PSST!: Round Two!

VALDOSTA — With tonight’s opening of “The Marvelous Wonderettes,” Peach State Summer Theatre presents its second show of the 2013 season.

“The Sound of Music” opened two weeks ago. “A Little Night Music” opens next week.

Once the third show opens, all three productions will rotate on Valdosta State University’s Sawyer Theatre stage through mid-July.

The Valdosta Daily Times has been PSST!’s proud corporate sponsor for several years and is pleased to be associated with this fine, professional theatre program again.

And PSST! is just that: Professional theatre in Valdosta.

Peach State features casts whose members are professional actors in town for these shows, as well as performers whom many may recognize from Valdosta State University Theatre & Dance’s productions. This year, the cast includes local children in “The Sound of Music” and long-time Theatre Guild Valdosta favorite Joanne Griner in “A Little Night Music.”

PSST! is an extension of VSU’s theatre program, but it is also a separate entity. Peach State is a working theatre troupe, supervised by business director H. Duke Guthrie and artistic manager Jacque Wheeler.

 The Georgia General Assembly has also designated Peach State as the state’s official musical theatre.

If you’ve never attended a Peach State show, now is the time to do so. But you need to make the move to see these shows soon. They are all about to be running. Come July 14, PSST! lowers the curtain for another year.
