Tidewater Players is ecstatic to continue our status as the premier theatre of Harford County by announcing our exciting new season which includes two regional premieres! Kicking off our 40th SEASON (and our 33rd as the resident theatre of the Havre de Grace Opera House!) are three amazing shows that harken back to the decade where we first arrived in our theatrical home. If you jammed to “OneNight in Bangkok” on the radio in 1986 (or any ABBA song for that matter), join us September 7-16 for the glorious new London version of the Benny Andersson/Tim Rice/Björn Ulvaeus masterpiece CHESS, fresh from its acclaimed sold-out run at the Kennedy Center. November 16-December 2 we present the hot off the national tour premiere of the musical version of the classic 1983 holiday binge film, A CHRISTMAS STORY. February 22-March 3, 2019, watch out for the original Mean Girls with the hilarious dark comedy musical HEATHERS, based on the iconic 1988 cult comedy that launched the careers of young Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. In May we have several other exciting contracts in the making to round out our season, but we can’t talk about them just yet….. Stay tuned for more information soon!  Check out the Current Season tab for more fun details.

Tidewater Players – The Community Theatre of Havre de Grace

Tidewater Players is a community theatre group based in the beautiful and historic town of Havre de Grace, Maryland. For 35 years we performed exclusively in the Havre de Grace Opera House on Union Avenue. After two years of performing pop up theatre in various venues throughout Harford County due to the extensive renovations at the building, we are happy to be back home in our position as resident theatrical company in the expanded and refurbished new Cultural Center at the Opera House at 121 N. Union Avenue in Havre de Grace. No longer exclusively the home of Tidewater Players, there will be many other cultural events and even other theatrical companies passing through. Because of this, and to make sure you receive the quality you have come to expect from Tidewater Players productions, we recommend you follow all our news and information on productions here or on our Facebook page linked below (and shown at right), as well as purchase your tickets through the link above.

We’ve also added a great new feature, our theater blog, written by board member Mark Briner!

Finally, please take a moment to join our mailing list below, to be sure to receive updates on new shows and auditions as they become available.

Thank you for supporting the arts in Havre de Grace and Harford County!
