A Legacy Celebration
Showcase Event Featuring
The Residency Companies of the Academy Center of the Arts
A Legacy Celebration is a showcase event featuring the Resident companies of the Academy Center of the Arts. This event will be held on Tuesday, December 11, 2018 , at 7:30pm in the Historic Academy of Music Theatre.
All five Resident companies, including Charlottesville Ballet, Endstation Theatre Company, Jefferson Choral Society, Opera on the James, and Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Forest, will present a 15 – 20 performance under the ‘legacy’ theme, which ties back to the Historic Academy of Music Theatre and its own complex legacy.
The history of the Historic Academy of Music Theatre holds both positive elements and some that we often wish we could rewrite. Legacy is never simple, but it is inherited and woven in to the tapestry of who we are. At the Academy Center of the Arts, we are empowered to take this legacy and shape an exciting future that accepts the past and provides an even better future. Our Resident companies have joined us on this journey.
Tickets to A Legacy Celebration and the Holiday Movie Marathon are available to the public at an accessible price point in order to engage a wide swath of the community in the Academy’s opening week activities.
Tickets for this event will be released to members September 5 – 12, 2018. Remaining tickets will be released to the public on September 13, 2018.
