Best Theater Company

Single Carrot Theatre

120 W. North Ave., (443) 844-9253,

Posted 9/16/2009

This category gets tougher and tougher every year, and theatergoing audiences are the true winners because of it. The young upstarts at Single Carrot Theatre get the nod this year, not only for bringing contemporary titles to town, such as Adam Szymkowicz' Food for Fish, Sarah Kane's Crave, and Tracy Letts' Killer Joe; for producing top-notch lesser-known works from classic dramatists, such as the spring production of Henrik Ibsen's The Wild Duck; or for staging their own original comedies (Slampooned). No, what sets SCT apart is its commitment to participate and build the local theater community: After only three full seasons in Baltimore, SCT launched a week-long summer youth conservatory focusing on acting, design, and production for 8th-12th graders, and two of its members were part of a Baltimore contingent that visited Russia's Golden Mask Festival, a networking journey that could yield local productions of contemporary Russian plays as early as next year.
