VALDOSTA — Peach State Summer Theatre will host its annual Peach Party Bingo fundraiser at 6 p.m. on Monday, June 24, at Valdosta Country Club.

Prizes will be awarded, including a grand prize provided by Girardin Diamonds and Fine Jewelry. Company members from the 2013 Peach State Summer Theatre season will provide entertainment.

The Peach Party is sponsored by Heritage Bank of the South, Langdale Honda Kia, and Young, Thagard, Hoffman, Smith, Lawrence, and Shenton LLP.

Peach State Summer Theatre, or PSST!, is Valdosta’s premiere professional summer stock theatre. Each summer, dozens of singers, dancers, technicians, managers, and creators gather on the campus of Valdosta State University for nine weeks. During that time, they rehearse, build, and present three musicals in rotating repertory.

The 2013 Peach State Summer Theatre season marks the 24th year of VSU producing professional theatre for the city of Valdosta, the state of Georgia, and beyond. From 1990 to 2004, VSU produced the Jekyll Island Musical Theatre Festival. In 2005, the summer theatre program was relocated to the university and renamed PSST! Then, in 2006, it was designated the Official Musical Theatre of the State of Georgia by the Georgia Legislature.

The musical theatre season kicked off on June 1 with the opening of “The Sound of Music.” “The Marvelous Wonderettes” will open on Friday, June 14, followed by “A Little Night Music” on Friday, June 21. All three shows will be presented in rotating repertory through the weekend of July 13-14 on the Sawyer Theatre stage in VSU’s Fine Arts Building.

The Peach State Summer Theatre box office can be reached by calling (229) 259-7770.
