The SSFS Arts Department proudly announces the 2019 Community Play, Seed Corn: a comedic evening celebrating the works of Barry Morley, one of the founding teachers at SSFS; current and longtime music faculty member Bryan Seith; and the legacy of community art at SSFS that they helped to create.
Performance Dates and Location:
Thursday, February 28, Friday, March 1, and Saturday, March 2 at 7:15 pm
All performances will be off-campus at the Sandy Spring Monthly Meeting House (17715 Meeting House Rd, Sandy Spring, MD 20860), as this was the original performance location of the 9th Grade play program.
The show is free; there is a suggested cash donation of $10. No reservations are required.
The evening will feature three components: a one-act play, a one-act opera, and original chamber music composed by Bryan Seith. The one-act play "Breakfast Beforehand," was written by Barry Morley and originally performed during the early years of the Ninth Grade Program, which was established by Barry and Anne Morley in 1973. The feature performance of the evening is the debut of an original musical work titled Seed Corn. This one-act opera combines a libretto authored by Barry Morley, with music arranged and composed by Bryan Seith. The evening will also include original chamber music by Bryan Seith, who has been inspiring student musicians here at SSFS since 1980.
