Five high school students from different walks of life endure a Saturday detention under a power-hungry principal (Paul Gleason). The disparate group includes rebel John (Judd Nelson), princess Claire (Molly Ringwald), outcast Allison (Ally Sheedy), brainy Brian (Anthony Michael Hall) and Andrew (Emilio Estevez), the jock. Each has a chance to tell his or her story, making the others see them a little differently -- and when the day ends, they question whether school will ever be the same.
William Wallace is the medieval Scottish patriot who is spurred into revolt against the English when the love of his life is slaughtered. Leading his army into battles that become a war, his advance into England threatens King Edward I's throne before he is captured and executed, but not before becoming a symbol for a free Scotland.
The Virginia Opry Celebrates Its Theme, "Music Is Love"
Bill Pinkney's Original Drifters "Be My Valentine" Show
Emcee Alfred "Mustard" Dearing, Sr.
Saturday, February 5, 2022 - 7 PM at The Historic Masonic Theatre
Tickets $25 - $40 Based on Seating Location Box Seats must be purchased in pairs (Includes a $5 Fee)
Bill Pinkney’s Original Drifters(R) will perform at the “Be My Valentine” Show as newly inducted members of The Virginia Opry on stage at The Historic Masonic Theatre on Saturday, February 5, 2022. This will be their fifth performance at the venue.
Governor Ralph Northam signed “Senate Bill 283” on March 31, 2020 to designate The Virginia Opry as the Commonwealth of Virginia’s official Opry, but, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Bill Pinkney’s Original Drifters(R) August 2020 induction and performance at The Historic Masonic Theatre was postponed.
Pinkney's legacy group is hailed as “The best act of its genre on the music scene today,” engaging in compliance with all States’ Truth in Music Laws, and via a registered United States Patent and Trademark Office Federal Service Mark for the name Bill Pinkney's Original Drifters(R), expanded through litigation to include "The Original Drifters" and "The Drifters."
The internationally famous doo-wop and R&B group The Drifters was co-founded by Bill Pinkney in 1953. Thirty-five years later in 1988, original members Pinkney, organizer Clyde McPatter, Gerhart Thrasher, and four later Drifters were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which filmed PINKNEY’s oral history in 2001 for its Legends Series.
“Be My Valentine” Show at The Virginia Opry will feature the famous quartet performing such favorites as “Money Honey,” “This Magic Moment,” “Please Stay,” “Dance with Me,” “There Goes My Baby,” “Under the Boardwalk,” “Up on the Roof,” and “Stand by Me.”
“Like fine art, great music stays with us through the years to enjoy and to share.”... See MoreSee Less
We still have a few available for The Ricky Tims Master Class Quilt Retreat February 17 through February 19, 2022
The Ricky Tims Master Class Quilt Retreat February 17 through February 19, 2022
The Ricky Tims Master Class Quilt Retreat offers a comprehensive quilt curriculum for all quilters. This customized event will teach, encourage, inspire, and will most certainly keep you entertained. Ricky demystifies seemingly complex concepts and teaches mastery of unique techniques. The sessions on creativity will show you how to harness the power of the ever-elusive muse of creativity.
The sessions cover improvisational patchwork, no-pins precision curved piecing, design guidelines, color theory, dyeing basics, and machine quilting tips that work for both domestic and long arm. You will learn beautiful outline appliqué and innovative piecing techniques—most of which don’t require a quarter-inch seam! Ricky’s goal is to change how you think when it comes to quilting. He will help you to reevaluate your quilting experience and give you the ability to define who you are as a quilter. The seminar will benefit all quilters—beginners or experienced—traditional or art. In addition to the methods and techniques being taught, there will be plenty of fun projects/patterns for you to consider.
This event will be customized as a one-of-a-kind seminar but is based on Ricky’s popular Quilt Luminarium that has received rave reviews from thousands of quilters from across the country. The 120-page full-color syllabus alone is worth the registration. These are not-for-sale and are only available to registered attendees.
Ricky will also be presenting a concert full of story-telling and piano music Saturday evening at 7:00 pm.
In addition, Ricky will be sharing the ten-year backstory of the creation of Lizzy Albright and the Attic Window, a book featuring a ten-year-old, red-headed, over-imaginative girl. Through the discovery of a family heirloom quilt, Lizzy is transported to an enchanted land where a powerful curse has befallen the kingdom of Ailear. Lizzy and her companions believe they can reverse the curse, but an evil sorceress has other plans. This magical and thrilling story is described as Harry Potter meets Alice in Wonderland meets the Wizard of Oz.
Don’t miss this weekend chocked full of education, inspiration, and entertainment that has been created just for you.
Thursday, February 17, 3:00pm to 7:00pm Includes a meet and greet and dinner. Friday, February 19, 8:30am to 8:00pm Includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner and evening session. Saturday, February 20, 8:30am to 3:00pm Lectures with Ricky, Breakfast & Lunch. 3:30 to 6:30, Demos and Dinner, 7:00 to 9:00 Ricky Tims in Concert

Memories In Time Fundraiser Time Capsule Fundraising Campaign to benefit The Historic Masonic Theatre
The Memories in Time campaign is an opportunity for you to share your memory in a new cornerstone and time capsule celebrating the restoration and reopening of The Historic Masonic Theatre in 2016. A $100 donation will enable you to preserve a special memory that will be digitally protected for many years to come—until the 2016-time capsule is opened someday in the future. Additionally, each donor’s name will be engraved on a brass plaque and inserted into the time capsule. The goal for our Memories in Time campaign is $20,000. We will celebrate by sealing the capsule on July 4, 2022, and installing the new cornerstone near the original 1905 cornerstone. The 2016 restoration of the theatre has attracted regional and national attention. Since reopening, we have seen thousands of guests tour the Theatre, or attend a show or event. We are determined to do everything in our power to keep our beautiful Theatre healthy and operational. What is that special memory that you want to preserve? Perhaps it is a photo, a newspaper article, a passport, or a special letter. Your memory will be digitally saved, and the original returned to you. If you would like more information about what can be preserved, please call the Theatre, and make your donation today.... See MoreSee Less
