COVID-19 UPDATE: April 7, 2020
Current state and federal restrictions in response to the COVID19 pandemic have caused the Miller Center to temporarily suspend April performances, and it is with much optimism that we look toward the second half of June. All patrons holding tickets for the April date will be automatically switched to the new date, retaining the same seating. If you are unable to attend the show on the new date, we will be happy to issue you credit toward a performance in the 2020-2021 season. We plan to announce the 2020-2021 season in the next few weeks. For ticketing and other patron information, please visit the Patron Information page.
Many thanks for all your support and understanding and we look forward to seeing you in June.
