Here is the line-up of shows this season: Irving Berlin’s “Annie Get Your Gun” at the Culbreth Theatre, June 27 – July 6; “Red” by John Logan, at the Ruth Caplin Theatre, July 3 – July 13; “Tuna Does Vegas” by Ed Howard, Jaston Williams and Joe Sears, at the Helms Theatre, July 18 – August 3; “The Marvelous Wonderettes, by Roger Bean, at the Caplin Theatre, July 23 – August 3; and “Next to Normal”, with music by Tom Kitt, and book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey, at the Culbreth Theatre, July 25 – August 3. These productions are fun, well-done, and a great way to spend a summer evening in Charlottesville. If you plan to stay over after the show, call us about accommodations.
