Peach State Summer Theatre Box Office Is Now Open
VALDOSTA — The Peach State Summer Theatre Box Office is officially open for business.
The 2015 Peach State Summer Theatre season runs from June 5 through July 19 and features “Les Misérables,” “Always … Patsy Cline,” and Disney’s “The Little Mermaid.”
Individual admission is $31.28 for adults and $25.93 for students and senior citizens, including taxes and fees.
Season memberships remain available through Friday, June 5. The cost is $89.67 for adults and $73.62 for students and senior citizens, including taxes and fees. Each season membership includes three admissions to be redeemed as the member desires with advance reservations.
The Peach State Summer Theatre Box Office is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sundays. It is located on the first floor of the Valdosta State University Fine Arts Building, at the corner of Brookwood Drive and Oak Street, and can be reached by calling (229) 259-7770.
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 10 weeks, and during that time, they rehearse, build, and present three musicals in rotating repertory. This year, however, things will be a little different, as the 15-performance run of “Les Misérables” will end before the 13-performance run of Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” begins.
The 2015 Peach State Summer Theatre season marks the 26th 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!
The Georgia Legislature designated Valdosta State’s summer stock theatre program the Official Musical Theatre of the State of Georgia.
VSU’s Jacque Wheeler serves as the artistic director of Peach State Summer Theatre. H. Duke Guthrie is the managing director.
