Leak Discovered in Ceiling, But The Show Will Go On

A jewel to the community, many come to experience live performances at the historic Maryland Theatre year round. But just as the theatre has lit up with holiday decor in time for loads of winter concerts ahead, a leak in parts of the ceiling has taken center stage.
MARYLAND, Md. - The Maryland Theatre couldn't be busier with all kinds of holiday performances set for the winter season. So the timing couldn't be worse when officials with the theatre discovered a leak in the ceiling. 

A jewel to the community, many come to experience live performances at the historic Maryland Theatre year round. But just as the theatre has lit up with holiday decor in time for loads of winter concerts ahead, a leak in parts of the ceiling has taken center stage. 

"A few areas on the balcony are in need of emergency repairs. Due to safety precautions they can not wait until after our holiday season," said Jessica Green, with the Maryland Theatre. 

With performances booked for the majority of the month, having to do construction inside the theatre is not something listed in their calendar of events. 

"Well, we are making it work. We have an 'okay' to the contractors to errect the scaffolding," said Green. 

A special black curtain has been hung from the scaffolding to improve the appearance of the ceiling. Officials with the theatre say because of the issue with the ceiling was identified so quickly, all shows will proceed as planned. 

"We are excited that the programming scheduled will go on. The safe guards will allow us to have that joyous holiday season," said Ronald Bowers, with the Maryland Theatre. 

"The goal of our board of directors and Maryland Theatre staff is always safety in the enjoyment of our theatre patrons," said Green. 

Now that safety precautions are in play, as the saying goes...

"The show will go on," said Bowers. 

Green tells WHAG that while the scaffolding does take up a small portion of the theatre on the upper level, she expects there will still be plenty of room for the theatre goers to attend the performances.
