Dr. Lipoff: Port Tobacco Players Put on Super, Superhero Show

In case you may have missed this little gem of an operation, the Port Tobacco Players are putting on some marvelous shows in La Plata, Maryland. The community theater is a non-profit organization made up of volunteers who perform six main stage shows each season.  They are currently in their 66th season of shows.

This past weekend PTP performed the one-act play named Superhero Sanitarium by Scott Haan. The production was directed by David Standish. Tickets were modestly priced at just $10 for adults and $7 for kids, as this was a funny show for all ages.

Before the big night, Mr. Standish reached out to Foundation 4 Heroes, the local, nonprofit organization that focuses on promoting the superhero inside every child and inspiring them to be a hero. He recognized what they are doing in the community and decided to support them by donating half of the ticket sales from this night to their cause.

It was a tremendous opportunity for Foundation 4 Heroes to spread their mission north, but also they were invited to come out and interact with the guests. Capturing the moments on film was none other than the Jimmy Olson of F4H, Mike Batson (Mike Batson Photography), who selflessly continues to help local acts and organizations even in the face of danger.

Wow, were the people shocked and excited. They came to see a play and were greeted by Batman, Mickey Mouse, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Anna, Elsa, Black Widow and Nick Fury. Super COOL!

Lots of pictures were taken with fans but the fun had only begun. Inside the playhouse was a cleverly crafted play about people in a mental institution pretending to be superheroes.

Searching for an interesting story, famed journalist Lois Lancaster decides to write an article regarding the current state of care at a nearby mental facility. She is puzzled by the weird inmates and their silly notion that they are superheroes fighting crime throughout the city. Impossible!

Speed Freak, Mental, Dim Bulb and Brainstorm; are just a few of the wonderful cast of… Superheroes?

Some things start to happen and suddenly Ms. Lancaster wonders; maybe you can’t judge a book by its cover after all. Brilliant twists and turns make this an exciting and intriguing play.

PTP will be entering their production into the Maryland Community Theater Festival to be held in Lexington Park on Saturday, January 17th. Let’s support them and wish them luck.

Coming up soon Port Tobacco Players will be presenting the next main stage show, the comedy Dixie Swim Club opening on January 16th. Then on February 7th and 8th, there is more good clean fun the whole family can enjoy in the musical Winnie the Pooh and the Birthday Tail and is one to surely not be missed. Tickets are just $6!!!!  More information is available at and on Facebook.
