The San Miguel Playhouse Celebrates Its Second Anniversary
By Mary Norquist
On October 15, 2014, The San Miguel Theater Company opened for its first production, Moonlight and Magnolias. In the last two years, the theater company changed its name to The San Miguel Playhouse which seemed more appropriate considering all the productions it was hosting. Many of the productions were produced by the Playhouse itself and many were presented by other production companies including Players Workshop, The Ten Minute Play Festival, Marshall Mason, The Fringe Festival, and many others.

The founding board members wanted to establish a theater like no other in San Miguel. It’s unique “thrust” stage enables all seats in the house to be good ones. And with a seating capacity of 125 it remains intimate but large enough to accommodate good sized audiences. They also wanted to provide a sizable dressing room area and a back stage area large enough to easily hold props and scenery. Because of the design of the stage and back stage area, the performing space is flexible and can be expanded if needed.
Other amenities include free secured parking and a Taxi Concierge to insure there are taxies available after each show. Additionally, there is a wine and beer bar in the lobby available before the shows and during intermissions.
To start the third year of great performances, We Three Production Company, presents Driving Miss Daisy starting on November 11th and continuing for an eight show run. This classic play is a timeless, searing, funny, and ultimately hopeful meditation on race relations in America, told through the complex relationship between two of popular culture’s most enduring characters. It stars Judy Newell as Daisy; Harold Dean James as Hoke; and Mick Diener as Boolie, Daisy’s son.
Opening night tickets are 350 pesos and include a party after the show with appetizers, wine, beer and mixing with old and new friends including the cast and crew. Other performances are 200 pesos and tickets may be purchased at Galeria Ensuenos, Mesones 57(Corner Mesones & Relox)between 10:00 and 2:00 every day except Tuesdays.
Come help celebrate The San Miguel Playhouse and its contribution to the cultural scene in San Miguel! And a huge Thank You to all of the friends and supporters of the Playhouse and live theater in San Miguel!
