Brothers act in production of local theater


November 30, 1993|By SUE HALLER

Two Huntington Woods residents, Chris and Jonathan Dahl, will be featured in the Children's Theater of Annapolis (CTA) production, "The 3 1/2 Musketeers."

Both Chris, 14, a student at Arundel High School, and Jonathan, 11, a student at Crofton Middle School, are veterans of local productions.

Both brothers appeared in the most recent production at Arundel High, and Chris has been in two shows at the Annapolis Dinner Theater. Last summer, the talented youngsters took part in the Annapolis Garden Theater's Talent Machine production.

The theater is a family affair. Dwayne and Beth Dahl got involved with their boys in local theater about two years ago, and now the family has 10 shows behind them.

For this show, Dad is the stage manager and Mom is the production manager.

Thirty-five young people ages 8-14 will appear in "The 3 1/2 Musketeers," a musical spoof featuring comedy, intrigue, romance and choreographed swordplay.

Performances are Dec. 10, 11, 17, 18 and 19 at the Pascal Center for Performing Arts at Anne Arundel Community College. All seats are reserved and tickets are $6.00, or $5.00 for groups of 20 or more.

To learn more, call the CTA information line at 757-ACT1 (2281).
