What's New Around the Theater?
Mama Won't Fly by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten.

The Washington Little Theater will hold auditions for its 2018 summer comedy, Mama Won’t Fly, on Sunday, May 20, at 3 p.m. at the Bolton Lunceford Playhouse located at 313C N. Alexander Ave., Washington. Roles are available for men and women — both onstage and behind the scenes. Experience in the theatre is great but not required to audition. Those seeking acting roles will be asked to read brief sections of dialogue from the script. More information about rehearsal schedules, etc., will be discussed at the audition.

Mama Won’t Fly is a hilarious race against the clock for Savannah Sprunt Fairchild to get her feisty mother, Norleen Sprunt, all the way from Alabama to California for her brother’s wedding. Only problem is, as the title implies, Mama won’t fly. With only four days to make it to California, Savannah has no choice but to partake in a mad dash across the country. To complicate matters, the naive bride-to- be thinks it would be a good bonding experience to join in on the journey.

The play is being directed by Tonya Harper with Libby Foster as assistant director. Play performances are scheduled for the first two weekends in August. (3rd-5th and 10-11th)

Acting roles available:

9 roles for women ages 30-50
5 roles for women ages 60-90
5 roles for men ages 40-50
5 roles for men ages 60-70

ENTERTAINING AUDIENCES FOR MORE THAN 40 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.
