Bob Reilly, The Laurel Independent’s “Beat of Laurel” columnist, will be featured in a unique show at Laurel Mill Playhouse in April. 

“We’ve never had anything that combines music, storytelling, audiovisuals and a band,”  Maureen Rogers, general manager at the playhouse, said with a chuckle. “It’s completely different.”

Reilly will share stories and songs inspired by his book, Rideshare by Robert. The Reilly Goulait Band, which is composed of Laurel residents Reilly, Joe Goulait and Mike Walls, will provide music. 

“I think it’s kind of neat that all three are local residents,” Rogers said. “They’ve joined the ride.”

Following the event, Reilly will be signing books at Olive on Main restaurant, next door to the theater.

“I’ve never seen anything like it and I’m pleased my company, Weinot Productions, is putting together this unique event,” Reilly said, in an email.

The show will take place at 2 p.m. on April 7 at Laurel Mill Playhouse, 508 Main St. Dinner follows at Olive on Main. Tickets are $45 and include the show plus $25 toward dinner and beverages. For more information, call 301.617.9906.
