The Bowie Playhouse

The Bowie Playhouse is owned and operated by the City of Bowie and is home to four groups: Bowie Community Theatre, 2nd Star Productions, Prince George's Little Theatre (PGLT) and the Annapolis Shakespeare Company. It is a 150 seat indoor theater and has been in operations since 1975 and renovated in 2008. It operates year round and offers plenty of free parking at the nearby White Marsh Park.

The recent renovation has ensured that the Playhouse is handicap accessible, and amplification devices are available for hearing impaired patrons. If you require special accommodations to attend a show, please feel free to contact the BCT hotline at (301) 805-0219 to ensure we're prepared for your arrival at our performance.


As mentioned, the Playhouse is located in White Marsh Park off Route 3 in Bowie on the southbound side between Routes 450 and 50.

The official address is:

16500 White Marsh Park Drive
Bowie, MD 20715

Phone inquiries can be directed to (301) 809-3078 for Playhouse specific information.
