On Friday, December 8, Virginia Stage Company is hosting the first of their ‘NightOUT’ events for the LGBTQ community featuring A Christmas Carol, the holiday classic tale of redemption at the Wells Theater in downtown Norfolk. 

For the first time in five years, Virginia Stage Company presents a new adaptation of the Dickens classic, featuring a new script, sets, costumes, music and even a new Scrooge. Directed by Patrick Mullins, this song-filled adaptation is new to the Norfolk stage.

 

 

 

 

 

Tickets for the NightOUT performance on Friday, December 8 are $25, a discount of 50% (available for Dec. 8 only.)  To purchase discounted tickets, use the promo code NIGHTOUT at checkout. To order, visit the Virginia Stage Company.   

Additionally, on December 13, Virginia Stage will open their doors for Theatre for Everyone, a performance specially designed as a theater experience for individuals of all abilities (with and without special needs). Patrons are invited to come early and participate in a hands-on exploration of A Christmas Carol to learn about the show before you see it, from props and costumes to lights and sounds.

This performance will be without complete blackouts and with lower volume levels for some sound effects. Other slight modifications have been made to accommodate the audience.  All tickets are $25 in advance and “pay what you can” starting one hour before the performance. 

Virginia Stage Company is southeastern Virginia’s leading theatre destination, serving an audience of over 70,000 annually both at the Wells Theatre and throughout the community. Virginia Stage Company’s mission is to “enrich, educate, and entertain the region by creating and producing theatrical art of the highest quality.”

A Christmas Carol runs through December 24.
