If Monty Python were tasked with rewriting an Agatha Christie murder mystery, the results wouldn't be half as funny as The Murder Room, where "murder most foul" becomes "mayhem most farcical." Mavis Templeton Hollister returns to Brynwood Cottage in northern England only to find her husband, Edgar, waiting to greet her ... which is slightly distressing, considering she was 99% sure she had killed him earlier. She quickly "finishes the job" but Edgar's disappearance kick-starts a remarkable zany chain of events. Plodding police inspectors, mysterious hidden compartments, dull-witted relations and noisy servants all make The Murder Room an utterly charming place to be. Now Bowie Community Theatre stages a fresh production of this "killer" comedy from prolific playwright Jack Sharkey. Learn More

"Midsummer Night's Dream" is a somewhat difficult play, with its plot that makes no sense and a play within the play that makes even less sense. The Annapolis Shakespeare Players chose to overcome these weaknesses by emphasizing character rather than story. Thus, actor after actor gave the broadest interpretation of his/her character, even to the point of being campy. The decision to do that made the performance a success. My friend and I were thoroughly entertained by the sometimes athletically inspired cast. I still haven't figured out the employment of many umbrellas, not only in some of the action but in the set. But who cares? It was lots of fun anyway.
Theatrical haze is used in this production.
The opening night reception begins at 7:00pm and will include a generous assortment of hot and cold savory hors d’oeuvres and decadent desserts served buffet style, paired with wine and sparkling punch.
