We have amazing news — our team has been working hard to bring Broadway back to the Hippodrome and we're happy to announce that we have secured dates for seven out of eight shows previously announced to play this season in Baltimore. We are thrilled to share that Dear Evan Hansen will finally make its Baltimore debut this season. Unfortunately, To Kill A Mockingbird could not be rescheduled into the current season but will make its Baltimore premiere in a future season. Additionally, we were able to reschedule SUMMER: The Donna Summer Musical from last season.

Thank you for your patience during this difficult time. We are so excited to welcome you back this fall for an incredible roster of shows. We are in the process of contacting all current subscribers and ticket holders. No action required. NEW 8-SHOW PACKAGES ARE ON SALE NOW.

HFI Master Class with Ben Lipitz

Hippodrome Foundation had the pleasure of working with Ben Lipitz (Pumbaa: National Tour of Disney’s The Lion King) on a special virtual master class for some of its Camp Hippodrome counselors. During this class Ben guided students through a physical warm up, sense memory exercises, followed by instructional techniques geared to get students out of their prepared rehearsed performance and make them explore the material as artists. The session concluded with a question and answer session. As you will see in the video, Ben was able to help students deeply connect with their material and experience an emotional release which young artist normally have bottled up and are afraid to let out.

Enjoy these incredibly talented artists!
