Harvest Moon Community Yoga
Tuesday, September 25th at 5pm
In the Masonic Amphitheatre
FREE

Hello people of Clifton Forge and the surrounding areas!
We are excited to invite you for a FREE Community Yoga event to coincide with the Harvest Moon and to take place on the ground of the Masonic Amphitheatre in downtown Clifton Forge, led by Greg Burns.

Yoga has become a word that most are very familiar with in our culture, yet still many folks have little knowledge about or experience in actually trying yoga. Local yogi's Joan Vannordsall, Pam Marshall, and Greg Burns are excited to offer the chance to come see, hear and experience what this yoga thing is all about and why so many people are finding wellness through their practice of doing yoga. Done properly yoga is so much more than just stretching the body. This event will offer the opportunity to experience Hatha Yoga (body postures & breath), Chair Yoga (yoga w/ accommodations) and Nada Yoga (yoga of sound).

Class to be held outside on the grounds of the Masonic Amphitheatre from 5-6pm.

We will talk briefly about yoga but mostly this event is to offer a direct experience of Yoga. There will be opportunity to ask questions after the event. No prior experience is necessary and the event is open to all. Yoga mats and blankets will be provided, so nothing is needed to attend although participants are encouraged to wear loose, comfortable clothing.

Any questions you have can be directed to Greg Burns at metta.vibrations@gmail.com.

Salute to Glen Campbell with Jeff Dayton

Salute to Glen Campbell with Jeff Dayton

Salute to Glen Campbell with Jeff Dayton
Friday, September 28, 2018 at 7:30 pm
In the John E. Hillert Auditorium
Tickets: $22/20/18

Jeff Dayton's 15 years as bandleader and guitarist with Glen Campbell were filled with shows, adventures and stories as they traveled and recorded together. Glen remains one of America’s best-loved and most-respected country/pop artists of all time, and it’s only natural that since his Alzheimer’s diagnosis and his recent passing, there would be a renewed demand for his music to be heard. Jeff has been answering that call with Salute to Glen Campbell, on tour now.

The show is filled with Glen’s hits, led by his former right-hand man. Dayton occasionally calls on fellow alumni from the tours and together they share the joys and fun, the stories behind the songs and an intimate reflection on the pain of losing an artist who was a great friend to us all.

The show has been playing to sellout crowds in New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Minneapolis and San Diego, and this year is adding Oklahoma, South Dakota, Iowa, Indiana, Wisconsin, Philadelphia and more.

Community Drum Circle
September 30, 3pm to 4pm
FREE

Two other Community Drum Circle Events are Planned for Oct. 14 and Oct. 28 at the same place and at the same time.

You are invited to a Community Drum Circle in downtown Clifton Forge!

The gathering is FREE and open to ALL with no experience necessary. Please bring any drum and rhythm instruments that you may have. The whole idea is to have FUN and feel free while also collectively creating music together in the moment.

Greg Burns will host the gathering and will bring a number of drums and rhythm instruments with him that can be used (gently please). He strongly encourages you to bring a drum, or bring a friend, or bring both a drum and a friend and come join the fun! Greg is a local Sound Practitioner who has regularly hosted drum circles in the Staunton area. This will be his first time hosting one in Clifton Forge!

After beginning with a brief moment of silence to bring us all together, the drum circle will unfold in a mostly organic fashion. The rhythms we play will be determined by the group that is present and sounds that want to come through us. We will drum and share for about an hour and give another moment of silent thanks before concluding.

We will gather in the outdoor grounds area of the Historic Masonic Theatre and Amphitheatre with the circle to begin at 3pm. The Amphitheater is located at 513 Church Street in downtown Clifton Forge, VA.

There is street parking available all through this area. The grounds provide ample space to bring a chair or throw down a blanket and bring the whole family.

With any questions about the drum circle please feel free to send Greg a message directly at metta.vibrations@gmail.com.

THE GUTHRIE BROTHERS, have been singing together as long as either of them can remember – a major reason for the perfect blend of their harmonies. Friendship and a shared passion for great vocal music, unite these two brothers in their quest for musical authenticity and perfection.

