Glory Bea: A Shenandoah Christmas Story

Selah Theatre Project presents: GLORY BEA: A Shenandoah Christmas Story

GLORY BEA: A Shenandoah Christmas Story, by Rich Follett and Larry Dahlke, set in the 1930’s in the Shenandoah Valley and the Depression has hit the valley residents. The return of the Wayside Theatre holiday favorite is being presented by Selah Theatre Project, in partnership with Lord Fairfax Community College on December 10-12 & 17-19, 2021. The diverse cast of actors from Winchester, Frederick, Clarke and Warren Counties are mixed with community actors, young actors ages 6-13 and LFCC students.

The two-act musical is partly based on real Valley families and events during the Great Depression, when families needed work and the CCC was providing jobs creating the Skyline Drive on the Blue Ridge. For the Thorne family, many promises are made. The Pineville Christmas Eve pageant will not be complete without its Christmas Cedar Tree. But, the blizzard of ’33 is causing havoc on the family members trying to get home for Christmas through the blinding snowstorm. It’s Christmas Eve – anything is possible on Christmas Eve. Hard times, an argument over a tree, a baby born at Christmas, a little girl lost in the snow, redbirds and angels…and a miraculous homecoming.

GLORY BEA: A Shenandoah Christmas Story will be performed at Lord Fairfax Community College in the William H. McCoy Theatre on December 10-12 & 17-19, 2021. Tickets are $15 for General Admission/$12 for Students or Seniors 55+. Patrons are being asked to bring an unwrapped toy for Embrace Treatment Foster Care. Seating is limited.

Summer Music Theatre: Grease

With its raucous and rambunctious humor, Grease satirically captures the age-old desire for high schoolers to be provocative and rebellious. Featuring memorable hits such as “Summer Nights,” “Greased Lightnin’” and “We Go Together,” it remains one of Broadway’s longest running shows. With this production, SSMT takes a fresh look under the hood of this old favorite, revealing how it has stood the test of time. This show has a suggested rating of PG-13 (depictions of smoking, foul language, and sexual situations; pyrotechnical effects and smoke) and may not be suitable for audiences under the age of 13.

Performances will run Thursday, July 1 through Sunday, August 1, and seating will be limited to allow space between family/friend groups. For more details about how SSMT will be keeping our staff and patrons safe, visit our COVID-19 Safety page. Due to licensing restrictions, this production will have live performances ONLY, there are no digital viewing options.

The Little Mermaid

Italia Performing Arts is pleased to present its Summer Show 2021: our own adaptation for dance of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale “The Little Mermaid”. This year, our dancers in every style will be featured in this one two act production.

We are very pleased to have secured this beautiful and historic theatre for our show. It is also large enough that, together with the Governor’s loosened restrictions, we should now have plenty of tickets to sell – using alternate rows and with spacing between family groups. We will still need to ask everyone to follow any continuing restrictions on face coverings, social distancing etc.

This year we are presenting three performances, which will be slightly different:
– Friday June 25th, 6:00 pm: featuring Winchester Modern & Jazz and Tap dancers
– Saturday June 26th, 1:00 pm: featuring Edinburg Ballet and Acro dancers
– Saturday June 26th, 5:00 pm: featuring Winchester Ballet and Acro dancers

The main cast and some of the older dancers will appear in all three performances, and some others in two of them. Parents have been informed when their students will dance.

To buy tickets, go to or call 435-222-2849.
Premium seats: $30 ($25 under 16)
Regular seats: $20 ($15 under 16)
Any tickets still available on the day of the show will still be sold only through TutuTix. No tickets will be sold at the door.
