Tis the season to celebrate the holidays with the ARTS. Our county has so much to offer in the way of entertainment, you don’t have to travel far to find a wonderful play, musical, symphony or art exhibit to enjoy. If you are looking for that special gift to give, a pair of tickets or a season subscription to the performances of one of the many performing arts groups or a membership in one of the County Historic preservation organizations is a great way to support our artists and shop local!
Whether you travel North, South, East or West, coming up, we have some fabulous opportunities. In Edgewater there is still time to catch a performance by the National Ballet Company of Swing Time Nutcracker Sweet. See the information below:
Next Friday and Saturday, December 16 and 17th at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts will be “Messiah by Candlelight” presented by Live Arts Maryland.
