The December meeting of the Board of Directors was conducted on ZOOM.

The 2021 Budget was approved and we all had a good time talking and getting into the holiday spirit. Optimism about the 2021 Season was expressed by many.  And it is hoped that conditions will allow us to be back in the barn and doing shows for YOU!

Among those "attending" were Michael McClaine, Dustin Bond, Linda Gjesvold, Jack Randall Earles, Drew Brattain, Caroline Good [our Zoom Host], Ric & Shelly McFadden, Jim Rambo, Sandi Rossok, Anna Harris, and Jay Prewitt.

Our newly designed Website is now online - so please check out the design.

Thanks to all!!

We at Putnam County Playhouse are optimistic that in 2021 we will be able to produce a full season of entertainment for you.  Of course we will be watching developments closely.  We will also follow all protocols that are put into place both locally and on the federal level.

With those things in mind, we have chosen a season that we hope will give you live theatre that you have enjoyed at the Hazel Day Longden Theatre.  Next year we will also celebrate our 60th season of operation.

We will present two premieres - one musical and one comedy - and two popular shows - a second musical and a classic comedy.  Please watch the latest edition of "Conversations With Jack" to find out the titles.

The superstitions about the theatre "Ghost Light" are legion.  The stories about theatre "ghosts" and traditions could fill a book and probably have!

Many theaters forced to close during the pandemic have renewed the tradition of ghost lights as a way of indicating the theaters will re-open. 

The Ghost Light burns brightly on the stage of the Hazel Day Longden Theatre.  On November 17, we will be announcing our productions for our planned 60th Anniversary Season in the summer of 2021.  Please watch here and on Facebook for the titles we have selected.

We are cautiously optimistic about our possibilities!  

Thank you for your continued support.  And we hope to see you at the barn in 2021!

In the meantime, the ghosts are welcome to the stage.
