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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening in beautiful Colonial Beach!!

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

As a relatively new organization, WE NEED VOLUNTEERS. Click the VOLUNTEER button for more information.

All past live performances have been staged at the Colonial Beach Community Center
717 Marshall Ave, Colonial Beach, VA.

Those of you who dropped by our location at 108 Hawthorn in downtown Colonial Beach got a preview of our new "intimate" theater space, where we will perform "Savannah" and most of our future plays and other performing arts events. Meanwhile, our new venue will be remodeled as funds become avalilable. The stage itself and lights and sound will be in place by November, but we will continue to work on the audience area and a high-tech lighting and sound booth as funds become available.

 

An example of other performing events we plan to stage was Cool Summer Nite, Saturday August 7, when Bob Taylor appeared on our stage (see photo). These events may be 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.
