Our county is a great place to see a play or musical too. The county's numerous theaters include The F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre, Olney Theatre Center, and the Round House Theatre. Through mid-August, you can enjoy productions of The Pirates of Penzance and H.M.S. Pinafore at Olney Theatre Center. Last year, our family enjoyed a performance of Irving Berlin's White Christmas at the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre. Round House Theatre will put on a production of the play Small Mouth Sounds from August 29 through September 23, 2018. It's a humorous, but sensitive look at the awkward, comical ways people break down barriers in order to connect with one another.
Finally, don't forget about another county treasure, your award-winning local library system, MCPL! We've got a summer read and learn program for babies through teens to fend off the summer slide, Science in the Summer sessions to spark the imaginations of 2nd through 6th graders, and lots of other fun summertime events.
