Time truly seems to fly whenever we are enjoying something. The Farris Theatre is having a birthday celebration marking the 10th anniversary since it reopened, after an extensive renovation in 1999.
“Dreams Do Come True,” a celebration of the past 10 years of productions at the Farris Theatre in Richmond will open the new year of plays and musicals.
“It’s bits and pieces of a few productions, such as the ‘Wizard of Oz,’ selections from several Farris All Stars productions, several musical numbers featuring some of our theater family, and some ‘secret’ numbers,” said producer Sherry Smith. She also said there would be an auction.
The first production marking its grand reopening was the musical, “The Wizard of Oz,” so look for some numbers and/or scenes from this all-time favorite.
The show opens at 7 p.m. on Jan. 15. Tickets will be $5 each, no reserved seating. For more information, please contact Lesley Green, executive director, at 816-776-6684.
