GVT Conservatory Students to present Our Town

In addition to our vibrant mainstage season, Greenbrier Valley Theatre is especially proud of our education programming. We are currently celebrating students’ hard work in our after-school programs in our spring student showcases, including tonight’s GVTeens showcase, which features two plays, Bedtime Stories (As Told By My Dad) (Who Messed Them Up) by Ed Monk, and Check, Please by Jonathan Rand. Show times are at 6 and 8 p.m.

Next week, GVT Conservatory students are set to present Thornton Wilder’s classic work, Our Town, on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 15 and 16 at 7 p.m.

GVT’s Conservatory students are in eighth through twelfth grade and display a deep commitment to theatre arts as they study a wide range of acting styles, starting with

Ancient Greek theatre and moving forward to contemporary theatre. 

They are excited to perform Our Town for their friends and families. This subtle and heart-warming story is a look at simple, small-town life in the early 1900s, and the importance of appreciating the seemingly mundane.

For our part, we are thrilled to present our Conservatory students next week. “GVT's Youth Education staff is so proud of their work, and is incredibly excited for the community to see the final results!" said GVT Teaching Artist Lucas Hagley.

We hope you will join us for the GVT Conservatory students’ production of Our Town on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 15 and 16 at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $12 for general admission and $10 for children/seniors (60+). For tickets or more information, call GVT’s Box Office at 304-645-3838 or visit www.gvtheatre.org.
