Speed Date by Janet Allard

Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. (

It’s Valentine’s Day and the pressure is on. Seventeen crazy characters search for love in a round-robin game of speed dating. Everyone’s in on the action: a hopeless people-pleaser, a Frenchman, a guy hung up on his previous girlfriends, an art therapist, a clown, and more.          They’re desperate, chatty, needy, strange — and the clock is ticking. Will they find love before time runs out?

Superhero Sanitarium by Scott Haan

Produced by special arrangement with Eldridge Publishing company (

Lois Lancaster is a big-city journalist writing about the current state of mental health facilities. Her research takes her to a hospital populated with a unique group of quirky inmates who imagine they are crime-fi ghting superheroes. Speed Freak thinks he can run at incredible speeds, while enthusiastic Dim Bulb thinks he has the ability to turn off lights with his brain. Mental thinks she can read minds, despite being prone to sudden outbursts of bizarre non-sequiturs. Kevin, much less quirky and flamboyant than the other inmates, doesn’t embarrass himself with a ridiculous code name or least, not initially. Dr. Gail Eisner appears to be a kindly hospital administrator, a steady infl uence needed to effectively run a madhouse like this one. At fi rst Lois fi nds their elaborate superhero fantasies to be an entertaining diversion, the wild delusions of unstable minds, until something unusual happens that makes her wonder....

Up Next:

Our Spring production will be Southern Fried Funeral a comedy by Osborne & Epler Directed by Shay Harris.

Dewey Frye is dead and the rest of his family is left to pick up the pieces -- that is if they don't kill each other first. Not only does matriarch Dorothy have to contend with sudden widowhood, but she's also faced with church-committee harpy Ozella Meeks sticking her nose in the family business, Dewey's snake-in-the-grass brother making a grab for her house, and two grown daughters reliving their childhood rivalry. Funerals bring out the worst, the best, and the funniest in people, and the Fryes are no exception. A big-hearted comedy about family -- Southern-style.

Our annual Summer Drama Camp is gearing up for another two weeks of educational fun with Directors Shay Harris and Jason LeBlanc looking through plays and planning new activities to teach the next generation the ins and outs of theatre! Applications and more info...

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.
