The dinner theater that hides behind Hagerstown’s City Hall in the shadow of the town’s mascot, Little Heiskell, was opened by Bob Hagerman in 1985. In 1986, Bruce Levin and a partner, bought it and changed its name to The Washington County Playhouse. In 1998, Kelly Jenkins-Moreland and her mother, Dixie Odermatt bought it and operated it until August of 2009, when the current owners, Loretta and Jeff Czerbinski, took over.
Since its beginning, The Playhouse has been known for producing popular and much-loved Broadway musical classics, such as “Oklahoma,” “South Pacific,” “Annie Get Your Gun,” and “The Sound of Music,” as well as the occasional light comedy or drama. During Kelly’s tenure, musical reviews became very popular with audiences, and are today a frequent fixture at The Playhouse.
Today’s Washington County Playhouse will continue to evolve, bringing to local audiences classic Broadway, comedies, dramas, revues, and more current theatrical works. And, we will continue to provide a varied dinner buffet and full bar. Our objective is to provide professional quality productions, extraordinary customer service, and good food & drink. We will do everything in our power to provide our guests with what we hope they will perceive as unsurpassed value in live entertainment.
