The holiday festivities are over, the gifts are unwrapped, and you are looking for something to do. How about coming out to see a show about an artificial intelligence who is responsible for accidentally destroying the world and trying to repopulate the earth with only four human beings and her two android assistants in a run-down fallout shelter? Doesn’t sound too complicated, does it? Oh, and did I mention this is a comedy?
Laurel Mill Playhouse’s 2019 season kicks off with Another Door Opens. Another Door Opens is directed by The Beltsville News’s own Rick Bergmann with Beltsville Resident Gary Heath helping out with set design and starring several local actors. It’s the best kind of comedy: quirky characters, strange situations, and laugh-out-loud dialogue all contained in one tiny fallout shelter. The show runs for three weekends beginning Friday, Jan. 4. Show dates and times are Jan. 4, 5, 11, 12, 18, and 19 at 8 pm and Jan. 6, 13, and 20 at 2 pm. Tickets are $20 general admission and $15 for students 12 and under, seniors 65+, and active-duty military. You can buy tickets online at laurelmillplayhouse.org or at the door the day of the show. Laurel Mill Playhouse is located at 508 Main Street, Laurel, MD 20707.
