Historic Oakland

When Jim Rouse was planning Columbia he took special pains to preserve some of Columbia's historic buildings such as Dorsey Manor, the stone house at Wilde Lake, the Barn at Oakland Mills, Oliver's Carriage House... and Oakland, one of the oldest buildings in Howard County. Rouse wanted to make sure that the people of Columbia understood that the city had roots that must be cherished and protected. To that end, the Columbia Association undertook the renovation of Oakland, also known as Oakland Manor, in 1986. Through the careful guidance of Michael Trostel, a fellow of the American Institute of Architecture, Oakland's beauty has emerged. Managed by TCCA

Have you ever seen an Italian Water Circus?
July 10-12, 2015

Our Brand new Show is Waiting for you in Gaithersburg, MD

| http://www.cirqueitalia.com | office.cirqueitalia@gmail.com |

Get ready for an experience that will take you far, far away to the wonders of Italy and the magic of an immersion into its culture. And into water! Yes, you heard well. Our circus features a 35,000 gallons water stage! Isn't that crazy? We're like no other circus in the United States, you can be sure- and we take pride in our uniqueness.

During the show, you won't believe your eyes when the lid lifts up to 35 feet in the air while a CURTAIN OF RAIN AND FOUNTAINS GLISTEN WITH EACH PERFORMANCE MOVE!

Indeed, our show wouldn't be the same without our artists' spectacular performances! We have artists from all over the world that will make you feel like a child again, keep you entertained and craving for more! Don’t forget the atmosphere you'll be able to experience. You'll feel like you've been transported to Italy! Authentic Italian tradition and origins is what characterizes us, starting from our founder and inspirator, Manuel Rebecchi. As the nephew of Moira Orfei, the owner and soul of the most famous circus in Italy, Manuel can truly say that the circus runs in his blood. He knows this industry and world like no other! His passion, knowledge and entrepreneurial spirit have all combined to make of this show an experience to remember for a lifetime. “I want to see people have fun, enjoy the show, and go out with a smile and the desire to come back!” says Manuel.

Cirque Italia is now celebrating its third birthday, so we can say we've achieved Manuel's dream! The team is always striving to make the show even more spectacular. Chante DeMoustes, our COO and producer who's indefatigable in bringing innovation, has welcomed brand new acts and classiness to our show! Cirque Italia brings performers with unique talent, and is also an animal-free show. This is for those who may wonder what type of circus we are.

THE MUSICAL CLOWNS are our show animators. They display a wide variety of musical slapstick and side-splitting comedy! And how about the VERTICALI ACT all the way from Italy? Wouldn't you like to hear our artist sing Andrea Bocelli while performing UPSIDE DOWN? Then, are you ready to see the optical illusion and hypnotism of our LASERMAN ACT? Watch the laws of physics crumble when the performer actually "holds" a beam of light in his hand, splits it into two, then bends it and wields it like a saber of light! And more magic in the air with the TWIN SAILORS cause mischief with the audience, and perform the DUO AERIAL RING! Children of all ages will be eager for our spectacular MERMAID, emerging from her shell and swimming through the fountains! Hey girls and guys, do you know that she will be delighted to take pictures with you too? This is merely a description of what you'll see and experience! ACROBATIC POLES, HIGH ENERGY JUGGLING, even DARK MAGIC AERIAL TISSUE and more await you!
 So, get your tickets! And remember… we're offering a free child admission with each full-priced adult admission in levels 2-3!

Red branch Theatre Announces Casting for Avenue Q: School Edition
Brunch and Babysitting Package Add-Ons introduced this summer
July 31 – August 8, 2015

RED BRANCH THEATRE COMPANY ANNOUNCES CASTING FOR AVENUE Q: SCHOOL EDITION

May 27, 2015
Columbia, MD – Red Branch Theatre Company (RBTC) continues its 2015 season entitled Coming of Age with the TONY Award-winning musical comedy with puppets, Avenue Q: School Edition.  Casting has just been completed for the inaugural summer musical at Howard County’s newest professional theatre. The production will run at Drama Learning Center, where Red Branch is the theatre in residence, from July 31 – August 8, 2015. In addition to being Red Branch’s first summer musical, Avenue Q also marks the first production for which Red Branch has cast an ensemble comprised of emerging young artists.

