BEACH WEEK

The 15th Annual Sarah Metzger Memorial Play
By Diana Metzger
Presented by The Round House Teen Performance Company

March 17 – 19, 2017

Buy-tickets-buttonIt’s 2002. Take one beach house, four high school girls, and a week without parental supervision. Add (just a few) boys and (maybe some) booze. What’s the worst that could happen? From Diana Metzger comes a hilarious play about the D.C.-area tradition of Beach Week, and what happens when a group of high school graduates only has seven days left to come to grips with the rest of their lives.

The Round House Theatre Teen Performance Program is a pre-professional program for the next generation of theater artists. Round House gathers the region’s most creative young theater artists and provides mentorship to them as they work on a play at our theater. Students selected shadow productions on the RHT stage, attend events and master classes with RHT company members, and work closely with professional artists and practitioners at every step of the process.

The program culminates in The Sarah Metzger Memorial Play which is directed, designed, stage managed, and performed by high school students.  The Sarah Play was established by the Metzger family and friends to celebrate the memory of Sarah Metzger, an inspiring and active member of the theatre community, who was killed in an automobile accident during her freshman year of college.
