These Shining Lives chronicles the strength and determination of women considered expendable in their day, exploring their true story and its continued resonance. Catherine and her friends are dying, it’s true; but theirs is a story of survival in its most transcendent sense, as they refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits—or endanger the lives of those who come after them.
The Newtowne Players
The mission of the Newtowne Players is to promote all aspects of the performing arts in Southern Maryland. We provide an outlet for people in the community who are interested in theatre in any capacity at all. Whether their interest is performing, directing, writing, make up, costume design or technical support, we provide opportunities for all through education, growth and hands on experience of working as a volunteer in any of these areas of theatre. In the process, we provide quality entertainment to the surrounding communities. Our goal is to foster, promote and increase the public knowledge and appreciation of the arts and cultural activities in St. Mary's County and Southern Maryland, and to make live theatre affordable and available to as many members of the surrounding communities as possible.
