  • 11/03 – Country Music Hall of Fame Show at the Masonic Theatre

    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. • https://historicmasonictheatre.com/historic-masonic-theatre/events/

  • 12/11 – It’s a Wonderful Life: Live from WVL Radio Theatre

    “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. • https://historicmasonictheatre.com/historic-masonic-theatre/events/

  • 01/26 – Alexa Rose Trio in Concert

    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. • https://historicmasonictheatre.com/historic-masonic-theatre/events/

  • 03/10 – Church Basement Ladies: Rise Up O Men

    Church Basement Ladies: Rise Up O Men Sunday, March 10 at 2 PM in the John E. Hillert Auditorium 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.** • https://historicmasonictheatre.com/historic-masonic-theatre/events/
