It's Melodrama Time! Tickets are on sale for "Avarice in Ambrosia"!

It's melodrama time!

It’s Apple Blossom Festival time in the Old West town of Ambrosia, and all the townsfolk are looking forward to the celebrations.

But something — or rather, someone — is rotten and wants to spoil everything.  The evil Hagloe Crab and his sidekick, Roxbury Russet, are planning to swindle sweet Honey Gold and Granny Smith out of their properties.

Will the handsome sheriff, Adam S.  Pearmain, and his near-sighted deputy, Ben Davis, be able to save the day?  Find out in this hilarious melodrama filled with sight gags, puns, slapstick, confusion, miscommunication and a twist ending.

Tickets are now on sale for "Avarice in Ambrosia".  Show dates are September 2, 3, 8-10 (8 PM), and September 4 (2 PM).  All seats $10.  Click here to get your tickets now!

Enjoy the crazy melodrama fun!!

Playhouse Addition Work Day

Greetings, playhouse fans!

We are so excited to announce that the new addition is one step closer to completion! Taping and texturing is finished and now we need as much help as possible to get the new rooms painted.   We will be having a work day on Saturday, August 13 starting at 10:00 am and continuing until everything is painted.  With your cooperation we can get this done in one day and move onto the next phase of electrical wiring as soon as possible.

If you can't spend all day, even a few hours of your time will help move this project forward significantly.

Hope to see you all there, and remember, the community in community playhouse means you!

Your president,
Monica M Russell

Tickets are on sale for Disney's "Alice in Wonderland, Jr."!


Lewis Carroll's famous heroine comes to life in a delightful adaptation of the classic Disney film.

Travel down the rabbit hole and join Alice, one of literature’s most beloved heroines, in her madcap adventures.  Featuring updated songs from Disney’s thrilling animated motion picture, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland JR. is a fast-paced take on the classic tale.
The ever-curious Alice’s journey begins innocently enough as she chases the White Rabbit.  Her adventures become increasingly more strange as she races the Dodo Bird, gets tied up with Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, raps with a bubble-blowing Caterpillar and beats the Queen of Hearts at her own game!

This year's Youth Performing Arts Workshop is directed by Sandy Goad and Ronnie Gray.  Click here to see the full cast list.  

All seats are $10.  Show dates are July 14-16 (7:30 PM) and July 17 (2 PM).
