Lying in a hospital bed as a teen, Mark Andrew Beachy settled on what he wanted to do for a career. A bout with a sinus infection that quickly escalated to fluid in his lungs left the then-15-year-old Beachy thinking about how much a visit from a performer means to sick children and adults. Now 24, the Ellicott City resident has launched the Baltimore Children's Theater's first big production at Howard County Center for the Arts. "There hadn't been much children's theater around here," Beachy said.

Teresa Eyring was at home, waiting for an airport cab on her way to a meeting in Chicago, when she learned that Minneapolis' Children's Theatre Company, where she serves as managing director, had won the 2003 Tony Award for best regional theater. "There was screaming that occurred and jumping up and down," says the former Baltimorean. "I called our production manager. He almost drove off the road." The sense of shock was two-fold. As Eyring awaited her cab, her actor husband, Philip Callen, was scrolling through the nominations on his computer.

Much has changed in the world since 1959, when the Children's Theatre of Annapolis produced its first play in a local recreation center. But as the theater gears up to celebrate its 40th anniversary, one thing has stayed the same -- the kids who perform and work behind the scenes most times come away with memories that last a lifetime. "I came here and I could be anything I wanted to be," said 17-year-old Kathleen Scott of Millersville, who has worked in the theater since she was 12 and stars in its current production of "The King and I."
