The show continues May 18 & 19 at 8 p.m. and May 20 at 2 p.m. The seminal event in American history blazes to vivid life in this most unconventional of Broadway hits. 1776 puts a human face on the pages of history as we see the men behind the national icons: proud, frightened, uncertain, irritable, charming, often petty and ultimately noble figures, determined to do the right thing for a fledgling nation. For more information about this and other upcoming shows or to donate to Tidewater Players, visit www.TidewaterPlayers.com or email at info@tidewaterplayers.com.

This Is My Brave is a show about what it’s like to live through mental illness and come out on the other side.

The power of the human connection through the telling of personal experiences will grab hold of the audience for the show’s ninety minutes and beyond. We’re all affected by mental health issues since 1 in 5 individuals will deal with a diagnosable mental illness in any given year. It’s time to shine a light on a subject we don’t normally talk about, but should! Join us and help change the conversation. TICKETS ON SALE NOW: bit.ly/BRAVEBALT

Joseph Booth: The Youngest Brother of John Wilkes Booth, May 20

Come to Tudor Hall for a special talk on Joseph Adrian Booth, the youngest brother of John Wilkes Booth. Born into a family of actors, young Joseph only briefly entered the family profession before realizing he exited the stage for good. While far less is known about Joseph than his famous (and infamous) brothers, the details we do know paint a fascinating tale of an enigmatic brother. In his speech, Dave Taylor will examine the life of Joseph Adrian Booth and the impact Lincoln’s assassination had on his life. Dave is the creator and administrator of the popular Boothiebarn.com. He is an avid Lincoln Assassination and Booth researcher, writer and speaker. He is also a tour guide for the John Wilkes Booth Escape Route Bus Tour organized by the Surratt Society. Talk starts at 2:00 pm and lasts about 45 minutes. Located at Tudor Hall, 17 Tudor Lane, Bel Air, MD 21015. $5.00 cash for those ages 13 and older.