Drawing on their influences, THE GUTHRIE BROTHERS perform a musical journey from the 50’s through today, with an emphasis on the 60’s and 70’s Both Jock and Jeb play acoustic guitar and sing and are backed up by their great musicians. Their musical presentation is energetic and powerful yet soft around the edges.

You won't want to miss this opportunity to be up close and personal to enjoy the music, stories, and conversation of the Guthrie Brothers.

The Country Music Hall of Fame Show
Saturday, November 3 at 7:30pm
In the John E. Hillert Auditorium
Tickets: $20/18/15

Featuring Hall of Fame musicians Richard Kiser and Charlie McCoy Charlie McCoy, as well as Jason Coleman, the grandson of renowned Hall of Fame piano player Floyd Cramer.

Guitarist Kiser, a Chet Atkins protege and member of four halls of fame, tours about 140 shows per year around the country and works with schoolchildren regarding bullying, drug use and the need for abstinence. He is a strong supporter of Wounded Warriors, for which he does several shows per year pro bono. Among other honors, he has been named the International Country Gospel Music Association’s Instrumentalist of the Decade and was recently inducted into the Country Gospel Music Hall of Fame.

Charlie McCoy is a living legend on the harmonica. He has been a fixture in the Nashville recording scene for more than 50 years and can be heard on recordings with Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan and others. In addition to the more than 12,000 recording sessions he has been a part of, Charlie has released over 35 of his own albums. He also served as the musical director on the popular TV series “Hee Haw” and currently tours in concerts across the U.S. and around the world. Charlie has won a Grammy, two CMA Awards and seven ACM Awards, and in 2009, his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame was further proof of the lasting impact he has made on the music industry.

And Coleman, the youngest of the performers, plays piano regularly at Dollywood and joins Kiser and McCoy on several tours each year. He performed on television twice with his grandfather, Floyd Cramer, on “Nashville Now” and “Music City Tonight,” and played for the Country Music Hall of Fame Medallion Ceremony that recognized Cramer’s induction into the Hall of Fame in 1994. He has recorded or collaborated on numerous labels, including “LIVE! at Langdale: The Legacy of Floyd Cramer,” “Just Me and My Piano” and “On the Road Again.”

The unique combination of Jason’s piano, Richard’s guitar, and Charlie’s harmonica simply has to be heard rather than explained. Each artist’s unique style is put in the spotlight through the fun, familiar songs they play – and when their styles are put together, the result is something truly special.

This show is so popular on tour that is regularly sells out. Get your tickets today.

Its a Wonderful Life: Live from WVL Radio Theatre

It's a Wonderful Life: Live from WVL Radio Theatre

Tuesday, December 11th, 2018 – 7:00 pm - Tuesday, December 11th, 2018 – 9:00 pm

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

“IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE: LIVE FROM WVL RADIO THEATRE”

This 1940s radio style adaptation of Frank Capra’s film classic is a guaranteed holiday winner. The four-member company masterfully conquers multiple characters & sound effects while saving their radio station from a winter blizzard’s doom. A heartwarming, uplifting gift for audiences

The iconic story of George Bailey, who finds meaning in life during a fiscal crisis, was re-formulated from its original film version into a radio play, complete with droll and hilarious sound effects. It’s A Wonderful Life, is a stage adaptation presented as a 1940’s radio show, as adapted by Joe Landry.

The story focuses on George Bailey, a man who has given up his dreams in order to help others, and who faces a bank crisis not of his making. He falls apart and contemplates suicide on Christmas Eve. This brings about the intervention of his guardian angel, Clarence Odbody. Clarence shows George all the lives he has touched and how different life in his community would be had he never been born. But there is also a frame story. The actors are merely last minute substitutes who are caught in a snowstorm at the radio station. When the regular actors can’t get to the studio, stagehands and administrators are forced to improvise and play all the parts themselves, without rehearsal, in order to keep the station from closing down. So the actors are improvising both their roles and sound effects designed to create the ambiance of multiple places in the fictional town of Bedford Falls.

