Peach State Summer Theatre Box Office Is Open For Business
VALDOSTA — Tickets are now on sale for the 2013 Peach State Summer Theatre season, which kicks off Saturday, June 1, with “The Sound of Music.”
The musical theatre season gains momentum with the opening of “The Marvelous Wonderettes” on Friday, June 14, and “A Little Night Music” on Friday, June 21. The three shows will be presented in rotating repertory through the weekend of July 13-14.
Peach State Summer Theatre, or PSST!, is Valdosta’s premiere professional summer stock theatre. Each summer, dozens of singers, dancers, technicians, managers, and creators gather on the campus of Valdosta State University for nine weeks. During that time, they rehearse, build, and present three musicals in rotating repertory.
The 2013 Peach State Summer Theatre season marks the 24th year of VSU producing professional theatre for the city of Valdosta, the state of Georgia, and beyond. From 1990 to 2004, VSU produced the Jekyll Island Musical Theatre Festival. In 2005, the summer theatre program was relocated to the university and renamed PSST! Then, in 2006, it was designated the Official Musical Theatre of the State of Georgia by the Georgia Legislature.
VSU’s Jacque Wheeler serves as the artistic director of Peach State Summer Theatre. H. Duke Guthrie is the managing director.
The Peach State Summer Theatre box office is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sundays. It is located on the first floor of the VSU Fine Arts Building, on the corner of Brookwood Drive and Oak Street, and can be reached by calling (229) 259-7770.
Individual show tickets are $25 plus tax for adults and $20 plus tax for all children, students, and senior citizens. Peach State Summer Theatre season memberships are available for $69.55, tax included, for adults and $62.06, tax included, for children, students, and senior citizens through June 1 only. Each season membership comes with three admissions for the member to redeem as he or she chooses.
