  • “Mick and Ernie Go To Therapy” by Mike Byham, Directed by Rory Dunn – This hilarious British-style comedy tells the story of two thieves who had just completed a job in North London. Trying to hide from the police, the two thieves run into an office and are confronted by a therapist who believes the two are there for couple’s counseling.

Cast includes Jesse Green, Chris Leatherman, and Tiffany Martin.
  • “From Birth” by Don Narkevic, Directed by Jim Zuna – In this comedy with a heart, two babies in the womb discover they are twin brother and sister, but their discoveries about each other and life go beyond the obvious as they head toward their due date.

'Buy a Seat' Plaque Campaign

With the Potomac Playmakers "Buy a Seat"  campaign, you can name a perpetual seat in the Lee Stine Auditorium for only $125. A commemorative 1.5" x 3" brass plate with a special inscription will be placed on the back of one of the seats in the theatre. We cannot ensure the specific placement of each plaque location, but early donors will be placed in the frontmost rows. Please consider this long lasting gift to show your ongoing support of the Potomac Playmakers. For a tax-deductible donation of $125 you can have your name, the name of a loved one, the name of your organization, or perhaps a memorial acknowledgement of a departed theater lover, displayed on a brass plaque that is mounted on the back of a seat. Show other patrons that you support the Playmakers and the Arts throughout the tri-state region. There are 94 seats available on which to purchase naming rights. Plaques will be placed on seats on a first-come, first-served basis. You are not purchasing the seat for your use during the season, and naming rights do not guarantee that you can sit in that seat when you come to a Playmakers' production. What you do get, in addition to the permanent plaque, is a free 1-year membership in the Potomac Playmakers, which gets you free admission to all of our Stage Door Productions, which are special events outside of the regular season shows.
