Summer 2006

This production opened on August 9, 2006 and closed on August 14, 2006.

A Production of Children’s Summer Theatre!’s Swamp Meadow Community Theatre was excited to announce the premier of its Children’s Summer Theatre. We’d had such an overwhelming response to auditions for all of our plays and had seen such talent in young actors and actresses that we decided to sponsor a summer theatre for young people between the ages of 6 and 16.

Our performance was Matthias of Redwall , a play adapted by local playwright, Bob Hollis, taken from the Redwall Series written by Brian Jacgues. For more information contact Bob Hollis at 397-4740,

Auditions were held June 7-9, 2006.
