A cornerstone of the Frederick arts community, the Weinberg Center has offered high-quality live entertainment in a landmark venue since 1978. “The 2019-20 Season brings a few changes to the Weinberg Center for the Arts as we expand our movie offerings and young artists programs,” said John Healey, Executive Theater Manager. “There are still familiar names this season, but quite a few new folks that will broaden our horizons.”
