Theater in Huntingtown

The Huntingtown High School theater department, Eye of the Storm Productions, opens today with the first of three performances of Michael Frayn's comedy, "Noises Off." The action centers on a small, provincial traveling troupe as it stumbles through dress rehearsals and its run of the play "Nothing On." Director Derek Anderson, the former director of Patuxent High's award-winning theater program, leads a cast that includes many transferring students from the award-winning theater departments at Northern and Calvert high schools. A two-level set built on the county's newest stage at the new Calvert County school adds to the talents of this newly formed theater troupe. 7:30 p.m. today, tomorrow and Saturday, Huntingtown High School, 4125 N. Solomons Island Rd., Huntingtown. Adults, $6; students and seniors, $4. Available in advance and at the door. 410-414-7036.
