    One of the mid-Atlantic’s most popular Grateful Dead tribute bands, local to Maryland, Better Off Dead will get you feeling good and groovy! Featuring Maryland and DC musicians, Better Off Dead has performed in some of the East Coast’s most beloved venues and their performance on the new Root Family Stage at Omi’s Pavilion at Olney Theatre will be epic!

    Note: There will be space in front of the chairs section for dancing. 

Applause Series: West Side Story

  • Saturday & Sunday, July 8 & 9, 7:30 PM

    What better way to kick off the new Root Family Stage at Omi's Pavilion than with a concert version of one of America’s most beloved musicals? Maestro Christopher Youstra conducts a 20-piece orchestra that celebrates Leonard Bernstein's timeless score.The cast includes Harris Milgrim (The World Goes 'Round) as Tony, Laura Virella as Maria, Natascia Diaz (In The Heights) as Anita, and a special appearance by Tracy Olivera (Beauty and the Beast).


For most events seating for Olney Outdoors is purchased by section. Those sections include:

  • Individual Seats - Olney Theatre-provided chairs in front of the stage
  • Bleacher Seats - Metal bleachers further back -- what they lack in back-support, make up for in sightlines.
  • Lawn - Areas for blankets and bring-your-own chair. Sightlines may be obscured.

Seating within sections is general admission. So arrive early to save your seat.
