Now Appearing!


Get your reservations now for the Chief Theatre and Suwannee Valley Players latest production Angel Street, a drama by Patrick Harrison produced by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc. A Broadway hit first produced under the title Gaslight that later on became a film, Angel Street tells the story of the Manninghams set in 19th century London. The Manningham's relationship is less than ideal as Mr. Manningham tries to convince his wife that she is going insane. This is from where the term "gaslighting" originates. Along with the help of an intuitive Scotland Yard Inspector Rough, Mrs. Manningham is able to regain her confidence. Together they take on her diabolical husband as the story unfolds. Join us to find out how this tale ends!

In addition to a great play, you will also be supporting a great cause. The Suwannee Valley Players will be donating half of their net profits to Another Way domestic violence and rape crisis center. We will also have information available about Another Way as October is domestic violence awareness month. The show dates are October 20, 21, 27 and 28 at 7:30pm and October 22 and 29 at 2:00pm.

You can also reserve seats by calling the Chief Theatre at 352-493-ARTS. We look forward to seeing you there!​

Casting Call

Putnam Co Spelling Bee

Suwannee Valley Players announces open auditions for The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, a Musical Comedy based on the book by Rachel Sheinkin, to be held on Friday, November 10th, at 6:30 pm and Saturday, November 11th, at 9:00 am at the Chief Theater.

To audition you will need to prepare 16 to 18 bars of a song. You will need music! You can use karaoke, bring your own pianist, recorded music, as long as there are no other vocals on the music. We need to hear you. We are checking into seeing if someone can site read enough to play for people, but as of this time it would be wise to find your own music. We will have our music director there to find out your vocal range as well. Along with the song, there will be cold readings from the script. We also are working on having "wacky" monologues available early on at the theater so we can get an idea of how well you can "let loose". More information on when those will be available to pick up will come later. This is a musical where adults are playing children. It is NOT a children's musical. You need to be at least 17 years old for the auditions. Please start getting the word out. There will be a more formal announcement coming later.

If you have questions you can e-mail the director at: Show Dates will be on March 2-18, 2018. This play is presented by special arrangements with Musical Theatre International.
