Picnic Theatre Company’s Casablanca at Dumbarton House to Benefit Courage for Kids


casablanca picnic theater to benefit c4kOn June 15, 16 and 17, 2016, please join Courage for Kids and Picnic Theatre Company at Dumbarton House for a one-act garden party theatre performance of Casablanca, from Hollywood’s golden era!  This play stages Lux Radio Theatre’s adaptation hosted by director Cecil B. DeMille and an all-star cast for millions of American listeners in the 1940s.  Dumbarton House theatregoers are invited to bring picnic blankets for garden seating. Be sure to come early to find the perfect place. Enjoy a wine and music reception at “Rick’s Cafe”, where shifting war time alliances, romance, danger and redemption await.  The Washington Post has called Picnic Theater Company one of the “culture party hybrids taking Washington by storm” with short performances of classics.

Rain or shine the show will go on! In the event of rain, the reception and performance will take place in Belle Vue Ballroom.
