We have a sophisticated population in this area wit h a true desire to be entertained as such."

The Theatre has unlimited untapped possibilities not just as an entertainment venue that will feature a wide variety of upcoming shows such as the hilarious, longest running comedy improve show in New York City-Chicago City Limits, Broadway's "Little Women," Gaelic Storm-the Celtic band featured in the movie Titanic, a phenomenal jazz and children's series, progressive and classic rock, as well as opera and The Dubrovnik Symphony.

"I get the sense that the community has been eagerly waiting for a revitalization of this extent and nature. They are reaching out with such enthusiasm and generosity to support The Maryland Theatre. This is a chance to see a theatre, which you would have previously needed to travel to New York City to experience. Now we are fortunate enough to have it in our own back yard. People are very proud of that fact."
