Other Voices, Inc. happily trips down the rabbit hole Easter weekend with a vibrant version of a family favorite, The New Adventures of Alice in Wonderland. The production casts returning Frederick theater icons, Joann Lee and Julie Herber, as the quarreling Red & White Queens. They are joined by other well-known adult actors from the Frederick area in featured roles as the Mad Hatter (Jeremy Trammelle), White Rabbit (Shawn Nakia) and every audience’s favorite, the Cheshire Cat (Susan Thornton).
This original musical adaptation of the Lewis Carroll classic tale entertains children of all ages with high energy dance sequences, fantastical scenery and costumes, and show stopping musical numbers. It is the perfect addition to your Easter holiday weekend entertainment. Choreography by Donna Grim and Directed by Susan Thornton. The Friday evening performance will be an American Sign Language interpreted performance, partially enabled by a grant from the Frederick Arts Council.
Singer and songwriter Rosanne Cash celebrates the release of her much anticipated new album, The River and the Thread (Blue Note Records). The album is a collection of new, original songs that connect and re-connect Cash to the American South, the place of her birth and the home of her ancestors.
Cash follows her acclaimed GRAMMY Nominated and Award-winning album The List (2009) with her own poetic survey of places and people of the South on these beautiful and varied songs written with her collaborator, musical director and husband, John Leventhal.
“THE SOUL AND RICHNESS OF THE PEOPLE AND THE MUSIC OF THE SOUTH RESONATES IN A PARTICULAR WAY FOR ALL OF US. IT’S A DEEP CONNECTION,” says Cash.
Cash will be joined onstage by John Leventhal for this remarkable concert event at the Weinberg Center on Monday, March 31 at 7:30 p.m.
Immediately following the concert, join us for a private meet-and-greet reception with Rosanne Cash on the Weinberg stage. Proceeds to benefit Frederick Reads.

Since 2004, Red Molly has been bringing audiences to their feet with gorgeous three-part harmonies and crisp musicianship. Hailed by The Bristol Herald Courier as an Americana trio with “silky smooth harmonies,” it’s easy to see why they spent 20 weeks on the Americana Music Association’s Top 40 radio chart.
In 2012, Red Molly had an amazing year touring across the US and Canada and opening two shows for music icon, Willie Nelson. Their 2011 CD, Light in the Sky, was #64 on the 2012 Americana Music Association’s Top 100 radio chart, the highest independent recording artist on the list. And, on the 2012 Folk DJ Year-End chart, Light in the Sky was #3 and Red Molly was the #7 Top Artist.
Red Molly will be joined on the Weinberg stage by Mike Clem on the upright bass. Clem is a founding member of the Washington D.C.-based Eddie From Ohio (EFO).
We’re About 9, a trio from Ellicott City will open the show. Longtime friends of Red Molly, We’re About 9′s 2008 album Paperdust :: Stardust features several guest musicians, including members of the headlining trio.
