A lie is such a small betrayal. And a murder mystery can be such a grizzly arranged spectacle. Hold onto your hats and your sanity when it comes to Bowie Community Theatre’s latest offering to the stage— Lucille Fletcher’s Night Watch. A chilling suspense-driven drama, Directed by Randy Barth, this maddening thriller has all the hallmarks of Gaslight, all the decadence of Deathtrap and all the charm that such plays require to set the hairs at the back of your neck on edge.
The only place in the world where you can truly feel safe is with family. Especially when your family puts the ‘fun’ in dysfunctional as the Kurnitz family does in the classic Neil Simon, Lost in Yonkers, now appearing at Bowie’s playhouse in the woods to start off the 2016/2017 season for Prince George’s Little Theatre. Directed by Ken Kienas, this touching family dramedy tugs at the heartstrings as two teenage boys find themselves unexpected living with their extremely rigid and strictly traditional German grandmother out in Yonkers,
Hear ye! Hear ye! The royal proclamation has been set down by Prince George, and his little theatre, that those interested in a most fanciful retelling of a treasured fairytale find their way by foot, horse, hired carriage, fairy godmother, and any other means necessary to the quaint little playhouse in the woods and witness the whimsically enchanting production of Once Upon a Mattress, being performed by the aforementioned Prince George’s Little Theatre.
Advice is free. If it doesn’t fit you can always return it. And just like any shopping endeavor, good advice is often hard to find. Prince George’s Little Theatre is a great place to go looking for it in their production of Brighton Beach Memoirs, the first of three shows in the 55th season. A poignantly witty, well received , emotionally touching comedy, the family featured in the Neil Simon classic puts the ‘fun’ in dysfunctional.
