Playhouse Summer Season

So many area events from which to choose . . . but if you're looking to treat yourself and guests, you can't go wrong with the Woodstock Playhouse. Saw The Producers last night with visitors from out of town and we all loved it!

Intermission @ The Producers
The Mel Brooks musical finishes up tonight at 8 (you might still be able to get tickets for the final performance), and then it's on to Legally Blonde (July 5 to 15), Equus (July 19 to 21) and Chicago (August 2 to 11).
