About Us

Founded in 2010, New Direction Community Theater was created to provide entertainment and acting opportunities for all ages in addition to serving as a local hub for thespians and audience members interested in an intimate and mature theater-going experience.  We offer one children’s show annually for our young actors and audiences.

Before landing in our current performance space, productions have been held at the College of Southern Maryland (Prince Frederick), Adam’s Ribs (Dinner Theater), and St. Paul UMC.  We have partnered with local community organizations for fundraising events and regularly contribute to local fundraising efforts/events.  We currently rehearse in various locations between Solomons and Prince Frederick while offering 3 main stage shows a year at the Long Beach Community Center in St. Leonard.

We are a non profit organization dedicated to bringing quality theater to the Calvert County as well as the neighboring counties. Our goal is to eventually have a four show season as well as a permanent space to call our own.
