HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — The Washington County Playhouse Dinner Theater in downtown Hagerstown is expected to close in April after more than two dozen seasons.

Co-owner Jeff Czerbinski tells The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown newspaper that the troubled economy and a lack of interest from the public have led to the theater’s closing.

Czerbinski says the dinner theater near City Hall has a small regular base of customers, but not enough to support its operations.

The playhouse’s website says there will be a farewell show in April with highlights from the past 27 seasons.
