A COMMUNITY THEATRE MANAGED BY THE COLONIAL BEACH PERFORMING ARTS ASSOCIATION

Happening now at the Playhouse

As we continue making improvements at our downtown Colonial Beach facility at 108 Hawthorn, we are excited about our upcoming shows.

Our next step at improving our intimate venue is to finish walling in our tech booth, which includes electrical wiring and permitting by the town and county. We are pleased that we have concluded installing railings and indirect lighting that makes our auditorium safe and accessible for all. This includes space for two wheelchair seats, each with a companion seat. These seats can be reserved on line. Thanks so much for the patron contributions which helped pay for these safety improvements.

Our next play will be entitled The Mascot Mystery. It is a comedy/mystery about three women who meet in a local diner before attending their twenty-year reunion. They graduated in 1948. It also involves a former classmate of theirs who transferred to another high school in her senior year, and a former home economics teacher who once taught at the school before being dismissed in 1948. She is now the cook at the diner. They discuss the happenings that took place at the school 20 years ago, including the mysterious death of the boy who was the school mascot. This play is a world premiere, written by Virginia playwright Amy E. Little. This play is in rehearsal.

Also in the works is our December play, a comedy with tender moments entitled The Trial of Ebeneezer Scrooge, by Mark Brown. It is a year after Scrooge apparently became a man who loves Christmas, but has he reverted to his old self? He is angry, and he has brought suit against Jacob Marley and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, accusing them of attempted murder, breaking and entering, trespassing, stalking, theft, and causing pain and suffering. And so the trial begins...Check out the audition information by clicking on "AUDITIONS" above. We are always looking for talent. Auditions are scheduled for August 14 and 15.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT

COLONIAL BEACH PLAYHOUSE . . .

Last night two of my friends and I went to the Colonial Beach Playhouse to see the Savannah Sipping Society. We were absolutely delighted and laughed all the way through the play! It was funny and also moving. The actresses were perfection and the stage ladies really got their groove on !! I hope that all of you beach people take the time to see this little gem of a play.

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.
