HAGERSTOWN ? The Potomac Playmakers will move to their new home at the former Tusing Warehouse building in January 2008.
Ruth Ridenour, the community theater group's president, said the Playmakers inked a deal earlier this month to rent the building at 58 E. Washington St. in Hagerstown for rehearsals and performances.
For 82 years, the Playmakers performed at the Women's Club on Prospect Street, but issues about seating, among other things, forced the organization to find another venue, she said.
"We're very excited," Ridenour said. "We're anxious to get help from everybody. It's going to be so nice."
The Playmakers are scheduled to christen the stage Jan. 18-20 and Jan. 24-27 for a performance of "Smokey Joe's Cafe," said Christina McAllister, a Playmakers member. A housewarming party will be held in their new digs after the Jan. 19 show, she said.
