A COMMUNITY THEATRE MANAGED BY THE COLONIAL BEACH PERFORMING ARTS ASSOCIATION

PREPARING FOR OUR GRAND RE-OPENING!

We are in the process of planning re-opening Colonial Beach Playhouse after 15 months of closure due to the pandemic. Although our plans for in-person performances are still being firmed up, our goal is to come back better able to deliver high-quality performances. Our plans include acquiring an indoor performance space in downtown Colonial Beach that can be used for most of our plays and other performing arts events.

We are pleased to announce that our first play after re-opening will be Savannah Sipping Society,

a comedy about four very different women who meet after trying hot yoga and become close friends. At this time we have not decided on performance dates. Auditions are being held. Click here for audition information.

Regarding future plays, we are seeking input from our patrons. If you have a play (or type of play) that you would like to see the Playhouse produce, please let us know by emailing us at cbpaa.info@gmail.com. Keep in mind that our primary venue will be an intimate space and rarely involve large casts. We also value your opinion as to other types of performing arts events, such as piano or dance recitals, stand-up comedy, small musical groups (singers or instrumental), indoor movies, etc. etc. We want this to be a year-round performance space that serves the community and attracts people from all over Virginia and Maryland.

WE HAVE TERRIFIC NEW MEMBERS OF OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM!

The Board of Directors of Colonial Beach Performing Arts Association is pleased to announce that two new Directors have been elected. They are Heather Trivett and Kendra McDougal. Both Heather and Kendra have been involved for many years in non-profit activities in Colonial Beach, and have previously supported the theater's efforts in many ways.

Welcome, Heather and Kendra.

THANK YOU to our patrons, actors, and Board members for donating to and helping with our two very successful Yard Sales which raised money to help meet expenses during the current down time!!

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.
