2012 - 2013 Season Announce
Roanoke, VA – July 19, 2012- As Jefferson Center prepares to launch its eleventh season in Shaftman Performance Hall, we hope the community will join us in taking a moment to reflect on the role that this community theater plays in our region. There are few places that define a community more deeply than where it experiences the performing arts. A community theater encourages memory making. It encourages artistic investment. It guarantees parents an opportunity to give their children access to great art.
Jefferson Center’s new season continues a tradition that began more than a decade ago. Four distinctly different series, Star City, Jazz, Family and Jazz Club that feature world class art and are accessible to all who want to experience inspirational live art.
“We’re inviting everyone to celebrate the arts renaissance in Virginia’s Blue Ridge with us. In eleven short years, Jefferson Center has produced, pushed and prodded great live art into this region. Creating amazing nights that rival what’s available anywhere in the world,” says Cyrus Pace, Jefferson Center Executive Director. “That’s why we are thrilled to celebrate the ongoing arts renaissance happening all around us. Live music, dance and theater are happening nearly every day in Southwest Virginia. There is a movement throughout this region, a rebirth of the arts, and Jefferson Center is proud to continue to play an integral role in not only the performances themselves, but as the venue for many of the community programs and local arts organizations that host their own shows inside our community theater. In fact, more than half of the performances inside historic Shaftman Performance Hall are not exclusive to Jefferson Center, but are organized and performed by this community’s arts programs.”
In addition to the incredible lineup this season, upgrades have been made to Jefferson Center’s online ticketing system. For the first time in our history, patrons will have the option to choose their specific seats and complete their entire transaction online. Thanks to this upgrade, the “best seat available” is the one that you choose! Additionally, patrons are now able to purchase tickets to Roanoke Symphony Orchestra, Opera Roanoke, and Jefferson Center shows all from the same box office. This collaborative solution reduces expenses for all three organizations and creates a single point of sale for all of our patrons and supporters.
