December 29th, 2009 —

There once was a little theater that sat empty for most of the year. A darkened marquee gave no hint as to what excitement might grace the stage. Such a sad and lonely existence.

But all that has changed in recent years as people, lights and activities have created a year ’round performance venue. Stage productions, lyric and musical theater, jazz, blues, folk and classical concerts, and screen presentations continue the great traditions of this historic building. What a treat for the community.

Free movie night at the Howmet Playhouse began in 2008 with sponsorship from the HarborLight Credit Union, White Lake Community Library and the Arts Council of White Lake. Free admission, 50 cent popcorn and the opportunity to view a classic film has become a new tradition for the White Lake area community.

Upcoming schedule includes:
Jan. 7 Inherit the Wind (1960)
Feb. 4 Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)
Mar. 4 Dr. No (1962)
Apr. 1 Harvey (1950)

White Swan Inn B&B is just across the street from the Howmet Playhouse in the “theater district”.
