Sunday, December 1 at 4pm
In the John E. Hillert Auditorium
Tickets: Main Orchestra: $20; Rear Orchestra and Front Balcony: $15; Rear Balcony: $12; Box Seats: $30.

Last Illusion filled our stage two Decembers ago with a production that left audiences amazed. An illness kept them off our stage last year, but we are pleased to present these talented musicians and technicians back this year to celebrate the magic of Christmas and the magic of TSO through the magic of Last Illusion.

Several years in the making, Last Illusion was formed with one sole purpose: to become the premier musical tribute to The Trans-Siberian Orchestra, whose founder, Paul O'Neill, died last year.

O'Neill explained the influences that led to his vision for Trans-Siberian Orchestra in an interview with The Morning Call last year. "[Effects-heavy concert production] was always part of the vision for Trans-Siberian Orchestra, [and] the mixing of classical with rock, which I obviously got from bands like Emerson, Lake and Palmer," he said. "The rock-opera aspect, which I love because it gives a third dimension, which I plagiarized from The Who."

Experience the magic for yourself!

Tickets: Main Orchestra: $15; Rear Orchestra and Front Balcony: $12; Rear Balcony: $10; Box Seats: $25.

The Shenandoah Academy of Dance, directed by Missy Belcher Floyd, returns to delight the entire family with "The Nutcracker". One of our most popular performances of last season, the ballet is based on the E.T.A. Hoffman tale, The Nutcracker and the King of Mice. Although the performance seen on stage today differs in detail from the original story, the basic plot remains the same. Clara dreams of her beloved Nutcracker winning the battle against the Mouse King, journeys through the land of the Snow Queen and her King, and arrives in the Land of Sweets and the Sugar Plum Fairy. The ballet, set to the timeless Tchaikovsky score, was first performed in 1892 by the Mariinsky Theatre, home to the Kirov Ballet.

Missy Belcher Floyd, Director, will continue to invite participants of all ages and levels of experience from local dance studios to perform in this production, as well! Experience the magic that is "The Nutcracker" with the Shenandoah Ballet this December!

The Highlands Community Bank Film Series
The Preacher's Wife (Rated PG)
Tues., Dec. 10 at 7pm
In the John E. Hillert Auditorium
at the Historic Masonic Theatre
**All Films are Free**

Amazon reviewer Mishka left this note:
"This film will always be one of our favorites. This contemporary re-make of "The Bishop's Wife" shines with wonderful performances by Denzel Washington, Courtney B. Vance, Jennifer Lewis, young Justin Pierre Edmund and the soul-stirring vocals of Whitney Houston. Turning despair into triumph - and containing just the right amount of humor - this film quietly resonates with faith and will put a song in your heart and a smile on your face. It's a genuine pleasure to recommend this family-friendly film."

About the film:
A cleric begins to doubt himself and is visited by an angel. The heavenly emissary is supposed to help the good reverend over his midlife crisis, but he is distracted by the cleric's lovely young wife. A remake with gospel music of the `The Bishop's Wife'.

We are pleased to present an ongoing series of classic, family and popular films, shown in the beautifully restored John E. Hillert Auditorium.

Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn't fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, this is Walter Hobbs (James Caan), a cynical businessman. After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results.

Having earned her theater degree from the University of Virginia at Wise, Jacy has directed numerous plays including The Yellow Boat, which won the Virginia One-Act State Championship,.

An Evening with Buddy Holly: featuring Robbie Limon

An Evening with Buddy Holly: featuring Robbie Limon

Historic Masonic Theatre and Masonic Amphitheatre
510 Main Street
Clifton Forge, VA  24422 Google Map

Robbie Limon won critical acclaim for his uncanny ability to replicate the vocal characteristics of period singers. Robbie has wowed audiences throughout the east coast and won numerous awards for his work in the syndicated theatrical productions of stage musicals about Buddy Holly.

This performance is based on a true story, happening in Greenwich Village, New York, in the late months of 1958. The audience is present during Buddy's band rehearsal as he prepares for the mid-western cavalcade of performers known as The Winter Dance Party of 1959. The stage vibe is intimate as Buddy's dialogue is totally directed at the audience; the tone is conversational and responsive to questions raised during the pre-show warm-up.

The show's premise provides context for an evening of Holly favorites as well as those of the Everly Brothers and Little Richard. Are we joking? No, these artists were friends of Buddy and he pays tribute to these influences in the show. This unique format is certain to give an inside look at a life which has been described as “eighteen months of fame and generations of influence”.

This performance is part of the SONA Bank Concert Series.

Tickets: Tickets: Main Orchestra: $25; Rear Orchestra and Front Balcony: $20; Rear Balcony: $15; Box Seats: $35.

Everyone is still talking about last year's performance by this talented young artist. By popular demand, we are bringing him for a Saturday night concert event sure to amaze.

Take a journey back in time to the life and music of "The Man in Black" performed by Cash Unchained. The band has been nationally sought after and has toured all over the U.S., bringing the sights and sounds of the legendary Johnny Cash.

Johnny Cash may not have been the greatest singer or musical technician, but his sound was unforgettable. Steady like a train, sharp as a razor, with the perfect blend of country, rock 'n' roll, and folk music, Cash paved the way for artists of all genres for years to come. Without Johnny Cash, we wouldn't have some of the finest music we've all enjoyed over the past 6 decades. Performed by some of the finest musicians in the state of Virginia, James Tamelcoff III captures Cash's trademark baritone voice, while his band delivers the infectious, driving rhythm of the Tennessee Three.

This performance is part of the SONA Bank Concert Series.


Tickets: Main Orchestra: $20; Rear Orchestra and Front Balcony: $18; Rear Balcony: $16; Box Seats: $35.
