"Ascend Strings" a big hit!
The string quartet Ascend Strings appeared on our stage on Saturday, January 28 to a standing ovation. The young men from Stafford County delighted our sold-out house with over 20 popular and classic pieces. From the outset, it has been the goal of the Colonial Beach Performing Arts Association to present special performing arts events like this at the Playhouse. Not only did it affirm our belief that Colonial Beach is hungry for such entertainment, but we discovered that our venue has excellent acoustics for small musical groups. No amplification needed. We hope to have Ascend Strings back in the future, as well as other talented performing artists.
Continuing improvements to our venue.
Improvements at our intimate venue at 108 Hawthorn in downtown Colonial Beach are continuing. We finally have full permitting from the Town and Westmoreland County! Currently we are finishing our tech booth, which includes electrical wiring. Thanks so much for the patron contributions which are paying for the tech booth walls, door, and steps. Thanks also to the grant from the Colonial Beach Community Foundation, which will pay for the signage and mural on the front of our building. The signage has now been approved by the Town and new lighting has been installed. New paint, new logo, and a new awning will be added soon.
Here's a great gift idea!
Gift certificates are now available for purchase on line. This is a great gift for friends who may not be aware that there is a community theatre in town. These certificates are like gift cards. They can be in any amount and never expire. Our ticket service keeps track of how much is left on the certificate, and they can be used to purchase tickets on line for most events held at our venue.

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.
