See "A Prairie Home Companion" live at Wolf Trap This Saturday, May 25
WMRA is pleased to announce that we will be heading to Wolf Trap this Saturday, May 25, for a live broadcast performance of A Prairie Home Companion.
Watching a live performance of A Prairie Home Companion is a rare and special treat. Of course, there’s Garrison Keillor himself – the ringmaster of the show. It’s amazing to watch him improvising as the show goes along - adjusting scripts, changing the order of acts - all in front of a live radio audience of some four million listeners. There’ll be the news from Lake Wobegon … probably an appearance by Guy Noir … and who knows what else.
The all-inclusive cost for our trip to Wolf Trap, which includes transportation, lunch, and the show, is $140 per person. You’ll be accompanied by WMRA staff members.
Seats are limited and it’s first-come, first-served.
Details of the trip:
- Leave the driving to us. We’ll be traveling by luxury touring bus, featuring nice, comfortable seats and an on-board restroom. We’ll start in Harrisonburg [1:00 p.m. at the JMU Convocation Center], with additional stops at Waynesboro Town Center on Rt. 340 at I-64, Exit 94 [at about 1:45 p.m.] and Charlottesville's Fashion Square Mall on Rt. 29 North [at about 2:30 p.m.].
- Tasty box lunches will be provided by Salad Creations, offering an array of sandwich and salad choices and will be distributed on the bus around 4:15 p.m. Snacks and beverages also will be provided.
- Our reserved seats at Wolf Trap are under cover, Rear Orchestra Left. The seating chart is here. By the way, orchestra-level seats for this show are already sold out, so we are pleased to be able to offer you these great seats.
- The show starts promptly at 5:45 p.m. and ends shortly after the 8:00 broadcast sign-off.
- After the show, we’ll retrace our steps – arriving in Charlottesville at about 10:15 p.m., in Waynesboro at about 11:00 pm., and at JMU at about 11:45 p.m.
