"Anything Goes" Wins Ruby Griffith Award for
Outstanding Achievement in a Musical

July 14, 2019

 

Columbia, MD - The British Players hosted its annual Ruby Griffith Award ceremony to honor outstanding achievement in community theater in and around Washington, D.C.  Silhouette Stages' March 2019 production of Anything Goes, directed by Conni Ross, won the award for Outstanding Achievement in a Musical.  This is the third Silhouette Stages production to win a Ruby Griffith Award (Next To Normal in 2016 and Young Frankenstein in 2017).

 

Anything Goes was an enormous undertaking for an all-volunteer community theater like Silhouette Stages.  With Choreography by Tina DeSimone, Musical Direction by Billy Georg, and Stage Management by Donna Hawkes, this talented cast, crew, and design team put together a highly entertaining musical.  Anything Goes was included in MD Theatre Guide's Top 5 Shows of the Week, in which they commented "Silhouette Stages’ production of ‘Anything Goes’ offers a quality production of a classic show, with compelling performances, excellent voices, and fine staging.

 

About the Award:  Early in 1964, Ruby Griffith became a founding member of the British Players (formerly known as The British Embassy Players) and became the group's Artistic Director. She produced and/or directed seven of the British Players' first fourteen productions. In honour of her contributions, the British Players instituted an annual award competition for All-Round Production Excellence. In 1991, two new achievement awards were added; Outstanding Achievement in a Musical and Outstanding Achievement in a Non-Musical. More information:  http://www.rubygriffith.org/

 

 

Silhouette Stages' Production of Cabaret Named #1 Show in Maryland
May 22, 2019

 

Columbia, MD - MD Theatre Guide has named Silhouette Stages' production of the Kander & Ebb musical Cabaret the #1 Show of the Week in Maryland.  "Cabaret is a tremendous undertaking for any theatre group not only due to the fact that the music and lyrics are well known and thus there are expectations by the audience, but because there are strong political and social themes... Silhouette Stages is up to the assignment."  Directed by Stephen Foreman, whose staging is "breathtaking," with Musical Direction by Michael Tan, whose live band is "sensational," MD Theatre Guide says, "If you have never seen “Cabaret,” this production should be high on your list of things to see this Spring.  It will be most memorable and leave you inspired.  If you have seen “Cabaret,” you will not be disappointed in the show. Tommy Malek’s portrayal of the Emcee should not be missed."

 

Silhouette Stages is honored to have had 13 of our last 15 shows included in MD Theatre Guide's list of Top 5 Shows of the Week in Maryland, including a streak of ten consecutive shows between 2014 and 2017. While the Top 5 of the Week is not a formal award and may not be a typical honor for many organizations, Jeremy Goldman, President of the Board of Directors, says, "We view the number of shows included on this list as a testament to the consistently high quality of our productions. Being included on the Top 5 of the Week list consistently over such a long period of time means a lot to our organization - but the credit ultimately goes the hundreds of volunteers behind the scenes and on our stage."
