Virginia Stage Season 39 - Off to Record Start

Tickets for Virginia Stage Company’s Season 39 have been on sale for just a few days and have broken multiple sales records, seeing more than a threefold increase on opening day over last season. This combined with season membership sales, that have already exceeded all of last season, shows promise for what was anticipated to be Virginia Stage’s most blockbuster season in years.

With beloved subject matter such as Ring of Fire, the story of Johnny Cash, Pride and Prejudice, and Sherlock Holmes’ The Hound of the Baskervilles, Virginia Stage hopes to throw open the doors to the community and show that theatre is an art form meant for everyone. To compliment these exciting productions, Virginia Stage is also producing the Pulitzer Prize Winning Drama Disgraced and taking audiences on a trip back to the civil rights era with The Parchman Hour: Songs and Stories of the ’61 Freedom Riders. By popular demand, returning are A Christmas Carol and one of the most popular productions in Virginia Stage History, the gospel musical Crowns.

Season tickets are available now from $99 - $299, including flexible “Theatre-On-Demand” packages that allow you to come to whatever show you would like. Single tickets range from $20 - $79, with discounts for military, students, and groups. More info and tickets at vastage.org.

RING OF FIRE: THE MUSIC OF JOHNNY CASH -- CREATED BY RICHARD MALTBY, JR. AND CONCEIVED BY WILLIAM MEADE
Playing September 13 to October 1, 2017

Explore love, family, and heartache through the tumultuous biography of Johnny Cash. This energetic and exhilarating musical rocks more than two dozen of Cash's iconic hits. This production is most enjoyed by ages 10 and up.

THE PARCHMAN HOUR: SONG AND STORIES OF THE ’61 FREEDOM RIDERS -BY MIKE WILEY
October 25 to November 12, 2017

In this co-production with Norfolk State University Theatre Company, journey through the Deep South with the pioneers who fought discrimination and paved the way for the future. Adapted from real life accounts of the 1961 Freedom Rides, this play shares these struggles through music that ranges from Bob Dylan to spirituals. This stirring play contains racially charged language and scenes of violence and is recommended for patrons 13 and older.

A CHRISTMAS CAROL
BY CHARLES DICKENS, ADAPTED BY PATRICK MULLINS
December 6 to December, 24 2017

It wouldn’t be the holidays without Dickens' A Christmas Carol at the Wells Theatre. Experience the childlike wonder of this heartwarming story that follows the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future as they take Ebenezer Scrooge on a journey of redemption where he learns the power of kindness and compassion. This play is recommended for all ages and, in our opinion, is better the more kids you bring.
