The Lurman Woodland Theatre is a non-profit community park operated under the direction of the Friends of Lurman Woodland Theatre, Catonsville Recreation and Parks Council, along with the Baltimore County Department of Recreation and Parks. All funds are raised through sponsorship, grants and donations, and are used in-full to provide this concert series and to improve the theater. This program is made possible in part through sponsorship of the Baltimore County Executive, County Council, and the Commission on Arts and Sciences.
The Friends of Lurman Woodland Theatre Committee is an all-volunteer organization committed to providing a safe, enjoyable atmosphere for families to gather and enjoy music and other activities. All are invited and we welcome your support.
|The history of Lurman Woodland Theatre is as rich and varied as the entertainment it provides each year. "Farmlands" was a name given to this area in the late 1700’s by Edward Dorsey. The original tract being some 2, 000+ acres, was later given to his son, Hammond, as a wedding gift. Hammond and his wife built a mansion upon the site. In 1820 the house with six hundred acres was sold to Henry Sommerville, who renamed it "Bloomsbury Farm".|
|We, as a committee are dedicated volunteers with a commitment to provide enjoyable, safe, and affordable family entertainment for all. We are also dedicated to protecting and enhancing the Lurman Woodland Theatre, to enable the continued use of this beautiful, outdoor park. In addition, we recognize the community as an integral part of the the ongoing success and vitality of the Summer Concert Program and the Theater.|