The four actors are extremely talented and they all rise to the occasion beautifully, each playing multiple roles, cast and crew, switching easily from one sentence in one voice to another sentence in another voice, which we can observe because we are privy to the behind-the-scene view. An actor plays George, and then his father, and then, and then….. Another actor plays a man, a woman, and later a tiny tot. There are at least 30 characters. There is an antic quality to the production as the characters litter the stage with pages of the scripts while they race back to their equipment to chomp on celery, bang a mock door or scrape a metal rod.

A wonderful throwback to a time-gone-by, perfect for all ages.

Last Illusion: The Premiere Tribute to The Trans Siberian Orchestra
Saturday, December 15 at 7:30 PM
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 last December with a production that left audiences amazed. By popular demand, we are pleased to present these talented musicians and technicians again 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 in 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.

Historic Masonic Theatre and Masonic Amphitheatre

Clifton Forge, VA  24422 Map

ALEXA ROSE Trio
Saturday, January 26, 2019, at 7:30pm
In the John E. Hillert Auditorium
Tickets: Main Orchestra: $20; Rear Orchestra and Front Balcony: $17; Rear Balcony: $15; Box Seats: $30.

Alexa Rose has the rare ability to find strikingly original melodies that nevertheless sound like they must have existed for a long time, stored away maybe in the ether of creativity, self-evident and awaiting discovery. Moving deftly between complex dexterity and heart-tugging familiarity, Rose achieves a sound that pushes gently alongside the bright vocal experimentalism of Joni Mitchell and Joanna Newsom while maintaining the brassy attitude and simple refrains that run straight through American roots music from mountain ballads to rock n roll.

Rose spent her formative years curating original music in the Blue Ridge, including Covington, releasing two albums in her early twenties. You can often catch her sporting her dusty Frye boots in some southern lagoon, or on the regional radio stations that spin her latest full-length release, "Low and Lonesome." Written on a hand me down guitar from her mother, the title track is a toast to Rose's heritage, and its anthem-like chorus haunts the listener with a somberness evocative of Gillian Welch.

A fun twist on a classic fairy tale.

Tickets: Adult: $37; Senior (55+): $35; Box Seats: $50; Groups of 8 or more save 10%

MEN IN THE PARISH BASEMENT?
WHAT’S A CHURCH LADY TO DO?

Find out when the talented touring company of actors stops in Clifton Forge for an afternoon of theatrical high-jinx.

“Rise Up O Men” gives the gents a chance to shine in the latest installment of the Church Basement Ladies musical comedy series.

This sidesplitting, uplifting peek into the lives of the rural Norwegian Lutherans who audiences first fell in love with in 2005 is the sixth chapter of the story begun in the original Church Basement Ladies. Rise Up O Men features familiar faces: Mrs. Mavis Gilmerson, Mrs. Vivian Snustad, and Mrs. Karin Engleson who would never leave the basement kitchen unattended, of course (who would make bars for the youth group meeting?). But as they busy themselves with preparations for their church's participation in the town’s 1964 Centennial Celebration, we get to see their coming and goings from the eyes of the menfolk, who have their own problems to solve. Karin’s husband Elroy, farmer Carl and Great War vet Arlo are joined in brotherhood by series staple Pastor E.L. Gunderson. Their camaraderie unites them as they deal with furnace salesmen, looming retirement, rival Protestant denominations, the Pastor’s bad jokes, and Arlene’s even-worse cooking.

Originally produced by Troupe America Inc, the original musical comedy, “The Church Basement Ladies”, opened at the Plymouth Playhouse in Minneapolis September 2005 to a response so enthusiastic that its initial run lasted two-and-a-half years. Five sequels have expanded the universe of these familiar and beloved comedies, affectionately known as the “Steel Magnolias of the Prairie,” making The Church Basement Ladies the most successful show in Troupe America’s 30-year history. Millions of Americans have discovered a heartfelt connection to the deeply funny church matriarch characters through regional and national touring productions.

**By contractual arrangement, there are only Adult, Senior and group ticket rates for this production.**
