Dear Friends,

I am thrilled to be able to say to you all – our long 2 year intermission is over!

Welcome Back to The American Theatre!

2022-2023 represents our 35th Anniversary Season presenting the entire
Coastal Virginia region with performing arts excellence from around the
world, and around the corner!

Our Lighthouse Series highlights our region’s talented arts organizations that make Hampton Roads home – and our Family Fun Series is chock full of family friendly programming with our Saturday
Morning Club!

As Artistic Director, it is my goal to combine bold artistic statements with innovative creative approaches, to engender strong support from the entire community. It is with this in mind, I am ecstatic to introduce our audiences to the 2022-2023 35th Anniversary Season!

From innovative modern music to cutting-edge American jazz, from
Broadway blockbusters to a variety of Christmas and Holiday celebrations — this season’s performers are all storytellers! With or without words, these 35th Anniversary performances are telling these stories just for you!

We are glad to have the opportunity to once again share the magic of the performing arts with you. Creativity and imagination are the threads that weave our cultural tapestry and advance our mission to enhance the quality of life for the artists and audiences we serve.

Now, lean forward in your seats and get ready for a memorable year of
joyful stories as we celebrate our 35th Anniversary!

I will see you at the Theatre!
