TORTOISE VS HARE 2:
THIS TIME IT’S PERSONAL

Everyone knows that the slow-and-steady Tortoise beat the bragging Hare in the famous race – but when their great-grandkids Ro-Shell the tortoise and Jack Rabbit are talked into a rematch, anything could happen. The race will be on live TV, and their friends have a lot of ideas about how Ro-Shell and Jack can beat one another, but only good sportsmanship can win the day in this zany, lighthearted retelling of the classic fable.


MUSICAL THEATRE CABARET:
SONGS OF HOPE

Hit songs from Broadway’s greatest musicals, featuring songs of hope for these troubling times. This is an enjoyable night of music from your favorite musicals.


Averett Singers Concert
TBA


Fall AU Cougar Band Concert

The annual Averett Concert Band fall show is a mix of classic and current favorites and has something for everyone.


A NIGHT OF SHORT PLAYS
TBA

This critically acclaimed, award-winning evening of comedies combines wit, intellect, satire and just plain fun.


Averett Celebrates Christmas
TBA

A virtual extravaganza of the Cougar Band, Averett Singers, and perhaps some soloists and campus personalities spreading Christmas cheer.


PETER AND THE STARCATCHER
TBA

Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair…and the bonds of friendship, duty, and love.


League of Ordinary Gentlemen
TBA

Matt Doss, Alex Brown, Travis Williams, Sparky Schmitt, and Seth Hawker are The League of Ordinary Gentlemen, Danville’s most extraordinary cover band. Playing all your favorite hits from the 70s, 80s, 90s, the 2000s, and today (along with a few originals).


MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT
TBA

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful showgirls? The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, and was followed by two successful West End runs. The outrageous, uproarious, and gloriously entertaining story of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake will delight audiences as they search for the Holy Grail and “always look on the bright side of life.”


Spring AU Cougar Band Concert
TBA


Averett Singers Concert
TBA
