'Night of Ballyhoo' a day trip away

Critic's choice: Theater

June 27, 1999|By J. Wynn Rousuck

Totem Pole Playhouse, the summer theater nestled in Pennsylvania's Caledonia State Park, is in the midst of the second production of its six-play season. Alfred Uhry's 1997 Tony Award-winning play, "The Last Night of Ballyhoo," continues through July 4 and features several current Baltimoreans -- actors Wil Love and Rosemary Knower and director Carl Schurr (who is also the theater's artistic director) -- as well as former Baltimorean Tess Hartman. The production will move to Philadelphia's Walnut Street Theatre in January.

Located in Fayetteville, Pa., 15 miles west of Gettysburg, Totem Pole makes a lovely day trip. Here's the rest of the season: "The Pursuit of Happiness" (July 6-18), "Rumors" (July 20-Aug. 1), "Cliffhanger" (Aug. 3-15), "Radio Gals" (Aug. 17-29). Tickets are $18-$27. Call 717-352-2164.
