PSST! in full summer swing

VALDOSTA — With the opening of “42nd Street” this past weekend, Peach State Summer Theatre is in full swing. All three of the 2014 season shows are playing.

Audiences can catch three musicals: “Mary Poppins,” “Smokey Joe’s Cafe,” “42nd Street” running in rotating repertory. Catch one or catch them all.

Through July 27, audiences can choose a show five days per week. On most Wednesdays and Saturdays, audiences can even choose one show in the afternoon and a different show that same evening.

PSST! is a fine opportunity to see professional musical theatre here in Valdosta. Peach State is Georgia’s official musical theatre for the state. The PSST! troupe is a combination of actors selected during theatre auditions conducted throughout the Southeastern United States, Valdosta State University Theatre & Dance faculty and students, and former VSU, PSST! and Jekyll Island performers.

Combining the 15 years on Jekyll with the 10 PSST! seasons in Valdosta, VSU has served as the umbrella organization for 25 years of professional summer musicals. This season, PSST! celebrates that quarter of a century of commitment.

This commitment shows in both PSST!’s dedication on stage and behind the scenes. Peach State tickets are going fast, especially for the popular “Mary Poppins,” and if you haven’t already made reservations, you may wish to make your commitment to Peach State Summer Theatre today.

Reservations, more information: Visit or call (229) 259-7770.

The Valdosta Daily Times is PSST!’s corporate sponsor.
