College theater to perform 'Baltimore Waltz' CARROLL COUNTY DIVERSIONS

October 01, 1993

"The Baltimore Waltz," a play by Paula Vogel, will open the Western Maryland College theater department's 1993-1994 season Oct. 9.

This preview performance will begin at 8 p.m. on the Understage in Alumni Hall. It also will be presented at three performances Oct. 21-23.

"The Baltimore Waltz" relates the adventures of a man and his sister, a school teacher who has a fatal disease. They travel to Europe in search of a cure and one last stab at life. The absurdity of their situation is resolved only when one of them confronts an unexpected tragedy, leaving the audience dumbfounded. The play is intended for adults.

Western Maryland's theater department will enter the production in this year's American College Theatre Festival competition. A portion of the proceeds from each performance will be donated to A Moveable Feast, a Baltimore food bank.

Principals for this production are Dara Breitkopf, Todd Bickling and Jeffrey Masterson.

The production is directed by Steve Miller, who also is designing costumes and sets for a number of theater productions nationwide. The play's lighting will be designed by Chris Patrick; the set, by Sara Lundberg; and the costumes, by Denise Umland.

The play's Oct. 22 performance will be sign-interpreted.

Tickets for "The Baltimore Waltz" are $3 for students and $5 for nonstudents. The Alumni Hall box office will open a half-hour before each evening's performance.

Reservations: 857-2599.
