Maryland Ensemble Theatre's FUN Company
Maryland Ensemble Theatre returns to the Weinberg Center for the sixteenth straight year with their annual production of the holiday classic, A Christmas Carol. Scrooge, Tiny Tim and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future once again remind us of the true meaning of the holidays in this heartwarming adaptation that will delight audiences of all ages! The show, which received five stars in Maryland Theatre Guide last year, runs the weekend of December 20th.
The Frederick Children’s Chorus
The Frederick Children’s Chorus will present the 19th annual Messiah Sing-along at the Weinberg Center for the Arts. Performers on stage will include a thirty-voice chorus, twenty-piece orchestra, and four soloists, led by Judith DuBose, Artistic Director. In the audience will be several hundred singers, waiting for their turn to sing, and listeners who have the opportunity to sit among the singers. Each year for eighteen years an enthusiastic audience has gathered, ready to sing the well-known choruses of Messiah by G. F. Handel.

We Need Your Help This Holiday Season!
Frederick County Bank has generously offered the Weinberg Center a matching gift if we can raise $2,500 in new memberships or donations between now and December 31st.
You can help us reach this goal with a simple gift of just $50.
Our Members enjoy benefits like:
- ticket-buying access before the general public (get great seats!)
- complimentary concessions coupons
- and, at giving levels of $100 or higher, they can even receive free tickets!
Making a Difference in Your Community
Charitable contributions help the Weinberg to offer programs that ticket sales alone would not cover, such as our arts education programs for over 15,000 area schoolchildren every year. Long-term studies show that students who have the arts integrated into their school curriculum this way have better academic results, better workforce opportunities, and more civic engagement later in life, according to the NEA. Help us continue to “pay-it-forward” to the next generation.
Every new or increased gift this holiday season will double its impact through this corporate matching gift. You can contribute by any of these options:
- Like us on Facebook, and spread the word about why you support the Weinberg.
