Kings Playhouse in Georgetown is bringing stories to life in a different way this summer with creative opportunities to enjoy local art, share a treat and tea with friends, learn about history and hauntings, and tap into some youthful fun.

Kings Playhouse fine art gallery features paintings from Carolyn Hessinger, Sandi Komst, Mary MacLean, Connie O’Brien, Cheryl Richards, Kathy Stuart, Lorraine Vatcher and Margaret Sutton Wailes.

New this summer, the Kings Playhouse offering a Brass Rubbing Experience. Using traditional brass tablets, visitors can print their own ancient images to take home. Tea and biscuits included.

Act! Dance! Create! summer camps take place August 3–7 and 17–21. Each week children will have the opportunity to explore their creativity through theatre, dance, puppetry, outdoor exploration and visual art.

Theatre for Young Children is presented on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 11 am in the Playhouse Gardens. Seated in the grass, little ones are invited to enjoy two reimagined fairytales, The Princess & The Pea and The Princess & The Frog.

Celebrate the A.A. Macdonald Gardens weekly for Sunday Afternoon High Tea. Expect traditionally inspired, locally infused High Tea with sandwiches and sweets—fancy hats and a game of croquet is optional.

Also new this summer are Picnics in the Park. Order a picnic lunch with local soda, charcuterie and seasonally inspired sweets. Blanket provided.

Haunted Georgetown walks through the historic town are available daily by reservation only and are offered in English and French.
