Not only is the Classic Theater of Maryland (CTM) celebrating a decade of providing audiences with bold and uplifting experiences, the holiday season brings two more reasons to celebrate. CTM invites people from across the region to attend their bold, reimagined and vibrant performances of their original A Christmas Carol and Irving Berlin’s revamped Broadway production of White Christmas. The shows are presented alternately from November 25th to December 24th.
Sally Boyett founded CTM in 2013 as a professional theater company dedicated to promoting the highest level of artistic excellence. CTM nurtures the widest possible audience and contributes to the economic and cultural growth of the community, state and region through core experiences and programs.
White Christmas heralds the holiday season that viewers of all ages can enjoy. This reimagined tribute to legendary song-and-dance men, Bob Wallace and Phil Davis, follows a sister band to Vermont, only to find that their former commanding general owns the near-bankrupt lodge where they were scheduled to perform.
White Christmas performances begin on November 25th and continue through December 24th. Almost simultaneously, CTM will also be offering performances of A Christmas Carol from December 2nd to December 24th.
CTM has created an innovative tribute to the story of Charles Dickens to inspire a spirit of charity towards those less fortunate. CTM’s Helen Hayes Awards-nominated original production of this classic Christmas story has become an annual Christmas tradition, delighting guests of all ages.
A Christmas Carol premiered on CTM in 2017 and continues to garner critical acclaim. Classic Theater of Maryland captures the spirit of Christmas with his inspiring and heartwarming production of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” said Jeanie Casison of Maryland Theater Guide, with superb performances and stunning visuals that transport you to Victorian-era London.
Tickets for both shows start at $55 each. Shows are offered both weekdays and weekends.
Thanks to CTM, attending a first-class classical theater performance no longer requires a trip to the big city. With an easy drive down West Street, CTM’s shows and cabarets allow you to have that long-awaited night at the theater experience just around the corner, especially in the wake of the Covid pandemic.
“CTM weathered the pandemic by producing films for streaming and is now roaring back with a full season of in-person performances to celebrate ten years of professional live classical theatre,” said Donald Hicken, CTM’s executive chairman and resident director.
Filming on the productions continues at CTM for streaming and digital distribution. These are also used to enhance the pre-show and post-show workshops that accompany all student matinees and educational programs.
