An Evening at the Theater with the Rising Professionals
Join the Rising Professionals of the Chamber of Commerce for a night at the theater! In Charlottesville, the business and arts community enjoy a robust, symbiotic relationship that makes for a unique and exciting place to live and work.
We will gather at Live Arts, where attendees will enjoy a complimentary drink and charcuterie, a tour of the building, and a chance to network with other Rising Professionals before brief remarks from Executive Director, Anne Hunter on how the business community intersects with volunteer-powered, community theater.
We encourage you to purchase tickets and stay for a stunning performance of INTO THE WOODS, which will begin at 7:30PM.
About INTO THE WOODS: In these magical woods, fairytales like Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Little Red Riding Hood get a refreshingly dark twist. James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece … and a rare modern classic. INTO THE WOODS received a Tony Award for Best Score, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Actress in a Musical when it debuted on Broadway in 1987. Broadway recently announced the return of INTO THE WOODS this summer, which will feature performances from Sara Bareilles, Gavin Creel, and Phillipa Soo, among many others.
Live Arts’ production of INTO THE WOODS marks this year’s Teen Summer Musical, an annual program where the cast is made up of teens in the community.
