Mitchell tells us Arena Players rich history in Mount Vernon


The COVID-19 crisis has shuttered so many of our key local institutions of history and education. Places we’ve all been and love and can’t wait to return when this is all behind us.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been reaching to so many of these special places and finding out what their plan is during and after the corona virus shutdown.

David Mitchell came to Baltimore two decades ago as a Morgan State student and has built his life and teaching career around the Charm City arts and stage scene. As the current Managing Director of the Arena Players in Mount Vernon, he has seen the wonders of a strong community theater tradition that began in 1953 as is the oldest continually performing and historically African-American community theatre in our region.

Clearly, a lot has changed and it’s happening very quickly – and crisis management has become the key role for all us during the pandemic.

We are all in this together and this is a time to educate, unite and keep each other safe. But we also have some extra time to read and learn and educate ourselves in many ways.

We will continue to produce high-quality, intelligent conversations with thought leaders throughout this pandemic at Baltimore Positive. And we expect to do it at a rapid pace so stick with us and subscribe!

Like all others, we have halted a “live schedule” and will continue to launch our chats as we have them during this crisis. Expect more than less.

Because of the election moving to June 2nd, we will be having more of the mayoral candidates back to Baltimore Positive to discuss all of the current issues and the additional five weeks of virtual campaigning for the hopefuls.

Please subscribe to Baltimore Positive and stay with us.

We were built for this…
