Shakespeare gives curtain call at Bowie stage -- Gazette.Net


The Annapolis Shakespeare Company gave its last performance at the Bowie Playhouse Aug. 17 and will hold future productions in Annapolis, where the company is headquartered, according to the company’s website.

Sally Boyett, founding artistic director of ASC, said the company was looking to expand and hold performances a minimum of five weekends per show.

“The playhouse has been a great home for us,” she said. “[But] the playhouse was not able to accommodate that growth.”

Boyett said the company, comprised of about eight staff members and between seven and 15 cast members per show, is still looking for a permanent home, but will hold performances at St. John’s College in Annapolis and at the company’s studio in Annapolis in the coming months.

The Bowie Playhouse is a city-owned and operated venue and is home to three theatre companies: 2nd Star Productions, Bowie Community Theatre and Prince George’s Little Theatre, according to the playhouse website.
