|What's New Around the Theater?
The 2021 class of Junior and Senior Campers are excited to present their plays, The Emperor's OLD Clothes and Robin Hood!
After working hard for two weeks learning theatre skills and rehearsing their own productions they will show us what they've learned with three performances.
Performances are June 18, 19, & 20. Tickets are only $7.
This will be streamed Saturday and Sunday. Friday's performance is in-person only.
We are excited to announce auditions for our upcoming musical Beauty & The Beast under the direction of Dr. Stan Coe! This will be a fantastic show for the whole family to participate in with roles for men, women, and children of all ages. Although this is a musical and will have a lot of singing and dancing, not every role will be required to do so, so we encourage everyone to come out!
Performances are planned for the beginning of May.
Auditions will be at the theater January 16th at 3pm, 18th at 7pm, and 20th at 7pm.
Notes for auditionees:
> You will be required to read some excerpts from provided scripts.
> If auditioning for a named singing role, please be prepared to sing a song.
> You only need to attend one audition day unless otherwise told by the Director, but you are welcome to attend multiple.
Additional production leadership includes director's assistant Ricky LeBlanc, musical director April Morrison, stage manager Jason LeBlanc, lead costumer Rose Weser, and set designer Jim McKee.

ENTERTAINING AUDIENCES FOR MORE THAN 50 YEARS!
For over four decades, the Washington Little Theater has been entertaining audiences with quality dramatic, musical and operatic performances for people of all ages, making it one of the longest running community theaters in the state of Georgia.
In addition to a full schedule of traditional live theater productions, the Washington Little Theater also offers an annual Summer Drama Camp for children ages 8-18 in June, as well as a children's theater production geared towards local school children every September.
The theater also works closely with the Washington-Wilkes Arts Foundation and the Washington-Wilkes Historical Foundation to bring a variety of traveling shows, lectures, workshops and musical performances to the community throughout the year.
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.
