    Round House Theatre, 4545 E W Hwy, Bethesda, MD 20814, USA

    For a repressed group of teenagers, the road to adulthood is fraught with suffocating confusion in Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater's Tony-winning adaptation of Frank Wedekind's prescient 19th-century drama. As the adults in their lives exert control but withhold guidance, Melchoir, Wendla, Moritz, Ilse and their friends navigate blindly through the enigma of their burgeoning sexuality. Both haunting and high-octane, the score bristles with anthems to adolescence like "Mama Who Bore Me" and "The Bitch of Living," and is infused with a blend of folk, pop and rock that gives this tale unexpected soul. With generational gaps growing wider than ever, the angst and defiance at the heart of this boundary-pushing musical act as a bridge between our deeply personal yet wholly universal experiences.

Activities begin at 1:00 PM including consultations with our genealogy “mavens” followed by the program beginning at 1:30 PM.


    In this presentation, Tony will describe how his Jewish genealogy research laid the foundation for his travels to towns in Eastern Europe where his and his wife’s families lived over the past four centuries, as well as travel to his birthplace of England. The pre-travel research process enabled him to maximize the results of his travels. He will also describe the many dimensions of his experiences in visiting all of these places and his experiences with the guides that he used. Finally, he will discuss the several lessons he learned on steps that can improve one’s genealogy experiences. He says, “There were many things I wish I had done on my travels that would have made the trip even more useful.”


    Tony has a Ph.D. in Social/Community Psychology from the University of Kentucky. He worked for 26 years for the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on research and policy projects. He played a leadership role in 11 town research groups, particularly Skala Podolskaya in Eastern Galicia, where his mother was born. He spent several weeks as part of three trips traveling to Eastern Europe, Western Europe and Great Britain, visiting all of these ancestral places and other relevant places. He has published articles on these trips and has given several talks about the trips and other topics relevant to Jewish genealogy.

    Speaker: Clare McDonald
    Tuesday, March 3
    12:00 p.m.
    Beall-Dawson House
    FREE

    Kick off Women's History Month with this fascinating talk by Claire McDonald!

    For women of Montgomery County, like women throughout the country, their paths to leadership and politics were not direct ones. Achieving political clout and influence in the county and beyond took decades of hard work and persistence. Much of this work began with the fight for the right to vote. This presentation—offered on the 107th anniversary of the 1913 Woman Suffrage Procession in DC—explores women’s suffrage in the county and its relationship to the growing network of women’s clubs from the late nineteenth century through the early 1930s. Presenter Claire McDonald will also highlight the lives and contributions of three local women. The presentation will coincide with a new two-part online exhibition about women’s paths to leadership in the county.

    Tuesday Talks are always free and open to the public! For more information, visit our website, https://MontgomeryHistory.org

    Beall-Dawson House
    FREE

    The Macedonia Baptist Church was organized in 1920 as a mission to the Bethesda area by Mt. Calvary Baptist Church of Rockville, Maryland. It had its origin with prayer service led by Reverend Will Mason in the upstairs room of Deacon Thomas’ home in Scotland, Maryland. Its first true location was on Elm Street in Bethesda, where it ministered to the faith needs of African Americans who manned the coal yards and building supplies businesses that catered to the growing white development in and around “Miller’s Flats”. In 1945, Rock Creek Baptist Church of Tenleytown was forced to leave its location as the District of Columbia cleared the way for Fort Reno Park, thus leaving a void in faith needs for African American citizens of nearby River Rd in Montgomery County; under Rev. Mason, Macedonia expanded into its current location at River Road and Clipper Lane and has served members of that community ever since, even as they must return to that location after dispersal of their community in the early 1960’s.

    Tuesday Talks are always free and open to the public! For more information, visit our website, www.MontgomeryHistory.org, or contact us at 301-340-2825.