Avenue Q follows recent college graduate Princeton along his journey as he moves into a shabby apartment on Avenue Q while searching for his ever-illusive purpose in life. Red Branch originally produced Avenue Q in October 2012. Part flesh, part felt, and packed with heart, the School Edition was adapted by the show’s authors to provide an edited option for production while still maintaining the gut-busting humor found in the original version. For this revival, Red Branch Theatre Company has cast a company of emerging young theatre artists aged 18-25 to provide performers in the nascent period of their professional careers an opportunity to interact with area audiences.  Both the cast and production staff are comprised heavily of alums of TYA, Drama Learning Center’s teen professional company. Choreography and staging conceived by Jenny Male, director of RBTC’s original production, will be utilized for this production. Additionally, the custom puppets commissioned by RBTC will return to the stage in this new production.

Continuing the established partnership with The Iron Bridge Wine Company, all patrons will receive a free dining certificate to the restaurant with each ticket purchase. In addition to the complimentary dining certificates, Red Branch and Iron Bridge will join forces during the run of Avenue Q to offer a Brunch-and-Play package for the Sunday, August 2nd performance. Patrons can opt to dine at Iron Bridge prior to the matinee performance for brunch. An interactive puppetry workshop led by Drama Learning Center teaching artists will be held at the theatre during the 3 PM performance so that parents can enjoy the show while their children are supervised nearby. “We hope that families will use the Brunch-and-Play option as an opportunity to spend some quality time together dining at Iron Bridge,” states Managing Director Tiffany Underwood Holmes. “After brunch, moms and dads can have a date at the theatre while the kids get to explore a world of their own creation through the magical medium of puppetry. It’s our intention for families to experience the best of both worlds through this package.”  

Remaining productions in Red Branch’s 2015 season include Dogfight, and a world premiere of a new musical adaptation of Peter Rabbit.  Avenue Q: School Edition is presented with permission through special arrangement with Music Theatre International.

24-hour fundraising cycling event returns to Columbia Registration is now open to join the 2015 ride

COLUMBIA, Md.  – 24 Hours of Booty is back in Columbia for an eighth year. Registration is now open athttp://24hoursofbooty.org.

The annual non-competitive bicycling event for people of all ages and abilities will take place at Columbia Gateway Business Park from Saturday, August 22 at 2:00 p.m. to Sunday, August 23 at 2:00 p.m.

Funds raised from the event will benefit The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults and Livestrong Foundation. The event is anticipated to raise more than $250,000 for cancer survivorship and navigation programs.

“We look forward to another great year ahead and appreciate all the support from our riders, sponsors and cancer survivors,” said Basil Lyberg, executive director of 24 Hours of Booty. “Together, we are continuing to make an impact in supporting top-notch cancer survivorship and navigation programs right here in the community.”

The route, a 2.1-mile loop, rolls through the green space at Columbia Gateway Business Park. Riders can ride “The Booty Loop” as much or as little as they want during the 24-hour period.

At the heart of the action is “Bootyville,” the event’s headquarters where riders can camp, socialize and enjoy music as they recharge from riding. Along with three catered meals, riders receive access to unlimited snacks, energy bars, water and sports drinks.

“Bootyville” is also the site of the exposition area where corporate sponsors offer a range of services including 24-hour bike support, raffles for special items and information about their services.

To participate in the Columbia event, each rider is required to pay a $45 registration fee and raise a minimum of $200 prior to the group ride. Participants can register as an individual or as part of a team.
In the event’s 13-year history, more than 13,000 riders have raised more than $13 million in select cities. In addition to Columbia, 24 Hours of Booty holds cycling events in Charlotte, N.C. and Indianapolis and brings in participants from around the country.
