The Performing Arts Council takes pleasure in announcing its first performance of the year in the reopened Encore Theater.  We will only be filling 1/2 of the theatre because of COVID restrictions (masks are required to enter and while in the theater).  Our first presentation for 2021 will be the Starvation Army Band.  The band’s repertoire includes Klezmer, Swing and Dixieland.  They perform in many venues in the Greater Washington area.  They will be an upbeat kickoff to our 2021 season.  Please see our Encore Theater Series page for the performances for the rest of 2021.

$10.00 tickets will be on sale from 4:30 p.m. till 6:00 p.m., Monday, May 15 and Tuesday, May 16  in all dining room lobbies.  Tickets will be available on Monday night but because of limited seating if you are interested in attending, please buy your tickets Monday, May 15 as there may not be any left for sales on Tuesday, May 16 or the night of the performance.

Tickets are now sold in lots A, B & C as well as special tickets for those with Walkers and those in Wheelchairs.  It is important to buy the appropriate ticket for your circumstance as these control access to the theater and ensure that you will actually get a seat for the performance.  For more information on ticket sales and various types of tickets and the effect on theater entrance, click here.
