Dear Friends,

Like all other theatre companies in the world, we are currently closed down.


We had hoped that the performances of Nunsense that could not be performed in March could be postponed to a later date.

Due to circumstances, that will not be possible


One of our actresses is dealing with a covid-related challenge in her immediate family and cannot perform. Two of our other actresses have college commitments.

Therefore we are officially cancelling the remaining performances of Nunsense.

Those still holding tickets for the cancelled performances on March 20, 21, and 22 will be mailed a letter explaining how to apply for a refund.

All other planned Playhouse productions for 2020 have been cancelled due to the continuing uncertainties regarding the current pandemic. However, the Colonial Beach Performing Arts Association is actively engaged in other performing arts activities.  Look for a video that will be posted on the Osprey Festival web site later this month and a radio mystery on Colonial Beach's station, WWER.


Hopefully 2021 will be a safe, healthy, and outstanding year for the entire community, featuring more great plays at Colonial Beach Playhouse.


The Colonial Beach Performing Arts Association has two openings on it's Board of Directors. If you have an interest in the performing arts, please consider helping us guide the Association's future plans. The Playhouse is currently inactive due to the pandemic, but the Board is actively looking into creative ways of bringing performing arts to our community that don't involve public gatherings. At the same time, we are planning shows for the Playhouse in 2021 after restrictions are lifted. If you are interested, please email the Board at cbpaa.info@gmail.com.



From the simple stage of the community center, and with minimal props and sets, the audience is transported to the magical realm of this heart-moving children’s classic "Charlottes's Web." Its powerful messages about life and love are conveyed through 15 talented, enthusiastic actors, three of whom are just of elementary school age.

Nicholas "Nick" Zsobota as the voice of the adult George Bailey was a delight, bringing true emotion to the role.
