Columbia, MD – Rep Stage, the professional regional theatre in residence at Howard Community College, announces its 25th anniversary season lineup of three contemporary classics—“The Heidi Chronicles,” “Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill,” and “True West”—and a world premiere play about Baltimore’s eccentric Cone sisters in Susan McCully’s “All She Must Possess.”

“The 25th anniversary season provides an opportunity for past Rep Stage artists and those who are new to Rep Stage to collaborate on creating the very best in regional theatre,” said Joseph Ritsch, producing artistic director. “As Rep Stage celebrates its past and looks toward the future, I am committed to producing engaging and evocative American contemporary classics and new work for seasons to come.”

The 25th anniversary season marks a transition in leadership for Rep Stage as Suzanne Beal, co-producing artistic director, will retire at the conclusion of the current 2016–2017 season. Joseph Ritsch will remain at the helm of Rep Stage’s leadership as producing artistic director.
