We three perform on Friday night at 7pm and Saturday matinee at 2pm and we think you should come see the show to help us solve our *little* disagreement.

It is with a heavy heart that we must postpone the spring musical Matilda until further notice due to MCPS schools being closed for the next 2 weeks.

"I want to thank the cast, crew, staff, parents, and community for their continued support for our students. This unusual situation is evolving hourly but, the Midnight Players are committed to show our production of Matilda in one form or another."- William (Billy) Lewis, Poolesville High School Drama Director

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year to all of our Midnight Players families

11/22/2015

Our Fall 2015 play, "Rule of Three," has come to a close. It was, however, a great success! While the Midnight Players family is sad to leave such an amazing show behind, we also want to celebrate all those who helped make the show fantastic! Hats off to Mr. Nathaniel Gordon for his wonderful leadership of the Midnight Players and his highly professional direction, Mr. Jeff Jones and Ms. Beth Fayard Jones for their marvelous support of our club, not to mention their tech direction and their beyond-phenomenal sets, Gracie Jones for her many talents (including scenic painting,) Ms. Nanci Niebauer for somehow managing to costume every single actor (without going insane!), and our multitude of fabulous adult volunteers. We sincerely could not have pulled it off without you.
We had a great time creating "Rule of Three," and we hope the community enjoyed watching the show as much as we enjoyed performing it!

11/20/2015

Opening night went FANTASTIC! We've still got 3 more shows: come out tonight at 7pm, or Saturday at 2pm and 7pm to see Rule of Three!
