Now in its 52nd year, the Bowie Community Theatre, located at the Bowie Playhouse, is excited to announce its upcoming shows for its remainder of the 2018-2019 season.
A Piece of My Heart, running from November 2nd to 18th, provides an absorbing and moving experience about a tumultuous period in American history – the Vietnam War. It is a powerful, true drama about six women who went to Vietnam: five nurses and a Country-Western singer booked by an unscrupulous agent to entertain the troops.
Running from March 1st to 17th, 2019, The Women of Lockerbie takes place seven years after the 1988 disaster in which an American airliner was destroyed over Lockerbie, Scotland, by a terrorist bomb. The Livingstons have come to Lockerbie for a memorial service that is being held for the families of the victims. They meet the women of Lockerbie, who are determined to convert an act of hatred into an act of love by washing and returning the clothes to the victims’ families.
Bowie Community Theatre performs at the Bowie Playhouse. “We are a 150-seat indoor theatre, handicapped accessible, with ample parking located right here in Bowie, Maryland,” says Brad Eaton, the group’s president. We produce a mix of comedies, dramas, and mysteries. We’re a dedicated, hardworking, talented group of individuals who love the theatre. We give our time, energy, and passion to make sure that when a patron comes to the Bowie Playhouse to see one of our productions, they are going to sometimes laugh, sometimes cry, and sometimes go away thinking about how something on stage moved them.
