The Beaux’ Stratagem follows the adventures of two charming Manhattan rakes, Archer and Aimwell, as they work their way through Lichfield, Kentucky society in search of a wealthy wife. Whichever one of them marries ‘their wife,’ they’ve agreed to share equally in her fortune. The plan starts going hilariously off the rails, of course, when Aimwell actually falls in love with their intended target.

Call for Proposals – 2023-24 Season

Our theme for this season is “Welcome Home” – our focus is on our return to a full in-person season, and putting the “community” back in community theatre.

As such, we are seeking proposals for productions that fit this theme, especially in telling stories that are not heard as often – stories focused on women, queer stories, immigrant stories… stories that show the experiences of everyone in our community.


Interested in submitting a proposal, or becoming a part of the season selection process? Please see full information here.


As Greenbelt Arts Center begins to allow in-person programming once again, we are continuing to require all audience members to wear a mask over nose and mouth during their entire time in the facility.
