About Seven Keys to Baldpate

Novelist Billy McGee makes a bet with a wealthy friend that he can write a 10,000 word story within 24 hours. He retires to a summer mountain resort named Baldpate Inn, in the dead of winter, and locks himself in, believing he has the sole key. However he is visited during the night by a rapid succession of other people, including a corrupt politician, a crooked cop, a hermit, a feisty girl reporter, a gang of criminals, etc., none of whom have any trouble getting into the remote inn—there appear to be seven keys to Baldpate. McGee went to Baldpate to plot, but gets much more than he bargained for.

One of the most thrilling plays ever, this is a medley of mystery, farce and intrigue an especially fine example of the American mystery play and one of the outstanding dramatic successes of modern times.


About Georgetown Theatre Workshop

The Georgetown Theatre Workshop is a non-profit amateur theatre group, founded in 1974. A charter was signed on May 9, 1975.

The building that The Georgetown Theatre Workshop held most of their plays in, "The Old Grange," was sold in 2013. The home for Georgetown Theatre Workshop is now at the Perley School in Georgetown, on 51 North Street. 

The mission of the Georgetown Theatre Workshop is to introduce people to live stage performance. The public is welcome to attend the play productions for a nominal charge.

The GTW produces 3 plays a year, a fall, winter and spring production. 

Each year, the GTW funds a scholarship for a local high school senior majoring in theatre. Portions of our proceeds have benefitted the Peabody Library of Georgetown and the Gazette Santa Fund.

Now in our 44th season, the GTW welcomes newcomers. If you have ever had the urge to become involved with live theatre, are interested in season tickets for $30, or have questions, please contact Sue Clohecy at (978) 352-6367, or email at [email protected]
