|What's New Around the Theater?
After working hard for two weeks learning theatre skills and rehearsing their own productions, the 2022 class of Junior and Senior Campers are excited to show us what they've learned by performing their plays: Pan! and Murder, Actually!
Senior Campers: Murder, Actually
It’s the weekend of Algernon and Catherine’s wedding, and no one is happy about it — not the bride and bridegroom, not the family, not the neighbors, not the servants, not even the entertainment... the Roving Society of Poets and Yeomen. But especially not Algernon’s brother, Heathcliff, and his friend, Lady Virginia, who have raced home from their world travels to be at the wedding. When Catherine disappears and Algernon falls over dead, it appears the wedding is off. But not all is what it seems. With lots of surprises in store, is it love, actually? Or is it actually murder?
Junior Campers: Pan!
This fast-paced show is packed with adventure and does an amazing job of retaining all the critical story elements of Peter Pan. You’ll meet the dog Nana, who can’t stop the Darling children from following Peter and Tinkerbell through the nursery open window to Neverland. There, they make friends with the Lost Boys and Princess Tiger Lily as they encounter Captain Hook, his gang of wily pirates, and of course, the ticking crocodile.
Performances are June 17, 18, & 19. Tickets are only $7.

It's 1942, and two of Hollywood's biggest divas have descended upon the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel – assistants, luggage, and legendary feud with one another in tow! Everything seems to be in order for a peaceful wartime performance... until both stars claim the best suite for themselves – unbeknownst to the other! Mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres, and a lap dog named Mr. Boodles round out this hilarious riot of a love note to the classic farces of the 30s and 40s.
Co-directed by Lauren Bentley and Jason LeBlanc.
Starring Trevor Forrest, Janet Pharr, and Rose Weser.
Accompanied by Tyreako Bailey, Shannon Bentley, Erin Labor, Travis Labor, Trix Sunga, and Laurin Wilkerson.

A HISTORIC THEATER IN A HISTORIC SETTING
Vistors often refer to our small historic Southern town as something out of an old movie or a retro television show. References to the rural town of Andy Griffith's Mayberry, the dramatic landscapes of Gone With the Wind or the idyllic charm of Bedford Falls in It's a Wonderful Life, the City of Washington is a charming postcard town full of gorgeous old houses, tree lined streets and a quaint downtown square.
Likewise, the Bolton Lunceford Playhouse sits proudly among the historic North Alexander School complex, which dates back to the 1890's. Originally, the Playhouse was the school gymnasium. While public and private efforts are currently underway to rennovate the school buildings, the Bolton Lunceford Playhouse and the members of the Washington Little Theater Company continue to act as beacons for this educational complex.
The Playhouse is located within a five block walk from Washington's downtown square. Unique shopping and dining experiences on the square, combined with a live theater production, make for a fun evening out! Occasionally the theater will team up with area businesses to offer special promotions and discounts. Be sure to check out the season calendar for a complete list of theater events.
