Chasing Verity
Studio 194 Theatre
Saturday, September 5, at 8:00pm

Chasing Verity is known for strong, soulful vocals; powerful, driving guitar; and dynamic live performances. Based in Baltimore and Annapolis, and influenced by blues- and classic-rock bands like Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, Chasing Verity brings its own youthful, modern twist to an old-school rock sound, creating music that defies easy labeling. The band has been described as classic rock, alternative rock, pop, pop punk and even “hippie punk.” Whatever the label, they aim to put on an energetic live performance that audiences won’t soon forget and to create music that audiences will enjoy playing over and over again once the live performance has ended.

Chasing Verity has been heard on 98 Rock’s Noise in the Basement with Matt Davis, and the band has performed live at several venues and festivals, including Baltimore Soundstage, Rams Head Live, the Ottobar and others in Baltimore, as well as Rams Head On Stage, the Metropolitan, Maryland Hall and other venues in Annapolis. A highlight of Chasing Verity’s experience was participating in (and winning) Chesapeake Arts Center’s 2014 Be the Band Competition. The band loved CAC’s theater and is so excited to return to help kick off CAC’s 2015 Saturday Concert Series.

The National Players: “A Tale of Two Cities”
Hammonds Lane Theatre
Saturday, September 26, at 10:30pm

Dickens' novel about the people of France and Britain during the Reign of Terror is vividly brought to life in Benjamin Kingsland's bold new adaptation. Justice, sacrifice, class, love and duty are put to the test as leaders are beheaded and people rebel. As blood flows in the streets, is anyone truly innocent?

The National Players: “A Midsummer Night's Dream”
Hammonds Lane Theatre
Saturday, September 26, at 8:00pm

Shakespeare's most mischievous comedy throws unrequited lovers, warring fairies and amateur thespians into a mysterious forest and sets a trickster, Puck, loose on them all. When a love potion gone wrong starts to confuse everyone, who will wind up chasing whom?
