What Is the Lancaster Players Playhouse?

What was once a fire station in White Stone, Virginia, has since been transformed into a haven for fans of community theater. It’s a three-minute drive from our inn and vineyard! When you’re not enjoying all of the unique, top-notch experiences at our inn, consider making reservations for a performance at The Playhouse.

Step inside to discover a small, intimate atmosphere with sixteen tables for cabaret-style theater. Thanks to generous donations and the support of the community, it continues to get upgrades like an exceptional sound system that can sync with hearing aids and new air conditioning.

What Performances Are There?

No matter what your age or preference, you can usually find a performance at The Playhouse that you’ll love. There are three shows per year, ranging from dramas and mysteries to musicals and staged readings. 

You have your choice between the matinee performances at 3:00 p.m. and regular performances that begin at 8:00 p.m. Be sure to arrive one hour prior to all of the showings so that you can enjoy the social hours with a cash bar and signature cocktails related to each performance!

Can I Get Involved?

Yes, you can! The Lancaster Players pride themselves on being a group of dedicated volunteers, and you’re more than welcome to join the team. Whether you’d like to be a director, actor, or work behind the scenes, there’s a role for you. It’s a great way for people to get involved, make some memories, and learn more about the theater scene.
