Happy New Year to all of our fans and volunteers! We are thrilled to bring you some fantastic productions this year! We have ‘Puffs’, a Potter Parody (March), ‘The Laramie Project’ a captivating and moving exploration of a hate crime in a small town (June), and ‘Roald Dahl’s Matilda’, a musical about an extraordinary girl with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind (July & August). Then, to kick off our 25th season, we have ‘The Social Secretary’, an original work by a local playwright (October) and ‘Catch Me If You Can’, a high-flying musical comedy following the true story of con man Frank Abagnale, Jr. (November). We hope you are as excited for 2020 as we are!

The Hufflepuffs finally get their moment in this hilarious Potter-inspired comedy. For seven years, a certain boy wizard went to a certain Wizard School and conquered evil… but this is not his story. This is the story of the Puffs, who just happened to be there, too. You never got the chance to meet these loyal, hardworking students while Harry, Hermione and Ron were stealing the spotlight with their adventures. A wacky tale for anyone who has never been destined to save the world, this play gives you a fresh look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three new heroes just trying to make it through magic school.

Dear Playmaker friends,We lost a much beloved member of our Playmaker family very suddenly on Saturday, September 22nd. Carla Stemmer died in her sleep after a full and giving life. Carla Anne Stemmer RN, BSN was a proud graduate of Niagara University always putting the care and rights of the patient first. She loved the energy of Emergency Medicine and the opportunity to exercise her considerable skills and abilities to help people. She was an active and vibrant member of the Playmakers, and was fun to watch on stage! Lately, wanting to learn more of the behind the scenes action, she was gearing up as Assistant PSM for the upcoming show, Sweeney Todd. Carla practiced her Catholic faith and looked forward every week to singing in the choir at Our Lady of Hope Catholic Church. Always full of spirit, Carla had a smile and outlook that lifted hearts. She will be sorely missed. Please come and honor our friend Carla at her funeral is this Saturday, October 13 at 11am at Our Lady of Hope Catholic Church (46639 Algonkian Pkwy, Sterling, VA 20165.) All are invited to a reception immediately following in the parish hall hosted by the Choir and friends of Carla.
My wife and I are residents at Ashby Ponds. We enjoyed your performance the evening of Sunday, August 26. I would of responded sooner but we were out of town. Your emcee introduced one of the songs, "Luck Be A Lady Tonight" as being sung by Old Blue Eyes Frank Sinatra in the movie "Guys and Dolls". If you google "Guys and Dolls" you will see a video of Marlon Brandon ( who played Sky Masterson") singing "Luck, Be A Lady Tonight". I believe Sinatra did record it on one of his albums. Just a little bit of trivia.
We had a great time on opening night!!! Excellent production!
Hi Friends! I am playing Diane de Poitier in THE MISTRESS CYCLE with Creative Cauldron in Falls Church. PM me if you would like to come! I have some very affordable ticket discount codes!!
Just heard that today is Miguel Dr Cervantes' birthday. Happy Birthday, Miguel! Thank you for the gift of Don Quixote, Sancho, and Dulcinea.

We had a great time at last night's performance of 42nd St. However, I left my phone at the school. An iCloud search shows that it's now somewhere on Cedarhurst Dr. I've been calling it from home phone but no answer. If you did find one, please feel free to PM me and I can come pick it up. Thank you!
