Prepare to be dazzled and delighted during The Prizery’s 2017 Summer Theatre season.
Venture into the woods for Sondheim’s Tony Award-winning musical classic INTO THE WOODS. This witty and theatrical gem will amaze. The eighth Summer Theatre season will include a lively and patriotic revue, RED, WHITE, & BROADWAY, featuring the professional cast as well as local vocalists. No Summer is complete without a family reunion and The Prizery is hosting the weird and wonderful devilishly delightful THE ADDAMS FAMILY. This musical comedy will bring joy to family members of all ages.
Each summer, The Prizery brings a professional cast and crew to Halifax County to perform three shows for the community and visitors. The actors and crew members come from all over the Southeastern United States. The shows are well-known, classics, full of energy, beautiful sets, dazzling costumes, and superb singing and acting. Chris Jones directs each show and a visiting musical director lends their talent for the summer. Tickets are available by calling The Prizery Box Office at 434.572.8339, online, and in-person at 700 Bruce Street. The Prizery is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
