How do You See Your home town?  How do you remember it? Lost & Found Laurel, a new exhibit that takes visitors on a trip down memory lane opens February 9, 2014 at the Laurel Museum.

As part of the Grand Opening celebration the first copies of Lost Laurel: The Book have been donated by author Richard Friend and will be raffled off February 9.
Through December 21, 2014. The Laurel Museum is open Wednesdays and Fridays 10:00a.m.-2:00p.m. and Sundays 1:00-4:00p.m. Free Admission.

Activating Your Inner Compass Seminar
April 24, 2014, 2:00 PM

14502 Greenview Drive, Suite 300A, Laurel, Maryland 20708

Join DiscoverMe Career Coaching and Consulting, LLC for a seminar on Activating Your Inner Compass: Approaching Career Transition with Clear Direction

This seminar will prepare you to take the next steps in your career transition and development so that you will have clear direction doing it. Oftentimes, individuals make rash decisions about their career without seeking wise counsel and end up where they don't want or need to be.  Career transition is an inevitable part of one's career; at some point we will make a decision to move on whether it's by force, promotion or choice. Career transition is not about quitting a job, but it's about making the discovery that you belong at a different place in your career and finding the right connection/environment to make a difference. 

Although many will transition quickly in their career, career transition should be taken in strides. If you're at the contemplation stage of career transition you need to be at this seminar! You do want to make the mistake of moving too fast and discovering you still haven't found the connection after you've let go. 

Topics include: 

  • Identifying your hidden skills and talents
  • Addressing your instinct 
  • Career exploration tools
  • Understanding the timing and phases of career transition 
  • Taking small steps towards career transition 
  • Networking and Q & A session

The Wild Party opens at Laurel Mill Playhouse
April 25, 2014, 8:00 PM 

Laurel Mill Playhouse 508 Main Street Laurel MD 20707

The Wild Party opens at Laurel Mill Playhouse

Andrew Lippa's Wild Party

Book by Andrew Lippa 
Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa 
Based on the poem by Joseph Moncure March 

Directed by Michael V. Hartsfield
Musically Directed by Alice Laurissa
Choreographed by Terrence Bennett
Produced by Maureen Rogers

A steamy prohibition tale steamrolling and roaring its way across the stage, Andrew Lippa's WILD PARTY was an off-broadway gem that garnered an array of industry accolades (including Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, & Obie awards).

Lovers Queenie and Burrs decide to throw the party to end all parties in their Manhattan apartment. After the colorful arrival of a slew of guests living life on the edge, Queenie's wandering eyes land on a striking man named Black. As the decadence is reaching a climax, so is Burrs' jealousy which erupts and sends him into a violent rage. Gun in hand and inhibitions abandoned Burrs turns on Queenie and Black. The gun gets fired, but who's been shot? 

Produced by special arrangement with Music Theatre International.
Wild Party runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm from April 25 through May 17 with two Sunday matinees at 2pm on May 4 and May 11.

Tickets are $20 for general admission. Admission for children (12 and under), active duty military and seniors (65 and over) is $15. For
reservations, please call 301-617-9906 and press 2. All tickets must be prepaid in advance. For further information visit the web site at www.laurelmillplayhouse.org or contact Maureen Rogers at maureencrogers@gmail.com or 301-452-2557.
