Fall is the perfect time to get out and about in Southern Maryland! This weekend’s calendar is full of festivals and fun, including these three events.
Newtowne Players Thriller “Wait Until Dark”
The lights are going out at the Newtowne Players.
The Players will present the suspense thriller “Wait Until Dark” on select dates from Oct. 5-21. Performances take place at Three Notch Theatre, 21744 S. Coral Drive in Lexington Park.
“Wait Until Dark” is set in 1960’s New York. Susy is a newly blind woman whose husband brings home a doll from a business trip that, unbeknownst to him, holds something very valuable to some unsavory characters hell bent on getting it back. The play matches their criminal intentions against what should be a very vulnerable woman—except she has a few things in mind to even the playing field with the help of the upstairs neighbor girl.
Tickets are $15 for adults; $12 for seniors, students, and military; and $12 for children age 12 and younger. All tickets for Thursday performances are $10.
