Description: Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother’s failing health. After meeting on a train, they attemp to work together, only to find that this small French town isn’t big enough for the two of them. They agree on a settlement; the first one to extract $50,000 from a young female target, heiress Christine Colgate, wins; and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep audiences laughing, singing along, and guessing to the very end!

Tickets: $25 Adults, $20 Seniors/18 & under

The Man Who Came to Dinner
By George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart
Directed by Keith Brown
December 1 – 16, 2017

Prince George’s Little Theatre at the Bowie Playhouse

Description: Sheridan Whiteside, critic, lecturer, wit, radio orator, intimate friend of the great and near great, met his Waterloo in the shape of a small piece of ice on the doorstep of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest W. Stanley, of Mesalia, Ohio, while trekking across the country on his annual lecture tours. Result: the idol of the air waves rests until further notice in the home of the surprised Mr. and Mrs, Stanley. Possibility: Christmas may be postponed this year. So runs the lead article in the Christmas 1939 issue of Time magazine. Whiteside turns the Stanley household upside down, forcing everyone in town to cater to his egotistical demands. Meanwhile, his beloved secretary has given her notice after falling in love with a local reporter, and Whiteside must engage every weapon in his considerable arsenal of guile and manipulation to keep her in his employ—including blackmail, deceit, and the intervention of a femme fatale actress Lorraine Sheldon and the elegant British wit of playwright Beverly Carlton. A three-ring circus of machinations and celebrity appearances ensues.

Tickets for all shows: $22 Adults, $17 Seniors/18 & Under

The Uninvited
Written by Tim Kelly
Directed by Keith Brown
Produced by Malia Murray
April 28 – May 13, 2017

Prince George’s Little Theatre at the Bowie Playhouse

Seeking to escape the demands of life in London, Pam Fitzgerald and her brother, Roddy, an aspiring playwright, discover a charming house on the west coast of England, overlooking the Irish Sea. The house, Cliff End, has long been empty, and they are able to purchase it at a suspiciously low price. The reason is soon apparent: The house has an unsavory reputation. Fifteen years earlier a murder may or may not have occurred by the gnarled tree that can be viewed from the parlor window. Slowly the Fitzgeralds begin to sense the evil spirit that still inhabits the house. With help, Cliff End is forced, at last, to reveal its dark secrets and the ghost is discovered to be not only real, but dangerous.

Tickets for all shows: $22 Adults, $17 Seniors/18 & Under. Buy tickets here.
