All-American Patriot Party

July 18, 2020

Alright friends and family! Here we go! 

We are holding an all-American patriot party! 

It will be held on July 18, 2020. 

The first part of the day from 11AM-2PM will be a plate lunch brought together by many friends to help us save the Bayou Playhouse and keep us in Lockport! 

Don’t worry we have a lot of friends that are going to help us too! It’ll be a blast and we hope you can make it with your family! 

That plate lunch from 11AM-2PM will consist of: 

  • Grillades

  • White Beans

  • Jambalaya

  • & a sweets sale! 

And then from 5-8 we will have a very special, limited deck party (of course social distancing will be in order). We have some very wonderful people that will be cooking a pig! Yes, you heard us! A pig! 

So that private patriot party will be on the deck or pick up to bring home and eat! 

and from 5-8 - It will have: 

  • Pig (of course) 

  • Baked beans 

  • Fresh French bread 

  • Cookie cake!! 

AND! (If you think it can’t get better) - We will have a super cool dunk tank, to dunk favorite staff members, photo wall and some other games to spend the day (if you want to hang with us). 

And fresh squeezed lemonade too! 

It’s a red, white and YOU party! 

We want to stay in town and keep creating magic, but truly yall, we can’t survive without community. 

Let’s ring the bell and share! 

Get in touch with our one and only, Camille Griffin if you have any questions! 






To our beloved friends and family - 

We've postponed having to do this, well, because frankly we don’t want to. We've waited for more information to roll in on what is expected from closures and social distancing. 

Ahh, but here it is the dreaded notification we have come to make. With COVID19 running savagely through our community, we have no choice but to temporarily “go dark” and stop shows indefinitely. We don’t want this to be but following the rules we must. 
Our season was fun-filled and we were ready to implement new adventures for the community and for our troupe.
There are so many emotions and feelings to have to all of this but the one thing that hurts the most, is not being able to perform for all of you. To create magic on our stage is what our crew and performers troupe live for. 
With heavy hearts we ask you to help us stay open as well. Currently we are stopping and turning off a lot of our utilities in order to bring the cost down drastically. 
We do have a donation link embedded throughout our website, if you so kindly choose to help us. Five dollars would make a difference to help us stay afloat. 
We still can’t believe this is happening to our community but we are doing everything to make sure the theater is clean for when you do come back. 

We will keep you updated on new developments and new timelines! Consider subscribing to our newsletters to receive updates to your email. 

Until the next time we see you,
Stay healthy, go outside, find peace and call your elderly love ones. 

Remember this is only an intermission.
