch its 2019–2020 season with “Souvenir” by Stephen Temperley, followed by a world premiere by local playwright Bob Bartlett and a regional premiere by Philadelphia playwright James Ijames, and then conclude with the timeless musical “Dames at Sea.”
“This season celebrates the power of theatre and how we can create empathy through its storytelling,” said Rep Stage Producing Artistic Director Joseph W. Ritsch. “All four productions in the season also examine power in its many forms, whether it is the power of positive thinking, the abuse of power or the power of pure entertainment.”
“As always, the 2019–2020 Rep Stage season will inspire conversation and ignite imagination. I continue to try and bring stories to our audiences that have a vision for a theatre that fosters radical hospitality; where everyone is welcome, and where we can all see ourselves in the stories we tell.”
Joseph Ritsch, Producing Artistic Director.
