A COMMUNITY THEATRE MANAGED BY THE COLONIAL BEACH PERFORMING ARTS ASSOCIATION
ARE YOU READY FOR ANOTHER RADIO PLAY?
Colonial Beach Playhouse is proud to announce that we have produced another original radio play, and WWER has agreed to broadcast it. Broadcast dates are being scheduled and we will announce them here as soon as we have firm days and times.
This will be episode two of the Chesapeake Mystery Theatre. Entitled "Problem on the Potomac," this fictional story is based on historical facts concerning Colonial Beach in 1956. An eighth grade boy (voiced by CB student Anthony Sammaro) sets out to write a term paper about the local oyster industry and learns some hard facts in the process. We are also pleased to announce that Dodson Development Group is a sponsor of this episode.
Both CB Playhouse and WWER are hoping to continue producing and broadcasting radio plays in the futhure. If you are a writer or aspiring writer, we welcome submissions of plays similar to our first radio play, "Incident at the Bell House." The old-time flavor and connection to Colonial Beach are desirable but not required. Keep in mind that we are an all-volunteer organization and there would be no pay. But you would be benefiting not only the Playhouse but the Colonial Beach Community as well. And you would have something new on your resume!
If you listened to the play and enjoyed it, or are interested in future radio plays we may prioduce, please consider making a financial donation of any size. Just click on the DONATE button above. Our secure donation system has a place to add a note, so mention "radio" if you wish. That will encourage us to produce more such plays. If you prefer to donate by check you can mail a check to CBPAA, P. O. Box 31, Colonial Beach, VA 22443. Even though we are not performing on stage, we still have to pay rent and other expenses. Your much-appreciated support will keep the Colonial Beach Performing Arts Association going.
All 2021 donors will receive advanced information by email, so be sure your email address is included with your donation.
We had a new high for online listeners streaming at once!

THE BELL HOUSE
At this time, we do not know when we will resume in-person productions. That will depend on progress against the pandemic. We certainly hope to be back on stage sometime in 2021.
WE HAVE TERRIFIC NEW MEMBERS OF OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM!

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT
COLONIAL BEACH PLAYHOUSE . . .
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.
